Why is Climatic Testing required?
Technical devices and products are often exposed to climatic and mechanical stresses. They must work smoothly despite cold, heat, wetness and bad weather.
How we can help
The climatic chambers can fit items up to 6m x 5m x 4m with a temperature range of -65ºC to +200ºC and a rate of change of up to 10ºC per minute. Our chambers are capable of controlling humidity between 5% and saturation. This minimises set up time by eliminating the need to switch between chambers for different tests. Every effort has been made to make the testing process easier for our customers with 60Hz, 400Hz, 415V and generator fed outlets available throughout the laboratory.
Our facilities allow us to meet the requirements of MIL STD 810, DEF STAN 00-35, RTCA DO160, BS EN 60068 to name but a few. Any test not on our UKAS scope which is within our capability can be added quickly through our flexible schedule, which is a rare privilege granted to us by our accrediting authority.
