Our testing areas

The testing laboratory of Westenergie Netzservice GmbH, Eurotest, is an independent testing laboratory that achieves international standards. The accreditation by the German Accreditation Service (DAkkS) ensures to our customers that our processes will be performed professionally and in compliance with legal and normative requirements at an internationally comparable level.
Our DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025-accredited and DIN EN ISO 9001-certified testing laboratory (DAkkS Registration No. D-PL-21876-01-00, Certificate Registration No. 44 100 130408-001)  is available to manufacturers and users alike for testing the conformity to standards and usability of electrical engineering products. 
Operating for more than 50 years as a test facility for power supply companies, Eurotest specializes in testing of electrical components:

High-voltage equipment and installations 
Low-voltage equipment and installations
EMC testing
Crimp and screw connectors
Cables and lines
Three-phase electric power cable fittings
Insulating materials (oil analyses)

Additionally, our existing facilities and multitude of testing equipment offer many other testing opportunities. You are welcome to ask for them.

EMC laboratory

Electromagnetic compatibility of devices and components

Eurotest carries out EMC tests in the following areas:  

  • Measurement of electrical, magnetic and electromagnetic fields in industrial and residential areas

Chemistry laboratory

In electrical equipment such as transformers and converters, oils serve as insulating material and coolant. Thermal or electrical faults in this equipment can be diagnosed early by gas-in-oil testing. The aging degree of the insulating oil is also recorded by regular tests. Eurotest tests the insulating oils and then evaluates the results.
