Heat chambers, or environmental testing chambers, are essential for testing PCBs and products intended to be used in an embedded system for extreme environments. The heat chamber allows system designers to observe the impact of different temperatures on components and system performance, allowing for quick validation of designs that are expected to meet demanding environmental conditions.

For example, military and defence embedded computing systems will need to operate effectively at incredibly low and high temperatures, due to the varied environments that it may be used. To be able to accurately guarantee that a system will function effectively and consistently at a certain operating temperature, the product needs to be tested extensively to demonstrate this.

At Recab UK, we have a heat chamber on-site to allow for extensive heat testing of our embedded computing products. Having this resource in-house means that we can streamline the testing and validation process of our product designs, allowing us to quickly develop solutions for even the most extreme applications.

Below are some examples of projects Recab UK has delivered that have involved the use of heat chamber testing.
