Instrument System Enables Precise Air Flow and Temperature Testing
Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) has introduced the iTHERM-100 Test Station, a turnkey system of laboratory instruments and sensors for studies that require precise air flow velocity and temperature measurement. Applications include thermal management studies on boards, heat sinks, fans, ATCA cards, and racks.
The iTHERM-100 Test Station includes a benchtop, laboratory-grade wind tunnel, automated controller, and multiple sensors to precisely manage the velocity and direction of airflow within its test environment. The system can be used for characterizing air flow and measuring pressure drop across heat sinks and over other PCB components. With an attached thermocouple, the iTHERM-100 can be used for individual thermal management studies on CPUs and other hot components.
All instruments, sensors and application software used on these systems are designed and manufactured by ATS. The devices are optimized for system performance, but can also be reconfigured or used individually. Detailed instruction manuals are provided. ATS engineers can also provide on-site set-up and training. The iTHERM-100 system costs $16,469, a 15% savings on the regular price of each system component.
