Another instance of reliability testing leading to product improvements!

Delta-Q Technologies, who are a leader in battery charging solutions for industrial machinary and electric vehicles, wrote a recent white paper that reveals how a new design approach to on-board battery chargers results in a more reliable product. Cascade TEK understands that reliability testing is a crucial test for a product such as this, a product that undergoes a tough environment, including shock and vibration. This test helps ensure the charger will work even in the most unstable environments.

Cascade TEK knows a thing or two about Ingress Protection testing (IP Testing), so we created this infographic to summarize how the IP rating system works. There are different levels of protection an enclosure will provide a product, both from solid and liquid intrusions. Having an IP test done on your product at an accredited test lab will ensure that your product is ready for market. From calibrated nozzles to immersion tanks, Cascade TEK is equipped and accredited to perform the appropriate IP test for your product.
