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.


We move forward – our new testing hall is running

Probably you are already following us on our News feed – in which we inform about the construction progress we have made.

In the last weeks, we have equipped our newly built test hall with any necessary infrastructure and started with the operation of our measurement resources. The first customers already benefit from our services, we offer in this new building.

However, we will certainly not stop at this point. Preparations to put a new shaker into operation during the coming summer are already running. This additional shaker will fit to the currently needed sample sizes and thus, we will be ready to serve our customers even more comprehensive in the field of battery and environmental testing. Of course, we will notify you in advance.
