Electrical and electronic testing

  • measurement of direct and alternating voltages and currents
  • frequency and capacitance measurements
  • measurements of inductance and resistance
  • electrification, electrical strength of insulation, insulation clearances
  • capacity of cells and batteries and short-circuit resistance

Fire tests “flammability” for

  • determining the flammability of materials used in motor vehicles (ISO 3795, FMVSS 302),
  • oxygen index according to EN ISO 4589-2,
  • flammability of electric and optical fibre cables and wires using a 1kW compound flame and a diffusion flame,
  • flammability of plastics using a 50W test flame with horizontal and vertical specimen positioning (e.g. UL94),
  • determination of the flammability of thin, flexible, vertically positioned fittings exposed to a small flame ignition source,
  • flammability of plastics using a 500W test flame,
  • flammability of textiles, vertically positioned specimens,
  • flammability of textiles, vertically positioned specimens, flammability of glow wire.
