Types of testing

In accordance to your requirements we perform a large variety of electrical tests and environmental simulations in our labs. No matter whether for a standard test, a special solution or a combination of overlay of several test units. We are also your partner when it comes to tests of the current profiles, the lifetime or an environmental test superimposed with a mechanical test.
