Environmental Testing

Environmental stresses – whether extreme heat, extreme cold, moisture or other variables – can contribute to device failure in a myriad of ways, with temperature cycling and thermal cycling subjecting components to a variety of extremes and testing product reliability and performance expectations.

Thermotron Model ATSS-30

Reliability testing of this sort for fiber optic, optoelectronic, military and aerospace components are generally specified in Telcordia (formerly Bellcore) General Requirements and/or Mil-Std documents specifications. Oneida’s suite of Mechanical and Endurance testing specified in these documents are used to provide reliability data for development and qualification of critical components.
