Heating Elements HALT Test Vibration Impactors

Vibration and ShockHALT/HASS Chamber HALT -Highly Accelerated Life Testing Combined six-axis vibration and temperature extremes. Intentionally but systematically produces test item failures for the purpose of rapidly identifying mechanical, electrical, design and functional weak points. Design weaknesses can be analyzed, corrected, and the product design optimized. HASS -Highly Accelerated Stress Screening Overstress test to identify marginal or defective products before shipment. HASS test levels are identified during HALT and are established to compress test time without damaging the product or reducing its life.

Fatigue Crack Growth

Vibration and ShockSine Vibration From rotating or oscillating machinery; electric motors, wheels, engines, gears, springs. Useful for evaluating dynamic characteristics of structures, i.e resonance Random Vibration More accurately represents the true environment. Excites all frequencies

Most damage occurs at fundamental frequency of electronics PCB.

Vibration and Shock


High stresses causing fracture or permanent deformation High accelerations which can cause relays to chatter, potentiometers to slip, bolts to loosen. High displacement which can cause impact between adjacent circuit boards Usually not considered a fatigue failure if shock quantity less than 1,000 cycles.

Selecting a Vibration Level or a Shock Pulse

Which Shock Pulse should I Apply? How Many? Which Level? What is the vibration spectrum of interest? How long should I test for? Follow the Contract Specifications Create Your Test Based on Existing Specifications as Guidance Make Field Measurements
