Test products can be evaluated for functionality during or after extreme exposure through thermal cycling. Typical observable adverse effects include warping, discoloration or texture change.
Thermal Cycling and Heat Aging Capabilities
From steady-state thermal conditioning to complex thermal and humidity cycling, ATS has the capacity to perform thermal testing with more than 10 different chamber sizes, from smaller chambers (internal dimensions: 2ft x 2ft x 2ft) up to large walk- in chambers (internal dimensions: 12ft x 10ft x 11ft).
Temperature ranges on most chambers span from -65°C up to +160°C with relative humidity from 5% to 95% (non-condensing). ATS’ chambers can achieve ramp rates of 6°C/minute and are all equipped with digital data logging.
