Shock tests

Mechanical shock has the potential for damaging a product. For this reason there are shock resistance requirements based on a number of international standards, depending on a luminaire's intended application and purpose. We test our luminaires in accordance with these requirements for type approval purposes.

Sometimes a shock may result in only minor damage which may not be critical for use. However, cumulative minor damage from several shocks could eventually result in the product becoming unusable, or cause the service life of the product to be shortened. Therefore it is important that we should know the effects of mechanical shocks on our products. Shock testing is an important element in many type approval processes.

Free fall shock test stand (half-sine)

Objects with a maximum weight of 70 kg can be mounted on the free-fall shock facility. Each shock pulse is recorded in an oscillogram. Depending on the height of drop, a maximum of 300 G can be achieved.

Our free fall shock test stand is designed to perform high-G/short duration shock impulses. This free fall shock test system will accomplish half-sine wave impact results.
