only the strong survive
Before a new signalling device goes into series production, it must undergo and pass numerous complex measuring procedures.
During the measuring procedures, the new product from Auer Signal must demonstrate what our development engineers promised during digital prototyping.
Visual measuring procedures
The luminous intensity and the luminance distribution are measured from different viewing angles using a photogoniometer. This test demonstrates the light distribution and luminous intensity of our beacons.
Audible measuring procedures
All audible signalling equipment is tested in our own measuring rooms. We can create perfect free field conditions in these measuring rooms. This enables us to measure the sound pressure of our audible signalling equipment precisely. Along with the sound pressure, the
frequency response is also extremely important. It describes the sound pressure at a certain frequency. This information helps to select the right audible signalling equipment for the relevant application.
Mechanical test procedures
The behaviour of the materials and the signalling equipment is put to the test in various mechanical tests. During what is known as conditioning, the product is subjected to extreme loads: Depending on the specification, the signalling equipment must be impact-resistant, water-tight and dust-proof. If required, signalling equipment from Auer Signal must withstand extreme cold, heat and temperature fluctuations.
