Vacuum Testing to Prevent Product Failure – Part 2

Posted: Sep 14, 2018
Changes in air pressure and other environmental fluctuations, such as changes in temperature and humidity, can affect the performance of electronics. Thermal vacuum testing simulates atmospheric conditions, including temperature and altitude, at high altitudes and in space. Vacuum testing mimics these environmental changes to help manufacturers evaluate their long-term effects on essential and non-essential components. It’s important to test these environmental changes because air does not conduct electricity in the same way that metal does, so air works well as an electric insulating medium in electronic devices. The insulating properties of air are ideal at sea level, but it begins
