Thermal Vacuum Testing

The environmental test Lab has a state-of-the-art control room. Here the seven thermal vacuum testing chambers can be controlled remotely via PC and networked Eurotherm / Specview control system.
The chambers are capable of subjecting the test units to the extremes of their working environment, simulating the severe conditions of space (-196˚C to +150˚C). The temperature of the test item is controlled via thermal conduction plates and radiative shrouds.

During testing, the test item may be powered up and signals can be analysed outside the chamber by means of power and data feed-through cables. All data is recorded via our Specview data logging system.
