Description of the climate test facility

The main functional characteristics of the thermostatic enclosure are:

  • Useful volume: 280 dm3;

  • Useful dimensions of the thermostatic enclosure: 720 x 690 x 560 mm.

  • Temperature variation range: -400*C … 180*C;

  • Humidity variation range: 10 … 95 % r.h.

The thermohygrostatated room is equipped with controllers with the resolution of setting and displaying the temperature and the relative unit of 0.1*C, respectively 0.1% r. It has a digital thermometer, with the display resolution of 1*C, for controlling the temperature of the probes.
