TRaC extends environmental test services

06 September 2010

TRaC, a leading provider of testing, approvals and certification services, has further extended its environmental test capabilities with the installation of a Lansmont 95 shock test machine. The investment, at TRaC’s Warwick facility, augments a shock, impact and vibration test installation that already comprises 14 electromagnetic "shakers" and an alternative design of drop test machine.

The Lansmont 95 is a vertical free-fall drop shock test unit, with a square table size of 950 x 950 mm and a payload capacity (mass of the unit to be tested) of 1000 kg. It provides a carefully-controlled environment for drop-testing, in which shock pulses have a known profile and are fully repeatable. The test machine will apply half sine, final peak sawtooth and trapezoidal waveforms, at acceleration levels of up to 800g. It allows shock testing with the device-under-test energised, and has the facility to acquire up to ten channels of data from the shock test.

TRaC’s environmental test laboratory is fully UKAS accredited; the area in which the new machine has been installed is purpose-built, with all appropriate safety features, and can carry out testing on both commercial and defence equipment.
