Europe environmental simulation laboratory needed with climatic chamber big enough to test pantograph for train according to EN50206-1 (According to EN 50206-1:1998, clause 6.3.3 [3]). Dimensions of pantograph are cca 3,5 x 1,3 x 1 m in a still state, but during the functional test pantograph has to go to the highest position which is cca 3,1m (so in still state is high 1 m and in high end state is high 3,1 m).

Do you have climatic chamber of these dimensions? We need equipment to be min 6 hours on -25 Celsius and min 6 hours on +40 Celsius. Functional test is performing during both tests. If you can offer this can you provide me with quotation ASAP.
