Ektos relocates to Sound Hub Denmark
September 11, 2018
More options in accredited testing
The new test lab is expected to be part of the EKTOS TRS current accrediting in the near future. EMC tests and advanced HALT tests will be in focus as key services offered.
”At the moment we have a very small number of accredited test labs. With our facilities we can offer EMC tests, mechanical tests, climatic tests for electronics companies in the vicinity. It also increases our flexibility for our existing customers, as we can carry out simultaneous tests in two different locations, explains Kennet Palm, Managing Director of EKTOS TRS.
Cooperation with Sound Hub Denmark
EKTOS will join forces with Sound Hub Denmark in strengthening the innovation environment in the international cluster of experts in sound design and technology.
”We look forward to cooperate with the innovative and creative companies in Sound Hub Denmark. If they need to carry out a test, they can just come to EKTOS and in this way we can help them reach their targets faster. Also, we can use their knowledge in sound and acoustics, something which will strengthen our competences both in terms of offering development and test services, explains Kennet Palm.
Niels Martin Jørgensen, Group Manager of EKTOS, adds:”We have had great experiences working with start-ups and smaller companies. As the EKTOS group works in all phases of the development of electronics – from specifications, development, prototyping, test and certification, we can contribute with guidance and services throughout the entire process. We think it is really interesting to work with start-ups as they constantly challenge status quo, and apply the latest technologies.”
CEO of Sound Hub Denmark, Peter Petersen, comments: ”EKTOS TRS takes over the part of the former Bang & Olufsen lab that does not deal with sound and acoustics specifically. In the labs they carry out certified EMC tests, mechanical and climatic tests, and requirements that have to be met by all products. The agreement means that Sound Hub Denmark can focus entirely on Sound. EKTOS TRS will not just run the labs, but also upgrade and develop them. Our users will benefit from the immediate access to these laboratories. However, EKTOS is more than testing – we also get a competent development partner in the house, which I’m sure our users will benefit from.
