Temperature shock test chamber TS60

The ESS (Environmental Stress Screening) test procedure allows for manufacturing faults detection at early stages of the production.

TS60, ESS, temperature shock test chambers

From hot to ice cold in less than 10 seconds

The test chamber consists of two independently controlled chambers, one hot and one cold chamber. These are positioned on top of each other. A temperature shock between hot and cold is achieved by rapid transferring the specimens placed in a lift. The specimens are exposed to a shock wised temperature change.

The temperature levels and the number of cycles determine the severity level.

A variety of standards specify the details of the test

  • Temperature of the hot chamber
  • Temperature of the cold chamber
  • Dwell time in the hot chamber
  • Dwell time in the cold chamber
  • Duration of transport process
  • Number of cycles


  • Test space 60 l
  • Vertical order of the chamber for safe and quick test performance
  • Regular temperature distribution in test space via a high recirculating rate with optimum air flow
  • Hot chamber temperatures of +50°C to +220°C
  • Cold chamber temperatures of -80°C to +70°C
  • Alternating time between the chambers
  • More than 1,000 cycles are possible without defrosting via
  • A standard integrated volume compensation system for continuously operation
  • Low sound-pressure level, only 58 dB(A)
