That’s a big earthquake!

Our earthquake table is used to create fake earthquakes up to 8.3 on the Richter Scale. That’s a big earthquake! Most of what we test is equipment that controls your telephone and internet services, so in an emergency, your phones will always be available for an emergency phone call. We run the test to make sure the equipment doesn’t move more than 3 inches in any direction and to make sure nothing goes flying off the product. It also needs to keep working at the end of the test. Remember, if you are ever in an earthquake drop to your knees, take cover under a table or desk and stay far away from large furniture that could topple over!
