RAILWAY ENCLOSURES - TESTED TO ALL STANDARDS

Where Performance meets Dependability

Design Verification Testing_Horizontal.webp

THERMAL SIMULATIONS
Simulations of temperature distribution and airflow patterns assist in designing the cooling concept and in locating hot spots.

 

SALT SPRAY TESTING
Corrosion resistance and surface ageing of the test object are tested in a vaporised salt solution.

 

SHOCK AND VIBRATION TESTING
nVent SCHROFF solutions assure impact resistance in mobile applications. nVent products are tested with typical loads, either in-house or in  laboratories of certified institutions.

WIND-TUNNEL TESTING
Airflow volumes and resistance characteristics are determined in a wind tunnel, allowing us to establish air cooling for optimal efficiency.

 

NOISE MEASUREMENT
The noise level generated by an object is measured using the latest technology to ensure conformity to the industry standard.

CLIMATE BAY TESTING
Products can be tested under extreme environmental conditions in our in-house climate bays.

 

HF SHIELDING TESTING
HF shielding is designed into the basic structures of nVent SCHROFF Railway products. Testing takes place in our own laboratory or at the High Frequency Institute the University at Karlsruhe, Germany.
