Accelerated Stress Testing (AST) Services
Accelerated Stress Testing simulates “real-life” conditions to provide necessary evaluation data that helps ensure a product’s life and reliability. Accelerated Stress Testing (AST) can save both time and money in various applications without making the setup and test execution complex.
Our AST equipment accurately simulates real-world conditions, including:
- simultaneous application of 6 axis (degrees of freedom) random vibration or single axis random and/or sinusoidal vibration up to 25,000 lbs,
- extreme thermal cycling with humidity, and numerous possible other stresses such as voltage, electrical/mechanical loading, and contaminants.
For HALT/HASS testing of electronics or other PCB-based electromechanical products, we offer two air hammer tables that use an LN2 cooling system, a frequency range of 20 to 3,500 Hz and a vibration energy range of 3gRMS to 60gRMS.
Intertek is a world-leading testing lab that can provide a broad range of Accelerated Stress Testing (AST) Services. We will work with you to uncover design defects or weaknesses that may not have been realized during product design.
