Mechanical Transport Test Service
As a part of environmental testing Beyond Gravity offers to perform also a transport test. These tests are used to simulate typical handling errors in the loading and unloading process of cargo.
For transport tests with large test samples a crane which is mounted to the ceiling is used. With this crane the drop height can be set up to 3 meters. The free fall is caused by an electromagnetic clasp and therefore is secure and standardised. Following surfaces can be used:
- Concrete -Sand/gravel
The following tests methods are accredited in the Beyond Gravity Center:
- MIL-STD-810 Meth. 516
- V009 100 Richtlinie USP der GR Prüfung Nr. 303
- ISTA 2A
- ISTA 2B
- UN-Standard (Transport of dangerous goods)
Mass max. [kg]: 500.0
Data acquisition: LMS SCADAS III (52 +48 Channels) and LMS SCADAS Mobile (24 Channels)
Project heritage: This facility is used for the test of space equipment as well as of other highly sensitive industrial products and prototypes.
