Danfoss Editron (www.danfoss.com/en
) has opened a new in-house testing laboratory in Lappeenranta (the Finnish city where it is headquartered), after a multi-million-euro investment.
This facility will conduct electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC) and environmental tests designed to guarantee the quality of the company’s Editron systems; it will allow them to be tested at an earlier stage of the manufacturing process than was previously possible, so the company will be able to identify problems earlier, when they are easier to fix.
The laboratory has dedicated EMC and environmental testing chambers, which can perform radiative immunity, radiative emissions and electrostatic discharge tests, automotive immunity checks, magnetic field immunity assessments and conductive emissions assessments — to both international and European standards.
The facility also contains ‘electronic loads and a high-power direct-current power source’, plus dust-test, salt-mist, climatic-test and walk-in chambers.
Tero Järveläinen, Danfoss Editron’s research and development director, said: “Having in-house testing facilities will enhance our product quality and support our business growth targets to achieve a turnover in the hundreds of millions of euros.”
