Environmental assessment and reliability of industrial equipment with IEC 60068-2-48 standard
The NF EN 60068-2-48 / IEC 60068-2-48 standard, a crucial milestone in the field of environmental testing for industrial equipment, establishes rigorous testing procedures to assess the impact of prolonged storage on components. These tests, which can span from a few weeks to several years, aim to understand the consequences of exposure to variable environmental conditions and to verify the resilience and reliability of equipment in storage scenarios.
Climatic chamber: Simulating and testing the stability of industrial components
The use of an climatic chamber is fundamental to ensuring compliance with IEC standards. Designed to simulate various climatic conditions, these chambers replicate potential storage conditions for equipment. They provide the flexibility to vary or maintain temperature and humidity levels, adapting to the specific needs of each test.
These devices are essential for simulating a comprehensive spectrum of storage conditions, ranging from extreme cold to intense heat and varying humidity levels. These tests are crucial to anticipate how equipment will react in the long term under these conditions and to identify any potential issues before they occur in an operational context.
