Life Cycle Testing Sample Applications
SEAT BELT CERTIFICATION TESTING
Dayton T. Brown, Inc. performs certification testing on automotive safety
restraint systems to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 209, Federal Motor
Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213 and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 209
These include Seat Belt Retractor, Seat Belt Assembly and Webbing
Testing. Retractor testing includes Retraction Force, Acceleration Performance and
Life Cycle tests.
Assembly testing comprises of Pelvic Loop Load and Elongation,
Torso Loop Load and Elongation and Buckle Strength Tests. The Webbing testing involves
Strength, Elongation, Abrasion and Ultraviolet Light Exposure.
Electrical components that DTB conducts many types of accelerated
life tests on each year include environmental stress screening tests on electrical
circuit boards, aircraft radio receivers and other electrical equipment.
DTB can provide a wide variety of power sources, high current levels, large wattage load
banks and cooling supplies to operate items under test.

DTB has a long history of service to the plumbing industry. We are one of only a handful of
Independent Test Labs certified to the CSA (Canadian Standards Association) for plumbing
fixtures and components as well as the IAPMO in the US for multiple tests.
We have dedicated facilities that provide automated life cycle testing under real world conditions.
When reliability and product image count for your company, you can count on DTB to design a test
that will deliver the results that you expect.
Commercial and residential applications, as well as
industrial components, all require their own unique levels of reliability and performance.
Whether its ambient cycling, pressure or water hammer tests, or even temperature affects
that you need to evaluate, we have the expertise to assist you with a test design that is appropriate
AIR BAG SENSORS
DTB uses our large facilities and the 24/7 operation of the laboratory to provide DV and PV testing
in the shortest amount of time possible.
Using our high powered vibration facilities we are able to
vibrate 12 to 24 driver or passenger airbags, at the desired environment. These vibration facilities also
handle 4 to 8 full IPs at a time.
Our drive-in environmental chambers are used to test entire lot samples
at one time, further reducing testing time. We use our Solar Radiation array of lights to test the
materials of these IPs to provide ample confidence of proper deployment in the vehicle,
simulating many years of service.
