For the peace of mind and reassurance of our customers, Autoadapt performs product tests as a means of achieving maximum safety. These include the following:
The product is subjected to a traction force for a given period of time. The results of the test are used to select a design or a material.
The product is accelerated to a speed of 50 km/h before being brought to an immediate and complete stop. This form of testing is performed in order to ensure that the design is safe.
Life cycle test
The product is loaded to its maximum capacity plus an additional twenty per cent. The purpose is to simulate everyday use as closely as possible: in other words, to perform a complete lifetime cycle. The product must withstand at least 10,000 cycles.
The product is exposed to vibration for a given period of time. Vibration testing is performed to ensure that the design and fixings are safe.
The product undergoes operational testing at temperatures ranging from -20 to +60 degrees Celsius in order to ensure its performance under these weather conditions.
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
The product’s electronics are tested to ensure that they do not interfere with the other electronics in the vehicle.
In order for a product to be granted a CE label, a number of risk analyses must be performed for each product, which must also be accompanied by descriptive documentation in line with the selected directive. Autoadapt has chosen to certify products under the EU directive on medical devices for CE labelling.
