Services

The Liebherr Electronics Test Center at the Lindau site

The Liebherr Electronics Test Center at the Lindau site

Liebherr's in-house competence centre for electronics in Lindau (Germany) offers its customers a comprehensive portfolio of services - from development to production and qualification.

An overview of our services

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) tests are executed for you at the Liebherr test center according to the following standards (among others):
RTCA/DO-160, MIL-STD, CISPR 16 and CISPR 25, DIN EN 61000

  • Resistance to interference from radiated emissions: 30MHz to 18GHz; up to 200V/m (from 100MHz continuous)
  • Resistance to interference from conducted emissions: 10kHz to 400MHz; up to 300mA
  • Radiated emissions: 9kHz to 18GHz
  • Conducted emissions: 10kHz to 200MHz

The constantly rising demands on the mechanical reliability of electronics equipment necessitate comprehensive vibration and shock tests. In the Liebherr test laboratory there are two electrodynamic vibration testing systems available for this purpose, which can be used not only for development purposes but also for qualification.

Test portfolio:

  • Random / sine / shock
  • Resonance dwell
  • Combined tests (Sine on Random noise, multiple sine)
  • Temperature cycling
  • 55kN shaker plant
    With optional temperature cycling and maximum 3in Pk-Pk oscillation, we cover a broad portfolio of tests with this facility.
