Rail - environmental simulation

From climatic to mechanical environmental simulation tests Phoenix Testlab has one of the best equipped laboratories for the railway sector.

Climatic tests in the range from - 50 ° C to 180 ° C, with or without humidity option, with a test room volume of 0.5 m³ up to 24 m³ and vibration tests up to a total weight of max. 2t, e.g. Control cabinets, air conditioning units or printers are marginal values of our possibilities. We also offer our services in the field from the creation of fixtures through construction to the adaptation of your products with our test systems.
