Purpose of the Test

Determine performance characteristics of the equipment during temperature variations between high and low operating temperature extremes.

Not intended to address wet or icing conditions, or condensation (humidity control to prevent condensation in the test chamber is allowed)

The tests in this section are “susceptibility” tests, meaning the units being tested are the “victims” of the environment.
