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.



There's nothing knocking us down

Surely, there is no need to stress how difficult this time is for all of us: the uncertainty about the Corona virus, its effects on our economy and culture and the complete future development.

Maybe you have learned from our newsletter or the media that a fire severely affected one of our test halls in our environmental simulation department at the end of February. This newly built hall which we took into operation at the end of 2019 was heavily damaged. We have restored the test area at great expense. Thanks to our staff members for bringing in special personal efforts, we were able to resume operations in the hall after only a few weeks. We assure you: We are back on track for you and your projects with us! Should your project be one of the few with a slight time lag, we appreciate your kind understanding.

Our new 300 kN shaker, which is located in the affected hall – but there in a separate soundproof cabin – was able to withstand the fire and is ready for your projects. With an investment volume of approx. 2.3 million Euros, we have created the opportunity here to carry out vibration tests on large test specimens with simultaneous climatic superposition.

... on the contrary – we even take it up a notch!

Of course, we are not only making progress in the field of automotive/environmental simulation! In particular, our business segment medical testing has significantly extended its scope of accreditation to secure global market access.

For medical products with radio technologies for instance, we have developed a new test setup to check their coexistence capability. This verification is part of an FDA (U. S. Food & Drug Administration) guideline for wireless technologies and thus an essential step on the way to the American market. Due to a high degree of automation, we can carry out the measurements significantly faster and more cost-effective.

In the field of payment & identification, we are in preparation of our accreditation for EMVCo 3-D secure tests. 3-D secure is a secure messaging protocol for CNP transactions (CNP = card not present) on PCs and mobile devices and is used for secure user authentication.
