Wyle's Huntsville, AL, operations have been updated with the construction of a new drive-in environmental test chamber designed to operate over a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions. Types of test articles that Wyle can support in the chamber include Humvees, satellites, automobiles, energy equipment, bulldozers, missiles, and other military and commercial vehicles. The environmental test chamber provides the capability to do combined, environmental testing. Technical specifications include temperature cycles from -60 to +160°F and 20 to 95% humidity above 35°F. Solar, humidity, icing, snow, and water spray environmental testing capabilities are offered in the chamber, which features internal dimensions of 32 x 18 x 20 ft, with a 12 x 14-ft vehicle access door to accommodate large products up to full-size commercial and military vehicles.
