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.



New services and progress

Even in times of pandemic we continue to broaden our range of services and our accreditations for you. As for example we have successfully updated our quality management system to the new requirements of the revised DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 2018 as a globally valid standard for the accreditation of laboratories. In the field of radio testing, we are able to cover even the frequency range up to 500 GHz and finally yet importantly, we are now accredited for EMVCo 3-D Secure tests.

Despite the blow we suffered at the end of February due to a fire in our newly built test hall at the end of February, we also offer enhanced services in the affected area – battery testing and environmental simulation – in the field of eMobility. We have made great progress in the restoration work following the fire damage and expect the test hall to be rebuilt by the end of September.

We are particularly proud that even during the restoration work we were able to keep all our services in the field of battery testing and environmental simulation available for you.

Please feel free to have a look around our website. We have optimized many sections for you and look forward to your inquiries.

As there is meanwhile an occupational health and safety standard from the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, we have inspected our premises to this effect. We are pleased that we can provide office space for our employees in compliance with which the hygiene guidelines and the distance rules.

Of course, we are aware of the risks that Corona still poses and we continue to pay special attention to your safety and that of our employees. We especially thank you for your trust in these times and for continuing to plan your projects with us.
