Particular environmental conditions can significantly affect the behaviour of electrical equipment, generally reducing its capability.

Kema Labs has more than 20 climatic chambers of different sizes, from 0.3 m3 up to 31 m3, as well as two thermal chambers of 400 m3 and 750 m3 where ice tests on transformers, insulators and high voltage alternating current disconnectors can be performed.
