In addition to vibration, ground vehicle applications also present extreme temperature, water, dust and mud for the power supply to withstand. For an externally mounted unit, a water-tight solution using conduction cooling, with a robust finish is a preferred approach. For internally mounted units, the requirements may be less stringent and will be appropriately addressed by the design team.
Viable Power’s expertise and experience professionally addresses our customers’ power supply product needs for these demanding applications. As with all Viable Power products, they are designed and manufactured in our 13,000 square foot facility in Pointe-Claire, Quebec in Canada.
After a series of qualification level tests on a qualification unit, the power supplies are manufactured in accordance with the requirements of IPC-J-STD-001 Class 3. Each product undergoes stringent quality inspections to IPC-A-610 Class 3 during the manufacturing phase, followed by a series of electrical performance and environmental stress screening tests which include vibration and thermal cycling.
