More Safety for Your Electrical Devices through Environmental Simulation
Electrical devices and their accessories may be exposed to massive climate change and mechanical stress. Variations in temperature, moisture, dust, shocks or strong vibrations should not, however, have an impact on the functionality of the devices. Are your electrical components or devices suitable for outdoor use?
TÜV Rheinland services in the field of quality assurance and control can help to ensure the safety of electrical devices. Similarly, the operational reliability of the electrical components is maintained through regular functional tests.
Our laboratory for environmental simulation offers climate tests for your electrical products according to all required standards. Whether IEC/EN 60068, ISO 16750, EN 61373, ISO 20653 or customer-specific requirements as VW80000 – we find the right standard for every product. Our test laboratory is accredited in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025, so the test protocols and reports prepared by us are widely accepted.
Our core competence: component testing according to company guidelines for the automotive, rail, ship and aerospace supplier industries. With our impartial tests, you document the functional reliability of your electrical products in extreme situations.
