SGS’s battery environmental testing services – including simulation and reliability tests – enable you to convince customers about the quality and reliability of your product.

Consumers expect a traction battery to work reliably in challenging automotive environmental conditions – like any other electrical unit does. For electric and electronic equipment in road vehicles, ISO 16750 standardises the environmental conditions and tests. Car manufacturers refine this basic requirement to generate their own specifications.

Our automotive testing services are experienced and familiar with these tests. We can test the performance of cells, modules and packs up to 500kg under the following environmental stresses:

  • Vibration
  • Mechanical Shock (up to 50g)
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Salt Fog
  • Dust, solid and liquid intrusion (IP-Protection)
  • Mixed Flowing Gas
  • Chemical exposure
  • Water jet, salt water immersion
  • Thermal Shock Cycling

Characterisation and performance testing is done both during and after the environmental simulation.

Trust our expertise in automotive testing to deliver a tailor made testing programme that meets your requirements. Contact your local SGS office for more information.
