inTEST’s New Test Enclosure Reduces Audible Noise During Electronics Thermal Testing


Reading time ( words)

inTEST Thermal Solutions (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’ new enclosure, called the ECO Quiet Cap connects to the ThermoStream’s air nozzle to reduce the noise and isolate the test subjects.

In addition to the noise reduction, the ECO Quiet Cap has a built-in twist lock for quick connect and disconnect; previous generations of thermal caps required hardware and tools to connect. “We’ve listened to the test engineers that use our products and we are delivering a quieter and more convenient system,” said Greg Martel, general manager of inTEST Thermal Solutions.

Designed specifically for -100 to +225°C applications, the new ECO Quiet Cap will be shipped standard  in August 2018 with high capacity ThermoStream models including: ATS Series 545/645, 710/810, 730/830, 750/850, and ECO Series 710/810. The ECO Quiet Cap will also be available as a retrofit to older model ATS and TP0 Series ThermoStream systems.

AOI Programs with a Magic Click

12/12/2018 | Jens Kokott and Matthias Muller, Goepel electronic
Production runs of 10–1,000 assemblies are everyday life for an EMS provider. But what if important staff are on vacation, and component deliveries are very much delayed? And then the customer is determined to have AOI, but the layout of the assembly is highly customized, making it virtually impossible to use complete library entries. Here's how AOI programs can help you in these scenarios.
