Altitude testing is performed in order to see how equipment behaves when stored, operated, or transported at high elevations with low pressure.
If not stored, the device is operated at its full duty cycle during the altitude testing. The pressure in the altitude test chamber is then reduced. The temperature is stabilizing while the pressure is reduced during this test, which begins at ambient temperature.
For a wide range of product types, our laboratories can simulate altitudes up to 21.336 meters equivalent to 44,4 mbar.
Overpressure testing is used to examine the behavior of the aircraft during phases with increased pressure.
