Testing High Voltage Circuit Boards 350V at a Simulated Altitude of 60000 Feet

What you are seeing here is our crystal clear acrylic vacuum chamber, hinged side door with clamps. In addition, our client has asked us to add 1. A quantity of two high power feedthroughs on the top right wall, 2. An 8-pin power connector, and 3. a multi-pin feed through. These vacuum feedthroughs enable the routing of electrical power and signals from the outside of the chamber into the inside of the chamber without disrupting the vacuum.

The Feedthroughs are fully fastened to the wall and hermetically sealed by an O-Ring or Vacuum epoxy. The advantage is that the electronics can be connected and a vacuum can be pulled without leakage.

If we open the door, we can see the power cables perturbing into the inside of the chamber. Here, our client is able to connect these wires to their electrical device, close the door, and pull a vacuum. Because the walls are made of cast transparent acrylic, the electrical components inside the chamber fully visible during the test.

Internal Pressurization ASTM F2096 Leak Testing Systems
Internal Pressurization (ASTM F2096) Leak Testing Systems are instruments that are used during the Quality Control process to discover leaks in sealed packages. As opposed to the vacuum bubble leak test, where the specimen is subjected to a vacuum, the internal pressurization integrity test creates a pressure difference and drives the air through a leak by internally pressurizing the specimen. Our Internal Pressurization Leak Testing Systems are designed and built to conform to the ASTM F2096 Protocol Standard.
BNC Vacuum Feedthroughs
Coaxial Vacuum Feedthroughs are vacuum rated BNC connectors that enable you to run BNC from outside of vacuum chamber towards inside of the vacuum chamber without disturbing the vacuum. Triaxial Vacuum Feedthroughs, just like coax vacuum feedthroughs, will enable you to run Triax Connections from outside towards the inside of the vacuum chamber without disturbing the vacuum levels inside the vacuum chamber.
Our Work: Research, Development, and Testing of Weather Balloons inside a Clear Vacuum Chamber
A wonderful company (more like one of the best companies in the world) which is currently involved with the research, development, and testing of high-altitude weather balloons, had a need for a vacuum chamber capable of achieving about 100 micro Torr (Micron) of ultimate Pressure for their testing environment. Fortunately, acrylic vacuum chambers are the perfect choice when it comes to Low, Rough, and Medium Vacuum.
