Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT testing) and Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS testing) provide efficient and reliable methods for combining multiple test types into a single, comprehensive testing program.
Element’s HALT testing and HASS testing capabilities combines high temperatures with random vibration to evaluate performance and durability. In addition to testing finished components, HALT testing is frequently used in R&D and design validation to anticipate issues before they arise, and avoid costly mistakes that might occur in full-scale testing, or in the field.
HALT testing also provides important information about the performance of finished systems. Engineers simulate real-world conditions to uncover hidden defects before sending the product to market. By monitoring system performance throughout the testing process, Element can provide crucial details about structural vulnerability, thermal reactions, useful life, and more.
