Environmental simulation with climate chambers: data security and online analysis

Environmental simulation with climate chambers is an effective method for investigating the effects of different environmental conditions on materials, products or organisms. In climate chambers, temperature and humidity conditions can be specifically set to mimic natural environmental conditions or to simulate extreme environmental scenarios. This type of simulation makes it possible to investigate the influence of environmental factors on various parameters such as the shelf life of products, the growth of plants or the behavior of animals. This enables manufacturers, researchers and scientists to carry out precise analyses and develop targeted optimization measures to reduce environmental impact or improve the quality and performance of products.

In addition, climate chambers offer the possibility of simulating environmental scenarios that would be difficult or impossible to reproduce in nature. For example, extreme temperatures or humidity levels can be simulated to study the reaction of materials or organisms in such environments. This information is particularly important for predicting how products or organisms may behave and react under extreme conditions. The results of such studies can be an important basis for the development of sustainable solutions to minimize environmental damage or to develop environmentally friendly products and technologies. By combining state-of-the-art climate chambers with other analytical methods and modeling, complex relationships between environmental conditions and the objects under investigation can be analyzed in detail.

Climate chambers form the basis for stressing and testing products in long-term operation under simulated conditions that are as realistic and application-specific as possible. For example, temperature and humidity profiles, UV radiation and vibrations are combined depending on the application. The Delphin measuring devices record and permanently monitor the measurement data of the test specimens and the climate data. The integrated data memory ensures that all measurement data is archived reliably and seamlessly. Faults and limit value violations can be reported via switching output, SMS, fax or e-mail. The ProfiSignal-The software displays all information clearly in visualization charts and diagrams and enables quick access to current and historical data.

Application highlights for environmental simulation with climate chambers

  • Measuring, automation and monitoring functions combined in one system
  • Data security thanks to PC-independent storage of measurement data in the device
  • Monitoring of test specimens and e-mail or SMS notification in the event of a fault or failure
  • Internal device software channels enable extensive functional expansions
  • Online analysis and historical data in the same diagram

Practical example of an environmental simulation in climate chambers

Environmental and service life tests in climate chambers

A manufacturer of hose clamps, metal pipe couplings and plastic hoses for air, cooling water and fuel lines in the automotive sector subjects its products to various environmental and service life tests in numerous climate chambers. On a charge air test bench, for example, processes in the engine compartment of a truck are simulated by means of corresponding temperatures, movement and pressure generation on the test specimen in the climate chamber. What is important here is the complete archiving and monitoring of all climate profiles, test parameters and measured values. Tests run around the clock for up to 2,000 hours, depending on requirements. For this reason, ProfiMessage devices are used for these tasks. ProfiSignal Klicks allows all climate chambers and test specimens to be monitored from the workstation.
