Will testing be invoiced?

In general, testing is based on a business case and will not be invoiced.

Are the laboratories certified?

Each ADC is equipped with state-of-the-art test facilities that meet all general test standards. These include testing standards such as:

  • American standards: AHRI 210/240, AHRI1230, EN13215, AHRI 340/360, AHRI 550/590, and AHRI 810
  • European standards: EN14511, EN14825, EN16147, EN13771, EN23953, and EN16825
  • On request, we can perform tests according to ISO and regional standards

Our ADC based in Oragadam, India is a recognized Intertek Satellite Laboratory and is therefore an ISO17025 Accredited Laboratory.

We also do our best to fulfill any special testing requirements that you might have. Please contact your local sales representative to discuss any specific conditions.

Can I participate in testing?

With a signed agreement in place, any customer is welcome to participate in the testing of their own units. We will organize your visit to ensure the confidentiality of your testing.

Can testing be watched in real time?

In order to ensure the highest level of data security, real-time observations are not possible. Instead, we compile and deliver data sets on an ongoing basis for your review. You can then discuss the results online with a Danfoss representative.
