Test Benches

Photo test R&D

Throughout the all product life, éolane's R&D can develop the testing resources associated with specific customer needs:

  • In Design, through the development of simulation benches
  • In Qualification, through the development of benches adapted to the qualification tests of a product
  • In Production, through the development of test benches suitable for éolane plants
  • In after-sales service, through the development of troubleshooting test benches
  • In MCO, through the development of operational control benches

Skills R&D tests

  • From existing solutions or specific development, the 200 R&D engineers will adapt to customer needs.
  • The R&D testing skills cover the entire R&D scope of éolane:
  • Its experience allows the windane group to design simple or complex benches.
  • Partnership with National Instruments
