Climatic testing

Your product needs climatic testing in order to ensure it will withstand extreme climatic conditions. Involve Nemko early in the process to avoid delay to market and excessive cost.

Several extreme climatic scenarios are relevant for products during:

  • Operation
  • Transport
  • Storage

Fully accredited testing is available for most standards.

The Nemko reliability laboratory includes a series of climatic rooms and chambers for testing your product’s behavior under extreme climatic conditions.

The effects of temperature and humidity over a wide range of combinations and levels are simulated according to IEC 60068-2-series.

Low temperature IEC 60068-2-1
Dry heat IEC 60068-2-2
Damp heat, cyclic IEC 60068-2-30
Damp heat, steady state IEC 60068-2-1
Change of temperature IEC 60068-2-14
Low air pressure IEC 60068-2-13
Salt mist IEC 60068-2-11
Corrosion IEC 60068-2-52
Combine temperature with vibration IEC 60068-2-50 and IEC 60068-2-51
Combine temperature with low air pressure IEC 60068-2-40 and IEC 60068-2-41

We test according to relevant product standards and specifications, for example:

  • IEC 60721-series
  • ETSI 300 019
  • IEC 60945
