About climatic testing

Climatic testing puts a product through a range of scenarios – from heat to cold, humidity to pressure – to ascertain how well it can withstand different environments.The testing procedure is useful for exposing technical products and devices to the kind of real-world stresses and strains a device will undergo on the market.

Temperature, humidity and other climatic influences can affect the performance of electronic products, parts and components, or even cause their failure. Climatic testing simulates the life cycle environments that are encountered by a product and ensures the product can perform satisfactorily in its intended environments.

TÜV SÜD's climatic testing Services

TÜV SÜD has extensive experience of climatic testing and uses the most advanced tests and equipment to put a product through its paces. Our climatic chambers can fit items up to 6m x 5m x 4m with a temperature range of -65⁰C to +200⁰C and a rate of change of up to 10⁰C per minute. Our chambers are capable of controlling humidity between 5% and saturation.

This minimises set up time by eliminating the need to switch between chambers for different tests. Every effort has been made to make the testing process easier for our customers with 60Hz, 400Hz, 415V and generator fed outlets available throughout the laboratory.

Our facilities allow us to meet the requirements of MIL STD 810, DEF STAN 00-35, RTCA DO160, BS EN 60068 and many more international standards. We can test for:

  • High and low temperatures
  • Humidity
  • Altitude with temperature capabilities
  • Ingress protection, water spray
  • Driving rain
  • Drip testing
  • Ice loading
  • Salt corrosion
  • Immersion
  • Over pressure
  • Rapid decompression
  • Thermal shock
  • Water resistance
