Proven Powerful and Practical Instrumentation for Altitude & Atmosphere Testing and Experimentation
Abbess Altitude and Atmosphere Testing Chambers are produced with an emphasis on careful coordination of the pumping equipment, the chamber properties and component and controls. Abbess has a highly evolved set of systems and tools specifically designed for recreating Altitude and Atmosphere conditions, Flight & Altitude Simulation, Low Earth Orbit (for experimentation and/or satellite testing), and Deep Space Test environments.
Like all systems designed and manufactured by Abbess Instruments, these systems can be custom engineered and produced to meet your specifications.
Thermal and Vacuum Chamber functionalities combine with profiling proportional control to give operators the tools they need to ramp both temperature and pressure and even customize gas mixtures for highly parallel chamber environments. Abbess Control Systems can be configured for basic function or customized for sophisticated and integrated tests, with customer specific PC/Touchscreen GUI and robust data-logging functionality.
Abbess Altitude & Atmosphere Testing Chambers are ideal for simulating the effects of high altitudes for satellites of all sizes, products, and packaging.
Altitude and Atmosphere Testing Systems
Temperature range (cold)-112F/-80C to (Hot)+300F/150C and Altitudes up to 100,000 feet
Altitude Chambers full integrable into your vibration of shaker tables to provide a robust transit testing platform for your product.
This vacuum chamber system is configured as a versatile platform to conduct aeronautic component tests with. With a temperature range of +200C to -96C, this system is ideal for robust test procedures in both industrial and academic laboratories.
Satellite Testing Vacuum Systems engineered and built for the satellite industry. These systems can be customized for your desired test procedure. The inner Thermal Shroud can be coated with AeroGlaze® to further improve your testing environment.
This Vacuum System allows items placed inside to be exposed to specific vacuum levels and rates of change. A Vacuum Cycle Controller (VCC) is used to automate control functions. The VCC enables system monitoring and control via touch screen buttons and graphic indications of sensor data registered and controlled by a PC with a user-specific Graphical User Interface (GUI).
The tall size of the altitude chamber allows sample carts to be wheeled in with ease. By being able to load the chamber efficiently, it is easier to subject the product sample process to various altitudes. The operable clear acrylic port provides quick and easy access to a test system without needing to unclamp the larger door.
Abbess Instruments has carefully designed three-levels of Altitude Chamber vacuum systems of varying complexity. Listed are standard packages with can be bought as a bundle, or can be customized to fit certain specifications.
This 24 inch cube is capable of process testing in both vacuum and positive pressure.
This Dual Altitude Chamber System has two separate chambers that function and are controlled independently. This system a facilitates the user to conduct and monitor separate or parallel tests.
The Abbess Thermal Vacuum Chamber System shown facilitates thermal and vacuum profiles consistent with altitudes to 200K feet. Customer defined devices are supported with an array of 25 pin D-sub, BNC and SMA feedthrus.
