Make Sure Your Products Can Withstand Various Environments

Climatic testing puts a product through a range of environmental scenarios – from heat to cold, humidity to pressure – to ascertain how well it can withstand these different situations. Climatic testing procedures mimic the exposure that technical products and devices will be subject to in real-world conditions and ensures the product can perform satisfactorily in its intended environments.

Our Climatic Testing Services

climatic chamberTÜV SÜD has extensive experience of climatic testing and uses the most advanced tests and equipment to put a product through its paces. Our climatic chambers (Kanata Lab pictured to the left) can fit items up to 6m x 5m x 4m with a temperature range of -65⁰C to +200⁰C and a rate of change of up to 10⁰C per minute. Our chambers are capable of controlling humidity between 5% and saturation. This minimizes 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 also meet the requirements of MIL STD 810, DEF STAN 00-35, RTCA DO160, IEC 60068 and many more international standards.
