Testing & Inspections

CMS has flammability testing capabilities on-site. This critical test and analysis verifies your assembly or material will not provide a source for combustion and fire.

CMS can perform Power Input Testing for aerospace and various other related applications. The power input tests simulate conditions of aircraft power from before engine start to after landing, including emergencies.

The CMS lab can perform Voltage Spike Testing for your specific equipment. This test determines whether equipment can withstand the effects of a voltage spike arriving at the equipment on its power leads, either AC or DC.

This test determines the magnetic effect of the equipment and is mainly intended for finding or proving the closest distance to compasses or compass sensors (flux gates) at which that unit is allowed to be installed. 

The electrostatic discharge test is designed to determine the immunity or the ability of equipment to perform its intended function without permanent degradation of performance as a result of an air discharged electrostatic pulse.

CMS performs a wide range of temperature testing to determine the effects of temperature on specific equipment as well as condensation that can form as the result of cold temperatures.

These tests exercise the assembly’s capability of surviving extreme temperature changes and the effects of differing coefficients of thermal expansion.

CMS can perform humidity tests that check the effects of high concentrations of humidity and the equipment’s ability to withstand moisture effects. 

This type of test determines the effects of mechanical shock on the performance of equipment. This line of testing also determines likelihood of equipment becoming a projectile in the event of a crash.

CMS can perform vibration testing to meet a broad range of aviation and non-aviation specifications, including IEC, MIL-STD, DO-160, SAE, NEBS, ASTM, ISTA, and others.

With an Electromagnetic Reverberation Chamber on-site, CMS can perform a range of related RF Emissions testing
