Large-scale solar and climate simulation - environmental testing

It is increasingly important that all types of end products should be able to survive the extremes of climates and conditions anywhere in the world. SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden offers a full range of testing and knowledge as needed in order to verify the ability of equipment to withstand any specified environmental conditions.


The effects of, say, climate on vehicles, electrical cubicles, antennas - in other words, practically everything that will be exposed outdoors can be catastrophic for some components.

With the very latest technology, backed by long experience, SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden can very precisely simulate whatever climate conditions you need, in order to verify the performance of products and anticipate any problems that such conditions might cause.
