State-of-the-art metrology and climate testing equipment

Like the largest metrology and testing laboratories in the world, Ater Métrologie has state-of-the-art equipment for performing thermal tests and measurements on any type of product, material or equipment, and advanced technology software.

Thermostatic and climatic test chambers

The laboratory is equipped with :

  • 12 programmable thermostatic and climatic test chambers. They have a capacity of 1 to 16m3 in useful volume. They can generate temperatures between -80°C and +50°C.
  • 1 climatic chamber of 170 m3 equipped with a gas extractor in order to test vehicles with running engines. This chamber can simulate temperature profiles between -5°C and +50°C and regulate the humidity level.
  • 4 stabilisation chambers.


All the laboratory’s measuring equipment is connected to national standards via a Cofrac-certified laboratory, a guarantee of the accuracy and reproducibility of the thermal test results.

Temperature range :

-80°C to +50°C

Payload :

1 to 170 m3

Humidity :

According to temperature

Wavelength metere

The wavelength meter measures the coefficient of thermal conductivity to find out the ability of the material to conduct heat.

Test temperature range :

-10 °C/+75 °C

Measured coefficient range :

0,005 / 0,35 W/m.K

Maximum sample size :

300 x 300 x 100 mm

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)

This machine carries out calorimetric studies of phase-change materials. It evaluates energy phenomena related to the change in temperature of the material so as to study its thermal properties.

Temperature range :

from – 70 °C to + 600 °C

Enthalpy accuracy :

< 1 %

Resolution :

0.25 Μv

Types of products tested:

Phase-change materials, polymers.
