Testing products bound for space is a little different for a few reasons, including the lack of air for heat transfer and general level of criticality, no possible service once deployed plus the general high-stakes nature of the whole endeavor.
Hot-only Thermal Platforms, these platforms were initially designed for electro-migration solder processes hot-only testing. The new hot-only platforms are available with maximum temperature ranges of 200, 300, 400, and 450°C.
SCC98-NR is a Thermal Platform System for efficient conductive thermal testing. It features an award-winning Synergy Nano programmable temperature controller and a two-year warranty
An environmental test chamber or temperature chamber is an enclosure used to test the effects of specified environmental conditions on electronic devices, components, industrial products, or biological items – Chambers replicate the conditions they might be subjected to or determine properties in a specific environment.
Thermal Testing of larger modules is now made easy with new larger thermal platform models.
The new SD288-N provides 288 square inches of thermal testing area for your device under test.
Space simulation adds another dimension to thermal testing. In vacuum environments heat is transferred by radiation or conduction since transfer by air currents (convection) is of course not possible without air. This is easily accomplished using thermal platforms in portable T-vacuum systems.
Specially configured Thermal Platform designed for heating and cooling through conduction while in a high altitude or vacuum environment. The TotalTemp Platform can be integrated into an existing vacuum chamber, as is shown in picture on left, or we can provide a complete turnkey system to solve your space simulation or other thermal vacuum challenges.

In the past people used to use pen paper and a stopwatch to do manual graphing. Strip charts and circular chart recorders have come and now gone. Separate logging gear is often expensive and cumbersome.
Product testing takes time and requires careful tracking of results. Thermal Platforms and Hybrid Benchtop Chambers with the Synergy Nano controller not only speed the thermal processes, They automate plotted results while avoiding chances for error. Thus easily producing meaningful data.
