CTC advanced GmbH, based in Saarbrücken / Saarland with currently more than 180 employees, is an internationally operating and independent test laboratory for products from almost all industries – from A for the automotive industry to Z for ZigBee applications. Regulatory tests and certifications according to international specifications or industry-specific regimes are offered in the areas of electromagnetic compatibility, radio, environmental simulation, electrical safety, acoustics, medical device testing, battery tests, payment & identification.

For the automotive industry, product reliability and risk management are playing an important role. CTC advanced GmbH is aware of this responsibility and supports customers by:

– EMC tests and electrical safety tests

– Environmental simulation tests

– Safety tests of high-performance li-ion batteries

– Radio tests in all frequency ranges – from distance radar to “connected car” applications

– Implementation of customer-specific requirements

In addition to comprehensive EMC and radio tests, the services in the automotive sector are particularly geared towards vehicle sub-assemblies. They comply with regulatory requirements or are tailored to the individual requirements of the automotive industry.

CTC advanced GmbH is designated as a technical service by the Kraftfahrtbundesamt (KBA) and the Luxembourg SNCH (Société Nationale de Certification et d’Homologation) for carrying out EMC tests on products in the automotive industry and prepares the technical report for type approval.

In 2019, CTC advanced GmbH built a large test hall, in which environmental simulation and battery tests (e.g. abuse tests and UNTT 38.3), as well as electrical safety tests, are fully combined. Special shakers that deliver forces of up to 300 kN enable CTC advanced to serve their customers even more comprehensively.

CTC advanced has further expanded its testing capabilities for the automotive industry with a test facility for abuse tests on large batteries which is virtually unique in Europe.

By using an external property with connection to the infrastructure of a vehicle driving test site, CTC advanced is able to carry out tests, which can only be realized in an almost explosion-proof surrounding.

A significant advantage of the new facility is the possibility of testing particularly large batteries with dimensions of up to 240 x 180 cm and a total mass of up to 1.000 kg.

This test facility is intended in particular for the following test cases:

– Propagation

– Short circuit

– Crush test

Other customer-specific tests can also be carried out on request!

CTC advanced GmbH provides qualified and reliable support for you and your product from the development phase to market launch.
