ADVENT PLT ADE-200KIT Test Results

The Test Results from a Notified Body: ADVENT PLT ADE-200KIT

This page is dedicated to Advent who kindly decided to also make PLT equipment incapable of meeting the European Standards for Conducted Emissions.

It should be noted that at the time of writing, these are the 'Winners' for the highest level of pollution so far observed from a PLT device which has been tested to CISPR levels. Congratulations Advent!
