  • Smart Grid Testing

    National Technical Systems

    One of the cornerstones of NTS’ work in smart grid has been our certification program for the ZigBee Alliance. One of ZigBee’s largest and most popular application profiles is the ZigBee Smart Energy standard. NTS is the largest certifier of all ZigBee products, and has completed certification for over 85% of the Smart Energy products certified by the ZigBee Alliance. We have developed test tools to assist in the pre-certification of new devices for manufacturers, as well as validation of devices for utilities. In addition, NTS also has been selected by USNAP to perform certification testing for smart appliance manufacturers.

  • Contamination Analysis

    National Technical Systems

    Contamination Analysis, which begins with a set of basic evaluations that on most occasions will answer the “What is this?” question. The protocol contains four parts:*Visual Examination*Organic Analytical Testing by Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy*Elemental Analytical Testing by Scanning Electron Microscopy / Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (SEM/EDS)*Ionic Analytical Testing by Ion Chromatography (IC)

  • Electrical Compliance Testing

    National Technical Systems

    The NTS facilities are furnished with a wide variety of electrical test equipment to verify the operating conditions of electronic components, assemblies, and products under various types of environmental conditions. Offering a full turnkey solution for your electronic and electrical testing needs. We have the expertise to provide you the information you require whether it involves active monitoring as part of a larger test program or instead stand-alone analysis of a component, board or device. Material properties such as resistance, capacitance and inductance can be determined in addition to the electrical parameters of current and voltage.

  • Fluids And Fuel Testing

    National Technical Systems

    NTS performs a wide variety of fluid testing across a large spectrum of pressure, temperature, and rated fluid flow, as well as combined testing programs on a vast array of aerospace fluid components and systems such as process air, bleed and ram air, fuel systems, hydraulic systems, high pressure systems and cryogenic systems.

  • Pneumatic Testing

    National Technical Systems

    NTS Santa Clarita is home to our largest pneumatics test capabilities. The pneumatics test facility is designs to conduct testing of air flow, pressure and temperature management subsystems and components requiring compressed air in a controlled environment. Other environments which can be combined with pneumatic testing include; external thermal control, structural stress, and vibration.

  • Hydraulics Testing

    National Technical Systems

    Fluid power systems play a critical role in many industries, and are one of the three major forms of power transmission along with electrical and mechanical power systems. In many cases, however, mechanical and electrical methods cannot provide a practical power transmission solution. In these cases, fluid power (whether hydraulic or pneumatic) is often used because it can deliver linear and rotary motion with high force and torque within a smaller, lighter package than is possible with other forms of power transmission. Some of the most common applications of hydraulic systems are in heavy construction and off-highway equipment. Other applications can be seen in aircraft, mass transportation systems (such as trains), construction, mining, agriculture, waste reduction, and utility equipment. The various components (such as valves, actuators, cylinders, accumulators, etc.) that make up these systems must perform reliably and have a reasonable life span. Only a thorough test program carried out under simulated field use conditions can insure that any component part or assembly will meet its original design goals for performance, reliability and longevity. Many internationally recognized organizations have published test standards that apply to hydraulic/pneumatic and fluid power systems and components. Some of these organizations are:

  • Ballistic And Military Standards Testing

    National Technical Systems

    NTS has been serving the needs of the U.S. government, military, and commercial sectors for fifty years. NTS technical experts have the knowledge, experience and dedication to successfully conduct extensive evaluation and testing programs. We can provide complete turnkey solutions for MIL-STD testing and other compliance programs, helping you manage risk, improve safety and develop better products overall.

  • Chemical Testing

    National Technical Systems

    Chemical testing and analysis spans a wide variety of services, from ion chromatography to high voltage arc tracking. With the assistance of international standards for guidance, chemical testing can ensure regulatory compliance while also providing information about the chemical composition of product material.

  • Dynamics Testing

    National Technical Systems

    Motorized products must pass a series of tests to ensure readiness for mass production. The parts that comprise an automobile, for example, are submitted to dynamics test labs to endure varying degrees of pressure, noise, vibrations and other challenging forces.

  • Environmental Simulation Testing

    National Technical Systems

    What is environmental simulation testing? Simply put, simulated test environments are all about preparing products for real-world use. This is accomplished by gaining as much testing experience and performance data as early as possible during the products’ lifecycles. Simulated environmental testing usually involves creating artificial environments for test items to determine their expected resilience to their anticipated environments.

  • Failure Analysis Testing

    National Technical Systems

    When a product or device fails, you need to know why. Root cause failure analysis helps a business get to the source of a product failure. More importantly, it provides the manufacturer with the information needed to address and correct the issue causing the failure.

  • Fiber Optics Testing

    National Technical Systems

    NTS is equipped to test optical fiber, cable and active/passive components and systems. At NTS we test against a variety of specifications including Telcordia, Military, TIA/EIA, and ISO. We also perform customized test programs against specifications or test plans developed with or for our customers. Our in-house Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) can also help develop and present customized training programs to address a variety of our customer’s needs. Testing is not our only area of expertise; our Consulting Services are available to assist manufacturers in designing, troubleshooting, and delivering a quality product to market. Our goal is simple: to help our clients make the most efficient use of their products in their systems, network designs and deployments. NTS has invested heavily in optical equipment – our overall chamber capacity is one of the largest in North America. We have recently tripled our switch capacity by adding new high channel count JDS and EXFO switches which allows us to run multiple single mode and multi-mode programs simultaneously. Our lab is outfitted to make spectral measurements using tunable lasers, OSAs, white light sources and monochromator based systems.

  • Hardware and Software Testing
