Environment Simulation Testing

Simulate years of real world use in days using an environmental chamber

Environmental Chamber for accelerated reliability life testingWith Electronics Yorkshire’s environment simulation chamber, products can be tested under working conditions to prove that they can withstand the temperatures and humidity of their operating environment. Product can also be stressed, or 'age tested', to extremes on a cycle over hours, weeks or months to prove long-term reliability.

A portal in the chamber enables a product under test to be powered and electronic measurements made over a period of time without having to stop the programme. Because tests concentrate on the durability of materials and substances, malfunctions can be detected at an early stage in the development phase of a product, and thus eliminated.

Companies can carry out accelerated life-cycle testing, stress testing and product reliability testing at Electronics Yorkshire at a fraction of the cost of purchasing their own chamber. This equipment is particularly useful in verifying that a CE mark is still valid against any changes to environmental conditions.

Environment simulation testing equipment description and specification

Votsch VC7018 Environmental Simulation Chamber.

The chamber provides a cyclic, single incremental measurement programme of testing from -70°C to +180°C with humidity from 10% to 98% above 10°C.

Interior dimensions are 580mm x 450mm x 750mm.

Temperature rate of change - heating is 4°C/minute.

Tempertature rate of change - cooling is 3°C/minute.

Environment simulation testing equipment hire

Customers can use the equipment themselves at our Leeds facility. Time on the equipment can be hired by the hour, day, week or the month and will include training on the use of the equipment where required. 


Environment simulation testing investigation services

Alternatively, samples can be sent to the Electronics Yorkshire Technology Centre along with a clear description of the problem and the investigation needed, and our trained and skilled team will conduct the investigation on your behalf. If there is any uncertainty or if unexpected issues are discovered then the team will involve you by phone. Once the investigation is complete a report will be prepared, which will be sent to you with the returned sample.


Hiring equipment

Call us for a personalised quotation for either time on our equipment or our investigation and report services. Discounts can also be offered for block bookings of equipment time or investigation services.

To arrange to hire equipment at Electronics Yorkshire, call 0113 274 4270 or email: info@electronicsyorkshire.org.uk; if you require Electronics Yorkshire to carry out work please contact us to check availability.

Electronics Yorkshire Full Members will receive a 20% discount on equipment use, investigation, analysis and report costs.

Please note that hire of certain equipment within the Technology Centre is in significant demand. As a result, bookings for hire of any piece of equipment will be confirmed back to customers immediately on receipt by e-mail. Any booking which is cancelled 48 hours or less before the date booked will be invoiced in full. Provisional bookings for equipment hire cannot be accepted.
