Ruggedization Levels

Speak to an Expert

Ruggedization: Full Environmental Compliance.


Ruggedization Level 1 Standard (Air-cooled)
Operating Temperature 0 to +55°C with 300 linear ft./min. airflow
Storage Temperature -50 to +100°C
Vibration 0.002g/Hz from 10 to 2000Hz random and 2g sinusoidal from 5 to 500Hz
Shock 20g peak sawtooth, 11mS duration
Humidity Up to 95% RH
Notes: Commercial grade, for use in benign environments and software development applications.

 

Ruggedization Level 2 Extended Temperature (Air-cooled)
Operating Temperature -20 to +65°C with 300 linear ft./min. airflow
Storage Temperature -50 to +100°C
Vibration 0.002g2/Hz from 10 to 2000Hz random and 2g sinusoidal from 5 to 500Hz
Shock 20g peak sawtooth, 11mS duration
Humidity Up to 95% RH with varying temperature, 10 cycles, 240 hours
Notes: Similar to standard, conformally-coated for added åprotection and temperature characterized.

 

Ruggedization Level 3 Rugged (Air-cooled)
Operating Temperature -40 to +75°C with 600 linear ft./min. airflow
Storage Temperature -50 to +100°C
Vibration 0.04g2/Hz 20 to 2000Hz, with a flat response to 1000Hz, 6dB/octave roll-off from 1000 to 2000Hz
Shock 20g peak saw tooth, 11mS duration
Humidity Up to 95% RH with varying temperature, 10 cycles, 240 hours
Notes: Wide temperature, conformally-coated for added protection. Optional Environment Stress Screening (ESS).

 

Ruggedization Level 4 Rugged (Conduction-cooled)
Operating Temperature -40 to +75°C at the thermal interface
Storage Temperature -50 to +100°C
Vibration Random, 0.1g2/Hz from 15 to 2000Hz per MIL-STD- 810E Fig 514.4 - 8 for high performance aircraft. ~12g RMS
Shock 40g peak saw tooth, 11mS duration
Humidity Up to 95% RH with varying temperature, 10 cycles, 240 hours
Notes: Designed for severe environment applications with high levels of shock and vibration, small space envelope and restricted cooling. Optional Environment Stress Screening (ESS).

 

Ruggedization Level 5 Rugged (Conduction-cooled)
Operating Temperature -40 to +85°C at the thermal interface
Storage Temperature -50 to +100°C
Vibration Random, 0.1g2/Hz from 15 to 2000Hz per MIL-STD- 810E Fig 514.4 - 8 for high performance aircraft. ~12g RMS
Shock 40g peak saw tooth, 11mS duration
Humidity Up to 95% RH with varying temperature, 10 cycles, 240 hours
Notes: Designed for severe environment applications with high levels of shock and vibration, small space envelope and restricted cooling. Optional Environment Stress Screening (ESS).

 

 

Ruggedization on Levels A to E

Abaco Systems has also introduced Ruggediza on Levels A to E which are iden cal in every respect to Ruggediza on Levels 1 to 5 except that the upper opera ng temperature limits are de ned on a product by product basis. This allows Abaco to o er the very highest performance products without the restric ons of xed upper temperature limits. For products rated under this scheme the upper temperature limit is de ned in the product manual.

Level A = Level 1 : except Opera ng Temperature = 0 to X°C (consult manual for X)

Level B = Level 2 : except Opera ng Temperature = -20 to X°C (consult manual for X)

Level C = Level 3 : except Opera ng Temperature = -40 to X°C (consult manual for X)

Level D = Level 4 : except Opera ng Temperature = -40 to X°C (consult manual for X)

Level E = Level 5 : except Opera ng Temperature = -40 to X°C (consult manual for X)
