CETECOM
ENABLING MARKET ACCESS

ENVIRONMENTAL SIMULATION

CETECOM‘s environmental test center is accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 and offers a range of state-of-the-art test equipment to assess the resistence, long-term behaviour and ageing effects of a product under various simulated conditions. CETECOM tests against international standards (such as DIN IEC 60068-2-1, -2, -6, -14, -27, -30, -38, -47, -48, -64, -78) or customized standards which include also those of many automotive manufacturers. The accredited lab and test environment is constantly further developed following the latest norms.

SALT SPRAY CHAMBER

In the walk-in salt spray chamber the corrosion behaviour due to the exposure of salt air, salt fog or salt spray can be simulated in fast motion:

  • Chamber base area: 3 x 2 m
  • Floor load: up to 1000 kg/m²
  • Corrosion tests according to IEC, ISO and VDA norms

VACUUM CHAMBER

This test procedure enables the simulation of aircraft transportations under vacuum conditions. Aerospace applications can be tested as well.

  • The chamber generates a low pressure up to almost an absolute vacuum
  • Appropriate for sample sizes up to 2000 x 1500 x 500 mm and a testing mass of up to 500 kg 

HIGH-SPEED CAMERA

Test results which occur during crash, shock or vibration tests and cannot be perceived by the human eye, can be recorded through a high-speed camera:

  • 2500 fps (frames per second) in Full HD (1920 x 1080)
  • 5300 fps in HD Ready (1280 x 720)
  • 10000 fps in 640 x 480
  • The measuring values can be recorded simultaneously and image-synchronized
