Temperature + Humidity
The temperature inside of a vehicle sitting in the baking sun with the windows rolled up can reach 80°C or -40°C in arctic conditions. We have an extensive range of thermal cycling chambers from reach-in to drive-in
The salt fog test (or salt spray test) has been used for over 70 years to measure the corrosion resistance of plated or coated metal parts.
Thermal shock testing is used to examine the effect of very rapid temperature changes on a product.
In electronic enclosures, dust causes cooling systems to clog up and reduces their effectiveness. Dust can also act as an abrasive when it gets between moving parts.
Enclosures for outdoor or marine environments are designed to keep rain or wash down water from damaging the electrical components inside. Our water exposure testing capabilities are centered on testing of enclosures to determine water tightness.
