Simulate any environment to test durability on your schedule

Since 1973, Elite has provided comprehensive Environmental Stress Testing to complement our extensive EMI/EMC Testing and other product testing capabilities. Access to complete testing services in one location translates to convenient, time-efficient, and highly-effective validation programs.

Our Environmental Stress Testing services include the simulation of vibration, shock, temperature, and humidity environments. Elite has advanced equipment, and available space to test your projects for success. These simulations allow specialty environmental situations ranging from water spray and dust to solar radiation and explosive atmospheric environment.

For the larger projects, Elite can conduct Environmental Stress Testing concurrently with EMI/EMC Testing to accelerate testing programs and complete product validation on your schedule.
