Environmental Stress Screening
ESS testing consists of applying stimuli to a functioning unit in the form of vibration and burn-in. The applied stimuli must be severe enough to precipitate the defects without causing harm to or reducing the useful life of the product under test. The application of environmental stresses will identify the latent defects. Viable Power’s facility and team of experts are available to assist with your ESS testing requirements.
Any company working on military aerospace, defense and naval sectors contracts is contractually required to perform thorough ESS testing to conform to MIL-HBBK-2164. Businesses that make components for the aeronautics sector have to conform to FAA regulations and other industry standards also require ESS testing. Our vibration system, temperature and temperature/humidity chambers can be programmed to meet the specified requirements.
