Selection and Installation of Sentek Dynamics'
THV Series Environmental Test Systems
The selection of a THV system is essential to ensure quality and reliable testing at various environmental conditions for ESS (Environmental Stress Screening). Primarily, the application will determine the type of system that is required. Knowing the size of the test article and the test conditions that it is subjected to will also help in selecting the best suited system.
The THV Series environmental test systems are designed to work with Sentek Dynamics’ air and water-cooled Electrodynamic shakers in vertical only, mono-base and multi-axis configurations, and can accommodate other manufacturer’s shakers.
- Chamber volume
- Force rating
- Temperature ramp rates for heating and cooling of the DUT (Device Under Test)
- Type of Controller and its functions
- Accessories and options
Sentek Dynamics’ THV Systems
The table below identifies the range of configurations of chamber sizes (internal chamber volume), maximum force shaker model and maximum slip table size. The maximum force shaker model and slip table size represent the largest/highest capacity vibration system that can be combined with the listed chamber model. Sentek Dynamics’ standard THV systems offer a temperature range of -70°C to +150°C and temperature ramp rates of 5, 10, 15°C. Upon request, we can provide systems operating at temperatures as high as +180°C. The THV systems provide a complete and reliable environmental test system to meet the changing test requirements for a wide-range of industries including aerospace, automotive, electronics and medical.
