New Test Enclosure Reduces Audible Noise During Electronics Thermal Testing

Posted by Tom Ryan on Aug 14, 2018 11:20:00 AM

iTS, manufacturer of the Temptronic® ThermoStream® air forcing system, has developed an enclosure that provides a 55% reduction in the noise caused by forced air during electronics thermal cycling. Electronics testing often requires concentrated air flow to rapidly transition components to specified temperature in a test enclosure. iTS’s new enclosure, called the ECO Quiet Cap connects to the ThermoStream’s air nozzle to reduce the noise and isolate the test subjects.­

Family of Standard -60 °C and -40 °C Portable Chillers

Posted by Tom Ryan on Jul 19, 2018 2:08:00 PM

A standard line of -40 °C and -60 °C portable, low-temperature chillers has been introduced by Thermonics Corporation. These 12 air- and water-cooled fluid chillers build on the recently introduced family of -80°C units. With precise temperature control of recirculating heat-transfer fluids, each model provides various capacities to support a particular application, up to 5.4kW at -40°C.
