Climatic chamber Vötsch VCS³ 7540-8-S PREMIUM

Thermal and Humidity Testing Service

The Beyond Gravity Test Center is equipped with the large climatic test chamber Vötsch VCS³ 7540-8-S*for large test items.

This chamber complements our capacity for testing large test items with our large vibration facility. Furthermore this climatic chamber has a fast temperature change rate with up to 10 K per min.

This climatic chamber are able to regulate humidity from 10% RH p to 95% RH in addition to temperature.

The achievable temperature range of this chamber extends from -72°C up to a maximum of +180°C. The Tests can be programmed with the control and recording system and is fully network compatible. It is also possible to perform a variety of wet tests as dripping water, splash water and immersion tests.
