Opel ADAM ROCKS Undergoes Electromagnetic Tests
|   Friday, June 13, 2014
The Opel ADAM ROCKS is ready for action at the Opel's EMC Centre, a place that ensures consistent performance of the car's electrical systems. Advanced communication and infotainment systems are there to raise the bar in terms of testing requirements. Now, is the time for the Opel ADAM ROCKS (available in September) to see if it passes the tests.

After the recent world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show, Opel will soon begin to take orders for its new mini miracle.
In September, the first mini crossover with three doors and a length of less than four meters will add color to the streets of Europe.

The Opel ADAM ROCKS will have the new 1.0 ECOTEC turbo engine with direct injection developed by Opel. This powerful and compact engine, available as an option in a 66 kW / 90 hp or 85 kW / 115 hp version, sets new standards in the three cylinder engine class in terms of reducing noise and vibration, as well as comfort.

Also, there is the unmistakable design of a small agile vehicle with a unique Swing Top fabric roof and of course, its advanced IntelliLink infotainment is greatly appreciated too. Therefore, the ADAM ROCKS offers a full range of innovative electronic navigation and entertainment along with ample connectivity options.
Of course, all this technology should work perfectly from day one and throughout the life of the vehicle. Therefore, the ADAM ROCKS, just like any other Opel, must pass the examination at the EMC Center in Rüsselsheim.

EMC is short for electro-magnetic compatibility and Opel engineers at the EMC laboratories of the company have been involved throughout the development program of the vehicle. At each stage of the process, they ensure that there is no mutual interference between different electronic systems. In the old times for example, all you had to suppress is typical radio interference caused by the vehicle alternator, ignition system, wiper motor, or other similar components. Currently, the task is much more complex.

In fact, the ADAM ROCKS, like other models ADAM offers a wide range of modern electronic functions. These include safety features such as ESP, and electronic brake force distribution and parking assistant, sound system and of course all the electronic components of the infotainment system.

With full connectivity options through the IntelliLink great expectations are created in terms of interference suppression. The electronic systems are therefore completely isolated from external influences and the ADAM ROCKS is the proof that this is possible as effectively with its unique fabric roof Swing Top, as in the case of a fixed roof sedan.

In the specially equipped rooms of the Centre, which meet quality standards for professional testing laboratories applied by the German Accreditation in accordance with ISO 17025, Opel engineering teams are testing vehicle electronics reaction to all possible electromagnetic interferences. These propagate through the cable or over air and the vehicle is exposed to all possible ranges of frequencies.

The weird looking absorbent material on the walls is designed to absorb the emitted waves, because they are not randomly redirected the vehicle. An Opel model receives green light from the EMC Center only after all the car's systems cannot be affected at all by interference from external sources of electromagnetic radiation. For the new ADAM ROCKS and its electronic systems, this means that it passed the examination with flying colors. Nothing can disturb you while you enjoy the infotainment system, without any interference, of the new Opel mini crossover.
