Gen3 Systems Limited, a specialist British manufacturer and distributor, has installed a second chamber due to the increase in demand for its Surface Insulation Resistance (SIR) and Conductive Anodic Filament Monitoring (CAF) test services. The new Temperature (& Humidity) Chamber (Platinous J Series) takes Gen3’s in-house testing facility to the next level.
Quality assurance is extremely critical to the electronics manufacturing industry. During transportation or at the site of the end-user, electronics will see varying climates. With the temperature chamber, Gen3 can help manufacturers to determine if a product can withstand the rigors during its normal life span.
The temperature chamber tests the effects of extreme temperature changes as well as moisture or relative humidity on industrial products, materials, and electronic devices and components. The ability to test for temperature and humidity changes in-house allows Gen3 to even better serve its customers with tight manufacturing lead times.
The J Series Temperature Chamber has a working temperature range from -20 to +100°C (+150/180°C) and a humidity range from 20 to 98 percent rh. It can be used as a stand-alone test for environmental effects on test specimens, as preparation of test specimens for further physical tests or chemical tests, and as environmental conditions for conducting testing of specimens.
With the J Series Temperature Chamber’s new PID control of refrigeration capacity, the Smart Refrigerator & Dehumidifier System can control minutely both heating and cooling at minimal levels, thanks to the new N-instrumentation embedded in the chamber. An Ethernet (LAN) port is equipped as standard for simple connection to PC, Smartphone, Tablet, or other terminals. Monitoring chamber status, modification of test conditions, on-off operation, and other interaction with the chamber can be performed via web browser. The remote communication area can be expanded by connection to an intranet.
