HARTING Corporate Technology Services (CTS) is a test laboratory that is accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 and is one more building block in the HARTING Technology Group’s understanding of quality.  Exhaustive and careful testing of electromechanical, electronic and optical connection, transmission and network technology guarantees the high HARTING standard customers have come to expect.

Optical and tactile 3D coordinate measurement technology is available for the dimensional measurement of components.

Component tests comprise electrical and mechanical tests, vibration and shock tests and  microscopic testing in conjunction with the climatic and environment impact in order to ensure environmental compatibility and IP protection class. In addition, CTS employees support the design department by analyzing the signal integrity of electronic and fiber-optic transmission systems. Hardness measurements using a nanoindenter as input parameter in the computer simulations help to ensure reliability as early as at the development stage.

Material analysis, topography and roughness (optical/tactile) testing are used to evaluate microsystems. X-ray fluorescence analysis via a semi-conductor detector is used to ensure RoHS conformity during qualification testing. As established parts of electromagnetic compatibility, EMS and EMI testing are particularly important for the award of the CE symbol (German Electromagnetic Compatibility Act).
