Higher Temperature Output: +300°C!

T-2500E/300 PTFS Thermonics introduces the T-2500E/300 Precision Temperature Forcing System (PTFS). Precision Temperature Forcing Systems are used for high and low temperature testing of semiconductor, hybrid, and other components and small assemblies. Heating or cooling of the test device is achieved by submerging it in a stream of temperature-controlled air. A glass shroud provides a confined temperature environment for the test device, assuring integration of the DUT with the air stream. Model T-2500E/300, which is based on the successful T-2500 product family, provides increased temperature testing capability by extending the hot temperature output capability to +300C. By developing a system with a total enhanced temperature range of -80C to +300C, Thermonics is uniquely able to provide a PTFS for engineering or production environments that have higher temperature test requirements. The increased temperature capability of the T-2500E/300 can facilitate the testing of devices that function in more extreme environments, hence it is ideal for characterizing products that operate in higher temperature environments such as devices produced for the geothermal and automotive industries.

Operator interface of the T-2500E/300 uses Thermonics' timetested and well-developed touch-screen graphical user interface (GUI). The intuitive and thorough menus are easy to use and enable the end-user to configure all operating parameters such as temperature set point, cycle times, and data communication protocols. Multiple system configurations can be stored and recalled at any time. These setups can be stored to the internal system memory or exported to a USB storage device for later recall. Remote control of the T-2500E/300 is implemented via RS-232C or IEEE-488 interfaces. Remote access to the system includes the ability to read or set all significant operating parameters. This includes parameters such as temperature set points, cycling criteria and DUT temperature. Proprietary temperature control algorithms provide precise temperature control. The tight, accurate functioning of this patented control technique, quickly and accurately brings the fixture or device to the desired temperature with minimal perturbations around the set point. Service and support is available worldwide. Whether you are in the USA, Asia or Europe, a qualified technician can service the system quickly and efficiently. Support is always available from the factory via telephone, web-form or email.
