Environmental (impact on product)
There are several extreme climatic scenarios that are quite relevant for many products, whether they occur during operation, transport or storage. In industrial, marine, oil or train/subway environments products are constantly subject to harsh environments and extreme climatic conditions.
The Nemko reliability laboratory has a series of climatic/temperature rooms and chambers for testing products and material behavior under different extreme climatic conditions. Fully accredited testing is available for most standards.
Nemko provides testing for mechanical shock on products according to IEC 60068-2-27.
Mechanical shock is one of the most common causes of nonstructural failure in mechanical and electrical systems.
Nemko has a large laboratory for testing various types of water ingress. This can include condensation via dripping, spraying, splashing and hosing to submerging in water tanks. It can also include dust ingress in dust circulation chambers and ingress tests with different foreign objects and different standardized access probes.
Vibrations, drops and careless handling are examples of a product's worst enemies. Some of these mechanical stress situations are prone to occur in many product lifecycles.
These mechanical conditions either make instant damage to the product or they insert potential damages that may only be visible after continuing use. They may be devastating to the product's performance and/or safety of the user. It may also cause malfunctions, reduced efficiency or total failure.
Vibration testing can help ensure that your new design will survive its intended environment. Submitting your product for vibration analysis pays for itself by reducing field return costs through improved product reliability.
Our vibration testing facilities contains 3 electrodynamic shakers to provide over 22000N in the most used vibration testing events – sine and random vibration analysis.
