  • Environmental Capabilities

GAC designs, tests, and qualifies products that are exposed to severe environmental and EMI conditions for Military, Automotive, and Industrial applications. GAC performs tests using "in-house" resources or our network of independent testing labs.

GAC routinely tests its designs for compliance to the following conditions using UL/CE/CSA safety requirements, or customer specifications:

  • Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
  • Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT)
  • Power Supply Transients
  • Electro-Static Discharge (ESD)
  • Mechanical Shock
  • Mechanical Vibration
  • Mechanical Acceleration
  • Temperature Extremes (Both Operating and Non-Operating)
  • Temperature Shock
  • Humidity
  • Water Immersion
  • Corrosive Atmosphere (Salt Fog)
  • Sand and Dust
  • Load (Resistive and Reactive)
  • Flow Bench
  • Dynamometers
  • Dynamic Signal Analyzer
  • 5 Gas Emissions Analyzer for emission regulation compliance
  • Control Loop & Circuit Simulation
