STD Temperature Module:
Temperature or Mechanical Cycle Counting
The STD Temperature Module for STD Event Detectors is a single type-T thermocouple port with RS-232C interface that is mounted inside the STD Event Detector chassis (as shown in the figure above). The Temperature Module adds temperature data to the event/failure data record produced by WinDatalog Software. The monitored chamber or oven temperature is included in the test data when events are detected. The combination of event and temperature data facilitates the correlation of temperature and peak failure-stresses. In addition, the actual elapsed thermal cycle count is also recorded for accurate failure analysis statistics. The Temperature Module has an accuracy of ± 1°C
The STD Temperature Module also has an input mode that allows WinDatalog to count "mechanical cycles" during cyclic reliability testing. Such applications include contact closures on drop-testers or mechanical board-benders, mate-unmate actuation for separable connector testing, or other digital signals from accessory equipment. This feature facilitates event-data analysis that is accurately keyed to the mechanical-cycles-to-failure.
This module is supplied with a type-T thermocouple jack and an RS-232C serial communications cable for connection to the host PC computer running WinDatalog Software.
