Environmental and climatic tests evaluate the behaviour of materials, components and equipment in normal or extreme weather conditions.
Over the course of their useful life, materials, components and equipment are subjected to multiple environmental conditions that may affect their reliability, behaviour and structural integrity. Manufacturers may need to evaluate the behaviour of their products under different conditions in order to meet both market requirements and applicable regulations. In any case, the increasing technical complexity of electrical and electronic devices implies a greater need to ensure functional performance and reliability.
