SD-205

BenchtopRack and Stack

TUVRheinland icon Benchtop Stackable icon

The SD-205 is a benchtop-style environmental test chamber for temperature-only testing.  The chamber is designed to fit on your lab table and still have easy and safe access when you reach-in the workspace.  

If you are concerned about losing your lab counter space, this test chamber has an optional floor stand for one chamber or get double the test workspace when you stack two SD Test Chambers in the same footprint.

STRUCTURE.  The internal workspace is lined with type 204 stainless steel for a vapor-tight internal construction. The exterior has a durable powder-coat finish over heavy-gauge steel for a long-lasting clean look. Between the two layers is highly-efficient, low k-factor, thermal insulation. This chamber is built to last for many years.

CIRCULATION SYSTEM.  Air circulation is crucial for environmental testing. The SD-205 Test Chamber has a proprietary baffle and fan design combination. This optimizes temperature conditions within the workspace. 

HEATING SYSTEM.  SD test chambers feature heating systems equipped with open ceramic-core nichrome heaters for reliable and accurate temperature control within ±0.5°C.

COOLING SYSTEM.  The cooling system in the SD-205 consists of a self-contained mechanical refrigeration system with a cascade configuration, and an air-cooling condenser. An optional water cooling-condenser is available. 

Add boost cooling with liquid LN2 or CO2 for even faster pull-down rates. It's a great option for stress tests that require rapid cooling.  

Even without boost cooling, AES’ standard cascade refrigeration systems have the fastest standard change rates of any environmental test chamber manufacturer. See Basic Specifications tab below. 

INSTRUMENTATION. SD-205 Test Chamber incorporates AESONE CONNECT creating a robust connected device giving you a standard and uniform interface that makes operation easier. Learn more in the Instrumentation Tab below.

Instrumentation

STANDARD INSTRUMENTATION

CONTROLLER   AESONE CONNECT allows for secure remote access to your test chamber and gives easy profile creation, operational control, and data management.

SD Series Test Chambers have incorporated AESONE CONNECT creating a robust connected device for a standard and uniform interface making test chamber operation easier.

AESONE XCHANGE is hardware internal to the chamber that increases your functionality

  • Connects the test chamber controller to your network for increased accessibility
  • On-board multi-year data logging

AESONE SOFTWARE gives you the power to

  • Remote chamber operation and monitoring, 
  • Web-based test profile creation, 
  • Viewing current data and historical data visually
  • Secure multi-level user access 

ADDITIONAL ONBOARD INSTRUMENTATION

WATLOW F4T PROGRAMMABLE CONTROLLER. Features a 4.3” capacitive touchscreen minimizing the chance for error. Ethernet communication supported by AESONE HARDWARE. View more controller options

SENSORS.

  • TEMPERATURE SENSOR. Measured at the point of airflow entering the workspace. Class A, 3-wire, 100 Ohm Platinum RTD sensor
  • RELATIVE HUMIDITY SENSOR. Measured at the point of airflow entering the workspace. Speed of airflow does not affect measurement. Sensor is highly accurate between 10-95% RH, over the entire temperature operating range of -70°C to +180°C (-94°F to +356°F)
