Wyle Updates Construction on New Test Chamber

Wyle’s Huntsville, Ala., operations have been updated with construction of a new drive in environmental test chamber. Vehicles such as Humvees, satellites, automobiles, energy equipment, bulldozers and others will be tested in chamber.

“Wyle now has the largest test chamber outside a government facility in the southeast United States,” said Keith Wilson, vice president of Wyle Test and Engineering East. “This will make it much easier for our customers to get one-stop-shop testing with quick turnaround on the services they require.”

The test chamber can withstand a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions. Some of the chambers’ other capabilities include:

  • Temperature cycles from -60 degrees F to +160 degrees F
  • 20 to 95 percent humidity above 35 degrees F
  • Solar, humidity, icing, snow and water spray environmental testing

According to Wyle, some of the customers interested in the new chamber includes Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Tyonek, Southern Company, Maytag, General Electric, Mercedes Benz and BMW. Wyle has additional on-site testing capabilities including dynamic, structural, acoustics and EMI/EMC to meet other test requirements.
