Convective Module

Convective Module by Akrometrix

The Convective Module sub-room temperature flatness measurement module is used hand-in-hand with Akrometrix' patented TherMoiré technology. The module, when coupled with the TherMoiré system, enables automated phase-stepping analysis and convective cooling and heating. For example, the Convective Module can duplicate test temperatures as required for JEDEC temperature cycling initiative JESD22-A104-B.

The Convective Module is comprised of a heating/cooling chamber assembly that fits into an existing TherMoiré oven chamber and a dual stage air cooler. The system accommodates evaluation of a viewing field as large as 200 mm x 200 mm (8 in. x 8 in.) and uses the fully integrated TherMoiré operating software. Software allows the user to input the thermal profile, temperature points for data acquisition, special purpose composition algorithms, and other information. The system uses this "recipe" to automatically collect, analyze, and store the data for further analysis.

The sample enclosure module contains sample support mounts, thermocouple connections and an insulated tube heater housed outside the sample chamber. The electronics enclosure houses the temperature controls, over-temperature safety shut-off electronics, fusing and power distribution. The standard system power requirement is 220 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
