There are several locations in aircraft where electrical connectors are regularly subject to high humidity conditions. Even without high humidity conditions, thermal cycling can wear down connector seals and create paths for fluid ingress. The system level impact can vary from signal degradation to shorting and electrical arcing.
This test examines a connector’s resistance to corrosion, and entrance of moisture, long-term durability in high moisture environments. This test method identifies several means of testing a connector in humid conditions. This variations include:
- Exposure Duration
- Relative Humidity
- Low Temperature Exposure
- Applied Voltage
Given the wide variability of the test configurations, the price listed is a starting price. Contact Lectromec to find out about application to your systems.
