Life is hard, but the BINDER KMF is harder

Sweltering heat and spilled coffee on the keyboard: Life presents severe challenges to electronic components. A test in a BINDER chamber for constant climatic conditions provides exactly the information you need to predict the expected service life

(PresseBox) (Tuttlingen, ) The new BINDER KMF permits operation for thousands of hours under precise constant climatic conditions with high heat compensation. It has a temperature range from -10°C to 100°C and 10% to 90% relative humidity, making it the optimal test chamber for your tests requiring constant climatic conditions.

The KMF's inner chamber is bent and welded at the same time in a single, fully automated process step. Both the chamber housing and the outer door have gaskets. The new KMF chambers also have a second, inner door with separate seals and glass panels. This eliminates the cold thermal bridge that occurs with a single glass outer door, and ensures homogenous temperature and humidity distribution within the chamber interior. Doors and door frames are equipped with separately controlled heating elements. This prevents condensation on the inner and outer doors. The design helps to maintain even highly critical parameters without condensation.

In the new model series, heating, fans and refrigeration are installed into the back wall, a further optimization of the proven APT.line™ . This leaves the sidewalls completely free for any customized access ports that may be required. The newly developed humidification system injects pressurized steam through a valve into the interior, where the superfine steam rapidly distributes homogenously throughout the entire chamber. Another important advantage is that the system operates with virtually any type of water quality. This gives users the option of using distilled water or even tap water with a hardness of up to 8°dH. For water with higher hardness values, BINDER offers the BINDER PURE AQUA SERVICE water purification system, which can be installed into the feed-water line. For dehumidification, BINDER has equipped the new KMF with large-surface, split evaporators working in parallel, with one section for cooling and the other for dehumidification. This new technology ensures homogenous operation, even in the lower temperature range up to 10°C. As with the electronics inserts, the steam boiler and the refrigeration unit are modular, easily accessible within the designated equipment space, and designed for convenient and cost-effective cleaning.

These chambers will be available with 115, 240 and 720L interior chambers; the 240 L unit is available now. The small 115 L and the larger 720 L chambers will follow later this year.
