Stress Testing In Any Environment

Since 1973, Elite has been providing comprehensive environmental stress testing services to complement our extensive EMC test capabilities. Having access to both services under one roof translates into a convenient, time saving, and highly efficient validation program.

With our extensive array of equipment ready to simulate vibration, shock, temperature, and humidity environments, Elite has the right stuff and available space for your project’s success. We also provide capabilities to replicate numerous specialty environments ranging from water spray and dust to solar radiation and explosive atmospheres.

For large projects, Elite can conduct environmental stress tests in parallel with EMC testing or other environmental tests in order to compress testing time and complete the work in a much shorter period.
