Industry - environmental simulation

The range of test machinery and the expertise of our engineers in the environmental simulation laboratory are ideally suited to extreme test requirements. Climatic tests in the range from -40°C to +180°C at a volume of 19,000 liters and vibration tests for control cabinets up to 0.5 t are the limits of our capabilities. If required, we can carry out your vibration tests with climatic testing.

Determine the maximum limits of your products under reproducible environmental conditions such as salt spray, vibrations, climate, dust, and water at Phoenix Testlab.

We are happy to combine the above tests with electrical safety tests to provide you with a cost-effective quote.
