We are CTC Advanced

The major features of CTC advanced are testing and certification of electronic devices with most advanced telecommunication interfaces. CTC advanced GmbH is versed in worldwide approval procedures and applies them professionally for a quick and independent homologation of their customers’ devices – no matter what industry they belong to. Measurements of radio interfaces, electromagnetic compatibility as well as electrical safety in labs accredited according to ISO 17025 provide the essential fundament of certification.

In CTC advanced’s environmental simulation labs products are being tested to verify their robustness towards environmental impact. They are even subjected to destructive examinations, e.g. during safety tests of batteries.

CTC advanced’s labs for “payment & identification” test and certify devices for cashless payment transactions, like credit cards and card readers, as well as ATMs on the basis of versatile accreditations in the banking sector.

The line-up of products tested in CTC advanced’s accredited labs is broad and ranges from E-marking for subassemblies of vehicles to contactless credit cards and from hearing aids to MRI scanners.


News from CTC advanced

Now, that we are active in our newly built testing hall for several months already, we would like to inform you about further updates.

Of course, we are aware of the constantly increasing demands of the automotive industry and therefore we upgrade our services for you! In medical engineering high expectations on products play an important role and justify the need for time- and cost-effective testing procedures. Beginning of June, we have taken our improved and enhanced crash test bench into operation. We are now able to test payloads of 1.000 kg according to the high acceleration profiles of ECE R 100.

Finally, we have completed our newly built 5-storied office building. The first colleagues have already moved to their new offices and further employees will follow appropriately. This gives us more space for our team – more space for more ideas and innovations.

At CTC everything is progressing

Of course, our investment is not limited to our new buildings. We are also expanding our existing resources to serve our customers of any industry comprehensively and with the service, they are familiar with.

Thus, we have carried out the conversion of a test hall with completely new measuring technology for the fields of radio testing and EMC. For this modernization, we have invested 600.000 Euro. The test hall is equipped with a rotary plate of 2 m for test items up to a mass of 1.000 kg. We can flexibly conduct field measurements or measurements of emitted interference as well as interference immunity measurements with field strengths up to 30 V/m.

And we are also continuing to grow in terms of accreditations and recognitions. Not least thanks to the VISA Excellence Award, we received now for the third consecutive year, we have demonstrated our outstanding and customer-focused service.
