New Testing Station Allows In-House, Low Cost Thermal Analysis and Testing of Electronics Chassis and PCBs

The iTHERM 200™ Thermal Test Station from Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) is an integral system of instruments for precisely measuring and recording airflow velocity and temperature data at multiple points inside electronics housings and on circuit cards. The new system includes a freestanding laboratory wind tunnel, an automated wind tunnel controller, multiple sensors and a temperature and air velocity scanner.

Norwood, MA, July 11, 2010 --( The new iTHERM-200™ Thermal Test Station includes a freestanding wind tunnel, an automated wind tunnel controller, sensors and a temperature and air velocity scanner. The system’s large test chamber and eight candlestick-style sensors allows characterization testing on active or prototype boards and racks, including single ATCA, MicroTCA, cPCI and AMC. The iTHERM-200™ includes an eATVS-8 eight-channel hot wire anemometer for consolidating multi-point velocity and temperature readings into a data management program. Also included is a four-channel pressure transducer that measures differential pressure in enclosures where airflow integrity is critical to proper product performance.
