Humidity or temperature chambers are used for climate testing, while vibration and stress chambers are typically used for mechanical testing, such as evaluating the product’s performance under shock or vibration. Vacuum or pressure variables are frequently used in stress tests.
Electronics, solar or fuel cell products, automotive products, and other products with highly stringent test requirements all use stress and vibration chambers. The objective is to test the material’s limitations beyond what is considered “normal”.
During the design phase, the Highly Accelerated Life Test, or the HALT test, identifies potential flaws and ultimately enhances the product. [Read more…] about Uses of environmental chambers
