Environmental Hardening

Comtech SSD drives are developed and independently tested to stringent criteria.

  • High Altitude: Operation at 80,000 feet
  • Mechanical Shock:
    • Operation ─ 40G@ 11ms, 3x in 6 directions
    • Fragility ─ 1,500G@ 0.5ms, 3x in 6 directions
  • Random Vibration: Operating ─ 16Grms, 20Hz to 2KHz, 1 hour per axis, 3 axes
  • Temperature Shock: -40°C to +85°C, 10 cycles

Additional Options:

  • Silicone Gel Fill Polymer encapsulates PCB assembly to provide immersion resistance and resist mechanical shock and dynamic vibration
  • Conformal Coating ─ Thin film of silicone elastomer provides additional moisture resistance.
  • Component Staking ─ Epoxy anchors components to increase resistance to shock and vibration.
