Qualification

The SKEDD system is new on the market. Accordingly, not all its conceivable limits have yet been fully explored. Up to now, qualification of the system has been based on the applicable automotive standards. The requirements embedded in these, such as with respect to tolerance of industrial gases, vibration resistance, etc. are so high that suitability is already assured for many other sectors.

SKEDD technology has been verified and validated in cooperation with SGS Germany GmbH CQE, an independent testing and laboratory services company accredited by the German national accreditation body DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH).

The following tests have been successfully passed among others:

  • IEC 60068-2-60: 1995-12
    Environmental tests: Flowing mixed gas corrosion test
  • IEC 60068-2-2: 2007-07
    Environmental tests: Dry heat
  • IEC 60068-2-6, -2-27, -2-57
    Shock and vibration
  • IEC 60512-2-1: 2002-02
    Connectors for electronic equipment
    Electrical continuity and contact resistance tests; test 2a: Millivolt level method
  • IEC 60068-2-14: 2009-01
    Environmental tests: Change of temperature  
  • IEC 60068-2-30: 2005-08
    Environmental tests: Damp heat, cyclic (12+12-hour cycle)
