Dynamic Testing

The Nokia Global Product Compliance Laboratory (GPCL) offers a full complement of vibration, shock, and other dynamic tests to Commercial, Military, and International requirements in its Dynamic Test Laboratory. Dynamic Testing is necessary to ensure products will function as designed during transportation, installation, and throughout the product’s life when installed in its intended environment. Products typically evaluated include integrated circuits, circuit packs, shelves, indoor type frames and cabinets, and outdoor type cabinets.

The GPCL Dynamic Test Laboratory equipment capabilities are as follows:

  • Electrodynamic and Hydraulic Vibration Tables - Five vibration tables capable of performing Sine, Random, Synthesized Classical Shock, Random on Random, Sine on Random, and Transient Capture type tests.
  • Mechanical Shock Equipment - Two vertical drop tables controlled by universal programmers that are capable of reproducing half sine, saw tooth, and trapezoidal pulses.
  • Handling and Installation Drop Equipment - Capable of performing tests on packaged and unpackaged equipment up to 4,000 pounds.

Other capabilities include:

  • Fixture design and fabrication
  • Assistance in data analysis
  • Test plan and report generation
  • Scheduling
  • Support throughout the test program.
