These various tests include sensor tests, actuator tests, PLC test, touch panel tests, gas analyzer tests, connectivity tests, input and output tests, control loop tests, communication interface tests, alarm tests, and software testing.

For measuring instruments and gas analyzers, a calibration of the devices is perform to confirm the details in accordance with the technical specifications of the instruments.
