MIL-STD-810G testing procedures

Drop

The Drop test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 516.6 Procedure IV. The objective of this test was to determine whether the unit could be safely operated after being dropped from desk height. For this test, 26 drops were performed from 30 in. onto every side, angle and edge onto 2 in. of plywood over steel over concrete. Unit is powered down and checked for operation.

Physical Shock

The Shock test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 516.6 Procedure I. The objective of this test was to determine whether the unit could be safely operated after being exposed to sudden physical shock events while operational. For this test, 3 shocks were performed across each axis and direction for a total of 18 shocks.

Sand and Dust Resistance

The Dust Resistance test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 510.5, Procedure I (Dust). Test parameters were set so that the unit was dusted with Arizona Road Dust for six hours while being operated.

Vibration

The Vibration Resistance test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G Test Method 514.6, Procedure I(Non- operational) and Procedure II (Operational). Test parameters were set to simulate the following: • Operate the unit during a 1000-mile simulation of vibrations created by a truck driving on a U.S. highway. • Operate the unit after it has been subjected to higher levels of vibration while in storage. Terrain, road and surface discontinuities, vehicle speed, loading, structural characteristics, and suspension system are all reflected in this simulation.

High/low temperature

The High Temperature test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 501.5, Procedure I (Storage) and II (Operation). This test evaluated the units’ performance while it was being exposed to high temperature conditions: 60°C (140°F) operational and 71°C (160°F) non-operational. The Low Temperature test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 502.5,Procedure I (Storage) and II (Operation). This test evaluated the unit’s performance while it was being exposed to low temperature conditions: -29°C (-20°F) operational and -51°C (-60°F) non-operational.

Thermal Shock

The Thermal Shock test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 503.5 Procedure I. The objective of this test was to determine whether the unit could be safely operated after being exposed to sudden changes in ambient temperature while non-operational. The high temperature was set to be 96°C (205°F) and the low temperature to be-51°C (-60°F); three high-to-low cycles were performed.

Altitude

The Altitude test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 500.5, Procedure I (Storage) and II (Operation). The altitude level simulated for both procedures was 15,000 feet (the highest equivalent altitude given within MIL-STD-810G for cargo pressures within military aircraft).

Humidity

The Humidity test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 507.5, Procedure II with the aggravated temperature-humidity cycle. Each cycle was one day (24 hours); ten cycles with the temperature being cycled between 30°C (86°F) and 60°C (140°F); and relative humidity was a constant 95%.

What is Military Tested?

Mil-spec testing is widely used as the benchmark of quality for commercial products in multiple industries. Created by the U.S. government Mil-spec testing helps organisations evaluate how well a particular piece of equipment can perform in the field across multiple industries.

The standard outlines dozen's of test methods, each associated with a source of environmental stress, such as vibration, moisture dust extreme temperatures or humidity
