CBS – Climate Burn-in System

Our climate and burn-in test systems (CBS) are fitted with independent climate chambers whose humidity levels do not affect each other. This makes the system particularly efficient.

Independent climate chambers

The CBS production tools consist of a loading and unloading measurement point, along with the climate chambers and associated measurement electronics. When fully equipped, our systems offer you eight small climate chambers, each with four magazines. In each compartment, the humidity is regulated separately via a passive system. This allows you to load and unload the compartments independently.

Always the right fit for the sample

As an example, you can see here the image of a CBS that is used mainly for multilayers. The design makes it possible to process actuators in different shapes and sizes with the same contact system. Just like all our systems, this CBS can be adjusted to different sample designs. Its construction ensures that any increased humidity does not affect the durability of the measurement electronics and contact quality.

Preloading the magazines

The loading and unloading measurement point on this system lets you independently prepare the individual sample magazines. The magazines feature barcodes that can be read by a scanner to ensure that samples are allocated correctly. This information is then transferred from the loading point to the main system. As a result, you get full traceability.
