Environmental Testing​

How do you ensure the quality and reliability of this product when it is operated for an extended period of time under varying environmental conditions. Environmental testing is the answer to this question.

Environmental testing for the equipment and sub-units is broadly subjecting to different climatic conditions like High & ultra-Low Temperature, High & low Humidity, Dry, Vibrations etc to examine the behaviour of the products especially on durability under harsh environmental conditions.

This testing will help the manufacturer to accelerate the aging process of the product to predict its life cycle analyse the modes of failure and filtering out those products that are not fit to be shipped out to the customers. In order for the testing to be carried out, equipment are needed to perform this test.

The reliability testing is one of the secret that makes a world of difference between a good product to another.

Some of the basic equipment that are needed for the testings are temperature and humidity chambers, thermal shock chambers, vibration machines. Other more specialized equipment are needed depending on the types of products that will be tested.

ATL is now equipped to simulate the recommended environmental conditions to verify the effects on products / instruments and component’s performance. Environmental conditions & Tests such as Dry Heat, Damp Heat, Cyclic Test, Composite Temperature / Humidity, Impact, Vibrations (Sinusoidal), Salt Mist, Dust, Corrosion, Low Air Pressure etc can be simulated in the lab as per different Indian and International standards & requirements like IS, IEC etc. Presently, In India. ATL is already conducting the environment test on the Electronics & Information Technology products and sub-assemblies as well as for other related products.

Basic Environmental Testing Procedures for Electronic and Electrical Items also covered. ATL is one of the environmental testing lab in India having accredited test facility of those products which covered as per Indian & International standard IS 9000, IEC 60068 – , QM 333, JSS 55555, IEC 61373, MIL – STD 810G:2014 & Ingress protection IP1X to IP8X.
