Environmental Testing Services

Offering a full suite of environmental services, Contech Research conducts thorough and effective environmental testing to evaluate the susceptibility of specific failure mechanisms as they may occur on electrical connectors, sockets and components for the Telecommunication, Military, Computer, Automotive and consumer industries. Our wide range of environmental testing available includes Mixed Flowing Gas, Humidity, Temperature, Salt Fog, Dust, Thermal Cycling, IP Testing and many others meets needs of the electronics industry to establish a baseline for quality and performance. We also offer plating analysis including testing for plating thickness, porosity, and solderability.

Included in our responsibility to carrying out your testing needs includes proper test and sample preparation including thorough cleaning(if required), sample mounting to test boards, and custom fixture design/build to ensure that our tests are accurate and reliable. In addition, we can design special tests and procedures as needed, and provide all supporting documentation for every test we conduct.

  We perform varied environmental testing. Here are several temperature and humidity cycling chambers running tests.
