Numerous hours have been invested in designing and manufacturing your electronic equipment, but can it stand up to the elements? At TÜV SÜD Product Service, we provide environmental simulation testing that demonstrates your product's ability to survive and operate in the environmental extremes of temperature, humidity, vibration, shock, sun, fungus, and more.
Through environmental testing, you are ensured your equipment operates without interruption, failure, or malfunction, when subjected to environmental forces.
TÜV SÜD America provides Environmental Testing and Certification for:
Accelerated Life Testing
RTCA/DO-160 and EUROCAE/ED-14
RTCA/DO-160 is published by RTCA, Inc., a global organization comprised of industry and government representatives which develop industry standards to assure the safety and reliability of all Aviation Electronics equipment (Avionics). Manufacturers of Commercial Avionics equipment selling their products in the United States, Europe, and around the globe must meet RTCA requirements, including RTCA/DO-160. The European Organization for Civil Aviation Electronics (EUROCAE) works jointly with RTCA in the development of avionics standards, and publishes its own, identical document known as EUROCAE/ED-14.
TÜV SÜD Product Service is a member of RTCA and participates in the development and ongoing change of this standard.
MIL-STD-810 specifies the requirements and test procedures for equipment that must survive and operate when exposed to the extreme effects of the physical environment. Testing includes temperature, humidity, vibration, shock, sun, fungus, etc.
Accelerated Life Testing (HALT)
HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing) is an accelerated testing procedure that tests your product's overall durability and dependability. HALT also provides insight into your product's structural integrity and highlights potential design flaws before the product is mass-produced and marketed. This enables your company to make a durable product that is second to none. In testing, your product is subjected to different levels of applied temperature (hot and cold) and multi-access vibrations. Overall your product can be tested for years of dependable service within days.
