Experience our Laboratory

Equipped with the latest generation equipment, including a large semi-anechoic chamber, the laboratory embodies our constant search for product improvement. We perform a wide range of tests during the product prototyping stage to validate if our proposed solution meets our reliability standards or if we must continue exploring. The laboratory also works with quality control as we test samples taken from production lines. Below is an outline of the many tests that we perform.

 

Optical Measurements

Measuring the optical characteristics of the panels to determine the readability of the information displayed. Tests include:

  • Color
  • Brightness
  • Viewing Angle
  • Luminance Ratio
  • Luminous Intensity Uniformity

Environmental and Mechanical Measures

Conducting environmental testing certifies the ability of the device to withstand adverse environment conditions. Certain tests will also verify the mechanical strength. They include:

  • Dry Heat
  • Damp Heat Cycling
  • Change of Temperature
  • Cold
  • Solar Radiation
  • Impact Test
  • Water Penetration Test
  • Dust Penetration Test

Electromagnetic Compatibility

Many electronics transmit and receive electromagnetic waves that may impact normal operation of that device or surrounding devices. To eliminate or reduce this interference to an acceptable level and to ensure proper operation, the verification of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) has become a prerequisite for the sale of electronic devices in many countries around the world. The tests detect both electromagnetic energy emission and immunity.

Electrical Measurements

Electrical safety standards define the requirements that all electrical equipment must meet to protect the user and prevent damage to the device. Causes of risk include direct electrical contact, indirect electrical contact, current overload, short-circuits, and power surges. The tests simulate phenomena that can be observed in low voltage power distribution systems, telecommunication lines, or data lines. They ensure that the device continues to function after being exposed to artificially generated transient noise. The regulations provide different acceptable levels for each product type being tested. The tests include:

  • Electrostatic Discharge
  • Voltage Interruption
  • Dielectric Strength
  • Touch Current
  • Insulation
  • Protective Earth Continuity
