Thermal Shock Chamber
We test the quality of our Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) and the integrity of our parts by performing an ‘accelerated aging test’. We expose our products to extreme temperatures with up to 80-120 degrees all the way down to -40 degrees. Products spend 30 minutes in each condition from 100 to 500 cycles.
To simulate river crossings, we submerge our products in water at a level of 1 meter. An IPx7 rating is achieved when a product withstands submersions for up to 1 hour and an IPx8 rating is achieved for submersions with a longer duration.
The rain chamber exposes our products to high water pressure from all directions to simulate heavy rain. This tests our products from JIS D 023 – a Japanese Standard for automotive applications.
The climate chamber allows us to control the temperature and humidity a product is exposed to. When testing for extreme heat and humidity, we check to see if parts will deform or soften. As a result of the quality and testing procedures in place, our products carry some of the industry’s longest warranties.
Our 17,000 square meter state-of-the-art warehouse is one of the most advanced in the automotive market, carrying more than 5,000 individual part numbers in Australia’s most comprehensive market leading catalogue.
