Environmental Simulation

Electrical Components and Devices Put to the Test

Variations in temperature, moisture, dust, shocks or strong vibrations – are your electrical components or equipment suitable for outdoor use? We can submit your products to climatic tests, can check impact resistance, or can also test electrical safety. Our core competence: testing components in accordance with company policy for the supply industry in the automotive, rail, and aviation fields. Our neutral tests fully document how suitable your products are for extreme situations. And really help customers decide which product best to purchase.
