BINDER constant climate chambers, now with an extended climate range

The climate range of the Binder KMF series of constant climate chambers is being extended to 98% relative humidity. This allows for an even wider range of applications.

In all areas of industry, ever higher requirements are being placed on the durability of materials and products. Material load testing carried out over a long period is used to test the temperature and humidity resistance of materials more intensively and to determine their durability under different climatic conditions. For this reason, BINDER GmbH has extended the climate range of the KMF series of constant climate chambers from 90% to 98% relative humidity. The extended humidity range makes it possible for test materials to be subjected to even tougher conditions. This is extremely advantageous in the electrical and electronics industry since, in this field in particular, test scenarios are often carried out at high humidity levels.

The constant climate chambers are designed for stress testing in long-term operation with stable temperature and humidity values. Test materials can be exposed to a temperature range of between -10°C and +100°C and humidity of between 10% and 98%. Due to the shallow depth and tall design of the device, it has a large access area so all operating elements are easily accessible from the front. In addition, an inner glass door with a seal protects the testing chamber from unwanted temperature fluctuations. This means that the test materials can be examined without having to open the door.

The testing chamber is fitted with a drift-free, capacitive moisture sensor, which helps with the quick reaction time of the steam humidifying system and allows for a short recovery time after the door is opened.

In addition, the device has a high resistance to chemicals since the evaporator is made of pure stainless steel. This means that no non-ferrous metals are used in the outer vessel, which prevents unwanted electro-chemical reactions. Air circulation on both sides guarantees homogeneous climate conditions across all test materials, even if the device is fully loaded.

Furthermore, the device is extremely flexible with regard to the water supply. If the water quality is acceptable, the device can be connected directly to the household water system. However, if the water quality is unacceptable, there is also the option of using the BINDER PURE AQUA Service water treatment system. This system processes faucet water and demineralizes it. There is also the option of attaching an external water supply set so that the device is not dependent on the water supply and installation location.

The constant climate chamber can also be modified by BINDER to suit any special customer requirements. Whether these are additional windows or doors, extra access ports for measuring instruments, a connection for a compressed air dryer or alternatively a CO2 supply, the BINDER INDIVIDUAL range is practically limitless.

Exceptional Full HD Digital Inspection with the VisionZ2 from Vision Engineering

Utilising the power of full-HD (1080p) digital imaging, Vision Engineering’s new VisionZ2 video inspection system provides ultimate optical performance in a high quality, compact design – now including integral image capture via USB, so there is no need for a separate PC.

Suitable for production environments, VisionZ2 was designed to be simple to operate, with superior optical performance delivering perfect inspection results, time after time.

Perfect imaging requires not only an exceptional high performance full HD (1080p) camera, but also a ‘live’ image for easy hand-eye co-ordination. VisionZ2's image rate of up to 60 fps (frames per second) provides ultimate optical performance, far superior to most television images (which have an image rate of 25 fps), making detailed inspection and manipulation easy.

With an extremely large field of view, zoom magnification options up to 122x and a range of configurations, VisionZ2 is the professional choice for a very wide range of precision magnification tasks including: production areas, R&D, laboratory, micro assembly, electronics, micro mechanics, automotive, dental technology, medical device, forensics, quality control tasks, presentation and training.
