Testing and Certification Institute
We work closely with VDE in areas such as EMC (Electro-Magnetic Compatibility) testing . VDE (The German Electro-Technology, Electronics and Information Technology Association) also owns comprehensive lab facilities that can be used to test parts of any size – or even entire vehicles. Together, we can homologate any type of vehicle for you, arranging for VDE to test both EMC (e.g. ECE-R 10) and electrical safety (ECE-R 100). The remaining tests on the entire vehicle will be performed by GTÜ staff themselves, after which you will receive an overall assessment for your (electric) vehicle.
In addition to testing the EMC and electrical safety of your vehicles, VDE can also test their lithium-ion batteries. These tests focus on both safety and fatigue strength, i.e. the movement-induced load that the battery can withstand without showing notable signs of failure. The test benches are large enough to support car batteries up to 400 kg in weight, including their fixture materials.
