Raditeq – 30th Anniversary; On the 1st of May 1992 A small electronics company was started under the name Dijkstra Advies (advise) Research EMC B.V. or DARE!! for short. Specializing in custom electronics, training and Advise for the EMC sector. It would not be long before DARE!! began to make a name for itself.
DARE!! quickly expanded their arsenal from custom electronics and advise to EMC measurements, CE Certification and more. From the performing of EMC tests a need for better and more effective EMC products arose. This need in EMC products became the origin of most Raditeq’s products which were specifically designed for the purpose of EMC measurements and testing. This need resulted in revolutionary new EMC measurement and test techniques such as the first LASER powered E-Field probe and the first electric field generator. The first LASER power Probe; The RadiSense® series was conceptualized, developed and made a reality by Raditeq’s technical director and owner, Patrick Dijkstra. Another remarkable invention from Raditeq was the world’s first Electric Field Generator – The RadiField® series, creating EM Field at and astronomical efficient rate! Other EMC oriented Raditeq devices and applications are; RadiMation®- automated EMC test software | RadiPower® – Power Meters | RadiGen® – Signal generators | RadiSwitch® – Coaxial switch cards and more!
Out of the need to perform the most accurate, efficient and effective EMC tests DARE!! needed to have a powerful and capable software package. Not able to get this from the current market, the Software engineers from DARE!! started to develop their own software meant for internal use. Only when other EMC labs saw the capabilities for RadiMation® the first sale(s) were made possible. Nowadays RadiMation® is one of the biggest EMC test packages available on the market.
16th November 2020 – The beginning of Raditeq
From the 16th of November 2020 DARE!! Products the hardware and software division changed the name to Raditeq. The change came from a need to differentiate between the services and the products of the company.
