What is Thermal Transient Testing?
Pasadena Scientific's Thermal Transient Test Sets enable manufacturers to test and evaluate EEDs through non-destructive means. This allows for 100% of the EEDs to be tested - unlike destructive statistical testing methods. Thermal transient testing is done by applying a short constant current pulse across the EED and analyzing the thermal response of the device. The thermal response can determine EED characteristics, conformance/non-conformance, and failure modes in the event of non-conformance. Thermal transient testing is a fast and effective way to ensure 100% conformance and is ideal for EEDs used in high reliability and safety applications.
605 Thermal Transient Test Set
The 605 is a manually balanced test set intended for low-volume bench top testing. The 605 is used in conjunction with an oscilloscope to display the thermal response waveform.
630 Thermal Transient Test Set
The 630 is an automatically balanced, stand-alone test set which may be used for benchtop testing, but is designed for use on a production line. The 630 software enables users to enter test criteria and parameters through the user interface. EED characteristics are automatically calculated, displayed, and recorded. Pass/fail criteria can be input and a non-conformance output signal can be sent to a production line part handler.
