Our Testing Capabilities

Product Testing in our Test Laboratory

In our environmental simulation laboratory we offer mechanical, climatic and corrosive testing for their wireless products. Below you will find an overview:

Performance for your Products

The global environmental influences on many materials, vehicles and technical devices are enormous. They have to withstand climatic conditions such as vibrations, high temperatures or even humidity. Therefore, professional environmental and climatic testing is essential to demonstrate possible deficiencies. Compared to testing under real conditions, environmental simulation offers the time-saving possibility to perform climatic as well as mechanical tests on the product.

Thanks to our many years of experience and expertise, we can offer you efficient and reliable test procedures to help you predict the anticipated product performance. This means that you save time and resources by relying on our experienced experts and state-of-the-art testing equipment.

Together with our subsidiary IBL-Lab GmbH, we are the ideal partner for your product development. We offer a wide range of testing services that help you minimize costs and achieve rapid market access. With our expertise and precision, we ensure your success. Be ready for the challenges of the environment and contact us.

Insight Lab

Testing in the Climate Chamber

Today we take a look behind the scenes of environmental simulation testing for electrical appliances in climate chambers. Electrical devices are often exposed to extreme temperatures during operation. Our climate chambers allow us to simulate realistic conditions to ensure the performance and reliability of your products. From arctic cold to extreme heat and humidity, our climate chambers can simulate a variety of environments. Find out more in the video!

Ingress Protection Class Testing - IEC 60529

Discover the IP test in the environmental laboratory of the "Insight Lab" series of our subsidiary IBL-Lab GmbH:
Today's video shows an IP test according to IEC 60529. This test evaluates the water and dust resistance of enclosures and is an important part of the certification of electrical products. Watch the video and find out more!

Corrosion testing machinery

Corrosion testing & chemical resistance

With the help of a salt spray test according to DIN EN ISO 9227 and specifically selected aggressive liquids, the corrosion resistance of a material or a corrosion protection coating on it can be determined in principle.

The experience and know-how of the engineers of IBL-Lab GmbH help to perform these important tests and to evaluate the test results afterwards. IBL-Lab GmbH draws on many years of experience in testing to perform the indispensable corrosion testing and to assess the effect of the damage after the test.

Frequently Asked Questions

All you need to know about Environment Simulation Testing

Why is environmental testing important?

By simulating various climatic conditions and mechanical stresses, your product is prepared for use in practice. Ideally, the tests are carried out at a very early stage of product development to determine the expected resistance in the anticipated environments.

The equipment material is exposed to extreme conditions during the various tests to detect premature wear such as aging and abrasion. In this way, both the product design and the manufacturing process can be optimized and validated.

What are environmental test chambers?

In a climatic chamber, a specific climate is created for the duration of the test and, if necessary, also changed during this time. As a rule, this involves temperature and humidity. However, factors such as solar radiation, CO² concentration or rain, snow and wind can also be simulated.

Which climate conditions can be simulated?

Temperature, humidity, altitude, salt fog, salt Spray, sand & dust, solar radiation, FAA Fire, HALT/HASS, acceleration, wind & rain, hailstorms, ice & snow, overpressure, mixed flowing gas, explosive atmospheres, fuel icing and lots more.

What is environmental test equipment?

The most important instruments used inside and outside the laboratory include:

  • Sample preparation equipment

  • Temperature chambers

  • Biofuel analyzers

  • Balances

  • Evaporators

  • Stability chambers

  • Particle counters

  • pH meters

  • GC systems, autosamplers and software

  • HPLC systems for carbamate and explosives analysis

What are the IP protection classes?

The IP code, also known as IP protection class, consists of two digits that indicate the degree of protection of a device against harmful influences. The first digit stands for protection against foreign bodies and contact (0-6), while the second digit describes protection against moisture and water (0-9). The combinations are specified in the DIN EN 60529 and ISO 20653 standards.
