It is not always sufficient to carry out climatic tests individually, because environments occur in combination in the real world. Our specialist facilities provide the ability to simulate combinations such as temperature, pressure and vibration or to vibrate at temperature extremes from -55ºC to +135ºC. Whatever the conditions, the environmental laboratory is able to simulate a range of natural and induced environmental conditions that are likely to be encountered anywhere on land, at sea or in the air.
Conditions and test cycles defined in national and international specifications can be simulated, including:
The Electromagnetic Engineering and Technology EMC Facility offers a comprehensive test, design advice, prediction and analysis and computational electromagnetics service to cover a wide range of specifications. It is a UKAS accredited laboratory.
Very large systems or individual units can be accommodated in test chambers up to 1800 cubic metres volume. In addition to the impressive test facilities, the following can be offered:
