Characterization of half million of On/Off of mechanical switches in a vacuum and -170ºC
The control of the vacuum system, the temperature, and the pneumatic system was controlled by a program of a LabVIEW made for the test that synchronicity all the system:
- The electrical characterization
- Mechanical characterization
Download the case and read the final evaluation of the extension, the test results, and our conclusions.
We wanted to verify the correct behavior during half a million on and off switches on this occasion. To carry out this test, it was necessary to use linear feedthrough that would allow us to operate a mechanical arm that would press the switches from outside the space simulation chamber.
In this successful case of the Optoelectronics LAB, we explain why we have decided to use a pneumatic system that allowed us to carry out half a million interactions. In addition to the design of the mechanical parts to simulate the interaction.
