The avionics, as most of high-tech markets, requires a high level research in order to develop and improve new products.
The design step is often combined with FEM analysis which require experimental confirmations to be validated; one standard validation method of the dynamic analysis is the vibration test
Avionics products must comply with national and international standards of their own market which also prescribe environmental tests. On one hand, these test have the purpose to verify the functioning of the devices in environmental conditions which simulate the real conditions of use; on the other hand the tests aim at accelerating the aging process of the test items to verify if its functioning conditions are unvaried at the end of its life.
Centrotecnica can boast of a 30 year experience in environmental testing for the avionics sector, for products like board instrumentation, tubes, refrigerant devices, courtesy systems for aircrafts and helicopters.
- ISO_7137 Aircraft – environmental conditions and test procedures for airborne equipment
- MIL-STD-810 Military Standard – Environmental test methods and engineering guidelines
- RTCA DO-160 Environmental conditions and test procedures for airborne equipment
In addition to testing activity, Centrotecnica offers a wide range of ancillary products and services to those companies which have in-house testing capability.
Standard fixtures used in order to modify (by widening, increasing in height, inclining) the useful dimension of the armature to allow three axis testing mounting.
Special customized fixtures which are designed and manufactured according to customer’s specific item mounting requirements.
A complete range of slip tables to meet with customers’ specific requirements in the field of horizontal axis testing.
