Temperature Shock Testing/Thermal Shock Testing
The temperature shock test is an essential part of an environmental simulation. In a thermal shock test, specimens are repeatedly subjected to defined temperature changes (called temperature shocks) to test the effects of the temperature changes on the specimens. Frequent repetitions of these temperature changes reveal weak points and environmental influences that occur in a specific temperature range and under extreme weather conditions in the field during development or production.
Thermal shock testing (thermal shock or also thermal shock testing; related standard: DIN EN 60068 2) is a variant of thermal cycling. In this variant, the components are subjected to strong temperature differences, a so-called thermal shock, in a very short time.
Temperature cycling (according to DIN EN 60068-2-14)
Cyclic change between two defined temperature upper and lower limits to simulate the life cycle/lifetime of the components.
Rapid temperature change (according to DIN EN 60068-2-14 Na, transfer duration < 15s)
During rapid temperature change or temperature shock according to DIN EN 60068-2-14, the test specimens are subjected to very rapid temperature changes.
Cold (according to DIN EN 60068-2-1)
This test is used to test the utilization of one-sided loads with a defined cold.
Heat (according to DIN EN 60068-2-2)
This test is used to check the utilization of one-sided loads with a defined heat.
Humidity-heat constant (according to DIN EN 60068-2-30)
In this test, the test specimen is exposed to a defined high humidity at a defined temperature.
Humidity-heat cyclic (according to DIN EN 60068-2-38)
In this test, the test specimen is exposed to a defined high humidity at alternating temperature cycles.
