AKCP sensorProbe and cameraProbe products undergo harsh environment testing by the government of India
Bangkok, Thailand. March 1, 2005
AKCP, the world leader in SNMP based environmental and security monitoring, today announced sensorProbe and cameraProbe products undergo harsh environment testing by the government of India
The Indian government agency Electronics Test and Development Corporation (ETDC) provided and regulated these tests. Environmental test chambers that are configured for temperature and humidity testing exposed AKCP products to prolonged periods of extreme temperatures and humidity
The test cycle takes about 5 hours. Products are powered and run at the testing points (1, 2, 3, and 4). The test begins with the temperature linearly decreasing from a room temperature to -40°C in the first hour. The temperature stays at -40°C for 30 minutes. Then, it heated up to 85°C with relative humidity of 80%. The system will be tested for 30 minutes, and the temperature will be decreased to room temperature again.
Every product was put into the test chamber, with the three dual sensors to compare the reading value from the sensors and the setting value on the chamber. Reading from all sensors was close to one another, and yield 1% error.
The sensorProbe2 results were impressive; it worked perfectly in temperatures ranging from -35°C to 80°C. For the sensorProbe8 series (sensorProbe8, sensorProbe8-X20, and sensorProbe8-X60), the results were similar, with the maximum operating temperature of 55°C. The cameraProbe8 had an operating environment from -35°C to 55°C.
