Temperature can have many different effects on a product. Components within a circuit will each have a working temperature range; once this is exceeded the electrical properties change and the circuit can become unstable, or cease to function at all. Materials can also deteriorate over time, ageing prematurely due to either high or low temperature extremes.
Humid conditions lead to condensation which can be damaging to circuitry and aggravate corrosion in dissimilar metals. Simulation of such conditions provides confidence that your product is not unduly affected.
An extensive range of requirements for Climatic Testing can be met using our wide variety of environmental test chambers. We are able to offer temperatures ranging from -70°C to +150°C for both endurance and cyclic testing.
Humidity or damp heat conditions can be achieved over the range of 25% to 98% Relative Humidity (RH).
Combined temperature, humidity and vibration conditions can be achieved using our combination facility.
Access is available to allow powering and functional testing of your product on all chambers, and where required, additional thermocouples and data-logging facilities can be provided.
Larger items can be accommodated in walk-in temperature chambers. Additionally, thermal shock is available over the range of -70°C to +150°C, using a rapid transfer twin compartment chamber. This is a fully automated facility allowing 24 hour testing to be carried out.
Rapid thermal cycling up to 20°C per minute is available using our Tiger 20 Chamber or HALT facility.
