Seismic tests of non-structural elements such as low voltage panels and server cabinets are performed in compliance with national and international standards as accredited with 6-axis shaker table (MAST) with high accuracy and repeatability in our laboratory.
Academic studies and R&D projects up to a weight capacity of 10 tons are supported with our 2-axis shaker table (biaxial table), especially the tests of structural elements.
Moreover, tests are performed in our laboratory according to the criteria determined by the customer's special specifications.
Tests referring to the test standards:
EN IEC 60068-3-3 & TS EN 60068-2-57: Environmental testing - Part 3-3: Supporting documentation and guidance - Seismic test methods for equipment & Environmental testing - Part 2-57: Tests - Test Ff: Vibration - Time-history and sine-beat method
The test standards for seismic testing of electromechanical equipment. Within the scope of the tests, the test sample is subjected to structural and functional controls
EN 61587-2 & GR-63-CORE: Mechanical structures for electronic equipment - Tests for IEC 60917 and IEC 60297 - Part 2: Seismic tests for cabinets and racks & Network Equipment - Building System requirements: Physical Protection
The test standard for seismic testing of server cabinets and telecommunication equipment. Within the scope of the test, the test sample is subjected to structural and functional controls.
ICC-ES AC156: Acceptance Criteria for Seismic Certification by Shake-Table Testing Of Nonstructural Components
It is a US origin test standard for seismic testing of non-structural elements.
IEEE 693: Recommended Practice for Seismic Design of Substations
It is the seismic certification standard for substation elements. Neutral grounding resistors, transformer elements, etc. products and structures are tested with this standard.
IEC 62271-210: High-voltage switchgear and control gear - Part 210: Seismic qualification for metal enclosed and solid-insulation enclosed switchgear and control gear assemblies for rated voltages above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV
It is a seismic test standard for 1kV-52kV switchgear and control gears.
IEEE/IEC 60980-344: Nuclear facilities - Equipment important to safety - Seismic qualification
It is a seismic test standard for electrical, mechanical, instrumentation, control equipment and parts in nuclear facilities.
EN 60068-2-6: Environmental testing - Part 2-6: Tests - Test Fc: Vibration (sinusoidal)
In general, the test standard that includes tests for response and endurance to vibration that may occur during the transportation and use of equipment.
EN 60255-21-1& TS EN 60255-21-2 & TS EN 60255-21-3: Electrical relays - Part 21: Vibration, shock, bump and seismic tests on measuring relays and protection equipment
Vibration, mechanical impact, bump and seismic tests are the standards describing the features and tests for measuring relays and protective equipment
Desired data in academic studies can be realized and reproducibility requirements can be met in a controlled environment with hydraulic shaker tables with high capacity and accuracy. Acceleration, displacement, strain etc. such measurements can be collected through the data acquisition system and solutions for technical needs can be offered with competent test personnel.
Tests Performed by Customer Request
R&D testing service is also provided for special conditions where technical specifications are requested from customers or for the studies that the customer wants to do in order to improve their products. The test flow, technical needs, desired outputs, test data profile, etc. are determined aligned with customer needs.
