Description

FD/HD Series

The FD/HD series is our standard floor-model temperature test chamber. FD chambers are temperature only, whereas HD chambers include a humidity system with a range of 10% to 98% +/- 2% RH. Available in a wide range of volumes, there is a test chamber to meet your environmental testing needs. The construction of the FD/HD series gives it the highest quality and the utmost reliability. Using AES' patented inner baffle design, FD/HD series environmental test chambers are capable of producing a temperature range from -65°C to +180°C (-85°F to +356°F) all while maintaining even and stable airflow. This airflow consistency allows for highly accurate environmental testing on your product. The FD/HD series environmental test chambers are also ideal for thermal cycling tests and can be outfitted with a liquid CO2 or LN2 to improve the functionality of the test chamber.


FD/HD Configurations:

  • FD - Temperature only
  • HD - Temperature and humidity capability

Available in two standard temperature ranges:

  • 500 Series ~ -37°C to +180°C (-35°F to +356°F)
  • 200 Series ~ -65°C to +180°C (-85°F to +356°F)

Safety

Safety Measures

We offer multiple types of safeties on our test chambers to help protect your product and your test chamber if anything malfunctions.

Heat Fuse: (Standard)

A heat fuse or thermal fuse, will interrupt the flow of electricity to the test chamber and shut it down if it reaches a certain temperature.

High Temperature Safety: (Standard)

A digital set temperature safety that will shut down the test chamber if it goes over a certain temperature.

High/Low Temperature Safety:

A digital set temperature safety that will shut down the test chamber if it goes over a certain temperature or below a certain temperature.

VARIABLE SPEED FAN

VARIABLE SPEED FAN

A unique feature of an Associated Environmental Systems test chamber is the variable speed fan we use to control airflow in the chamber. The fan is a variable frequency drive, specifically an ACS310 by ABB, that is dedicated to optimize the variable torque operation of our fans. The speed of the fan can be controlled through a profile or with a control loop on the AES|ONE.
