One of the main product tests conducted by Core Systems is classified as MIL-STD-810G and helps identify performance problems that may occur to our products under harsh and stressful environmental conditions. The goal of these tests is to help improve product quality and reliability.
MIL-Spec tests are designed to replicate real world conditions and the effects of these harsh environments on the equipment throughout its service life.
MIL-STD-810G is a Military Equipment Testing Standard of the US Military which was rolled out in 1962. It consists of various testing methods to determine the equipment capacity under unfavorable military conditions. There are 28 testing methods in MIL-STD-810G such as Low Pressure, Vibration, High/Low Temperature, Shock and more.
The Altitude chamber creates a realistic environment and simulates the temperature, humidity and altitude levels a product goes through during its service life. This method is employed for air-borne or aerospace applications. Intense pressure and vacuum condition tests are performed on our products in this test. Conditions of up to 100,000 feet can be simulated in these altitude chambers.
One of the most common stress factors applied to a product is temperature change. Temperature Cycling, also known as Thermal Cycling, is the process of subjecting a product to multiple cycles of changing temperatures. Our programmed testing can create temperature extremes to achieve fatigue and identify latent defect over a period of time.
The salt and fog chamber tests our product's reaction to salt and fog. The salt test is performed to check the durability of the paint and the protective coating on the material of our products. As salt is present everywhere from air to land and seas, it can cause corrosion and degrade the quality and performance of the machine.
A shaker table is used for vibration testing. Our simulations contain both shock and vibration tests to check for mechanical faults, transportation simulation, Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) and mission profiles for machines as well as Environmental testing for computers.
Electromagnetic interference can disable, or limit the effective performance of electronics. Core Systems has testing in place to replicate real life dangers of EMI. It is a step to deter the effect of electronic warfare and natural phenomena like thunderstorms, solar flares, etc.
