Lake Shore to present sensor mechanical and shock test results at CEC/ICMC

CEC/ICMC 2015If you’re attending the joint Cryogenic Engineering Conference/International Cryogenic Materials Conference in Tucson next week and want to know more about our tests to determine which sensor packaging is most robust, then consider attending our 2 p.m. July 2 presentation during the C3OrG session. The presentation on “Mechanical Robustness of Cryogenic Temperature Sensors Packaged in a Flat, Hermetically Sealed Package” will be conducted by Lake Shore cryogenics expert Dr. Scott Courts, who will share calibration shift results for Lake Shore sensors subjected to:

  • a drop test (at heights of 20 cm, 50 cm, 1 m, and 4 m)
  • vibration per MIL-STD-202, Method 214, Table 2, Condition H
  • mechanical shock per MIL-STD-883, Method 2002, Condition B.

Each sensor was calibrated pre- and post-mechanical treatment and the effect of the treatment on each test sensor was quantified in terms of the equivalent temperature calibration shift.
