Thermotron - Model ATSS - Automated Thermal Stress System
Thermotron’s Automated Thermal Stress Systems (ATSS) facilitate rapid product temperature change rates in a space-saving, self-contained design that accelerate Thermal Stress tests. Thermotron’s ATSS test chambers meet the latest MIL-STD 883E and MIL-STD 202F thermal shock specifications as well as JEDEC and IPC test methods. ATSS chambers are capable of the following: rapid thermal shock, accelerated product stress tests, and controlled thermal cycling.
With separate hot and cold zones, the Automated Thermal Stress System has a patented, retractable product transfer carrier basket that makes full use of the available workspace in both temperature zones for increased product loading and throughput. The product transfer carrier basket reduces the overall height requirements of the chamber and is made as light as possible to minimize thermal loading restraints. Thermotron ATSS chambers can be used as part of most thermal cycling reliability and quality control programs.
Thermal cycle testing can help determine:
- If the product will safety operate after sudden and dramatic temperature changes
- The life expectancy of a product by revealing its aging properties
- With environmental stress screening (ESS) applications
