Severe Environment Testing (SET)

Severe Environment Testing (SET)

Severe Environment Testing (SET) is a Samtec initiative to test certain products beyond typical industry standards and specifications, many of which are common requirements for harsh environment applications/industries.

Driven by demands for high functioning commercial standard interconnects, SET has proven beneficial in providing performance confidence, not only for rugged Mil/Aero industries and applications, but also for Automotive, Industrial and Medical applications.

Industries and Applications

Testing Specifications

Samtec interconnects are subject to a wide variety of standard test procedures that push the industry limits to help ensure quality and durability in any application. Severe Environment Testing includes Samtec’s standard Design Qualification Testing (DQT) and Extended Life Product(E.L.P.) testing, along with additional testing for interconnect systems that will be used in more extreme/harsh applications or environments.

产品appro Samtec的集ved for NASA Class D missions that require high-reliability, quick-turn and cost-effective solutions for LEO and GEO satellites, SmallSats, CubeSats and other space exploration applications.

Additional Tests Included with SET:

  • Higher Mating Cycles with 100% Humidity
  • Intense Shock and Vibration: LLCR & Event Detection
  • Temperature Cycling (500 Cycles)

  • Non-Operating Class Temperature
  • DWV at Altitude
  • Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
  • Outgassing
