Environmental Simulation

Many products are exposed to environmental influences like vibrations and mechanical impact during their transport or operation. Very often they must also withstand thermal influences, humidity or excessive sun exposure.

Through simulation of changing environmental conditions CTC advanced´s environmental test lab can examine whether components of all kinds meet the necessary conformity requirements regarding safety and working conditions. Environmental tests can be carried out on nearly every industrial material and are important to companies across all sectors, whether Automotive, Medical, Consumer Electronics or Household appliances.

Testing of the protection against dust according current standards with several types of dust.

 

  • internal dimension 1200 x 1200 x 1200 mm
  • max load 300 kg
  • compressed air 3 – 6 bar

The crash and shock bench is integrated in a protected area and can be used universally. Test samples up to 200 kg can be crashed at a speed of up to 50 km/h, 60 times gravity:

 

  • Vmax: 57 km/h
  • Testing mass up to 200 kg
  • Slider size: 800 x 1000 mm
  • Driving force: 600 kN
  • Max. acceleration: 60 g
  • Crash block: 8 t

In the walk-in salt spray chamber the corrosion behavior due to the exposure of salt air, salt fog or salt spray can be simulated in fast motion:

 

  • Chamber base area: 3 x 2 m
  • Floor load: up to 1000 kg/m²
  • Corrosion tests according to IEC, ISO and VDA norms

This test procedure enables the simulation of aircraft transportations under vacuum conditions. Aerospace applications can be tested as well.

 

  • The chamber generates a low pressure up to almost an absolute vacuum
  • Appropriate for sample sizes up to 2000 x 1500 x 500 mm and a testing mass of up to 500 kg

Test results which occur during crash, shock or vibration tests and cannot be perceived by the human eye, can be recorded through a high-speed camera:

 

  • 2500 fps (frames per second) in Full HD (1920 x 1080)
  • 5300 fps in HD Ready (1280 x 720)
  • 10000 fps in 640 x 480
  • The measuring values can be recorded simultaneously and image-synchronized
  • IP 11 bis 66K und IPX9K
  • 2500 x 6000 mm
  • Test load up to 300 kg
  • Turntable diameter 1500 mm
  • Sun simulation tests according to DIN 75220 for the automotive industry (heat and damp)
  • Irradiated area 700 mm x 700 mm
  • Test capacity 1000 l
