The PAC series of climatic chambers are a great choice for cyclic low, high temperature and humidity tests. Built with the highest quality and reliability, this chamber is capable of meeting the most stringent testing needs of various international standards such as ASTM, IEC, MIL, DIN, etc.
There are two variants of the climatic chamber namely “AH” & “BH” with the temperature range between -40oC to 180oC (for AH) and -70oC to 180oC (for BH). The boiler system simulates humidity between 10%RH to 98%RH with the standard ramp rate of 3oC/Min (also available in 5oC/Min, 10oC/Min, 15oC/Min & 20oC/Min). The AISI-304 grade polished stainless steel test space is non-corrosive and durable, offering high uniform load bearing capacity with a maximum of 100 Kg. The test space comes in various volumes ranging from 120 Litre to 1000 Litres. Inside the test space the airflow is maintained laminar ensuring uniform temperature gradient across the test specimen. There is also provision to keep the test specimen on the adjustable shelves whose maximum shelf load capacity is up to 25 Kg. The adjustable shelves are ideal for electronics/electrical component testing and even to run a live specimen test. The semi – hermetically sealed compressor (both singles as well as cascade refrigeration system) is not only calm but also offer the highest efficiency among its peers. The inner grooved evaporator unit with fins for heat exchange is designed to operate under extreme testing conditions, which not only boost the performance of the chamber but also increase its reliability.
Designed and developed by CME’s global R&D team the chamber is engineered with the latest simulation technology with an objective to offer unparalleled testing experience to the customers. The highly responsive touchscreen controller (Envicom Graphite Series) used in this chamber is bundled with whole lots of features; such as Chamber Analytics, On -demand cooling, on – screen diagnostics, safety alarms. It is also integrated with networking ports such as Ethernet, RS 232, RS 485 along with 2GB SD card for test data storage. The features also include the integration with third party software such as NI/Lab view.
The biggest advantage with CME chambers is that they are highly flexible for customization. Every test follows a set of procedures as per the defined test standards (ASTM, IEC, MIL, etc.) and sometimes a standard climatic chamber might not be sufficient to conduct a particular test. Our engineers understand this need of the industry and offer the highest level of customisation such as design modification or integration with other applications such as Climatic Chamber with UTM integration, Climatic Chamber with Vibration Integration, etc. More about this will be available in “Customised Solution” page.
PAC chambers are designed to perform at extreme testing conditions which is evident from its rigid yet functional design which incorporates a whole lots of features to improve the testing experience.

The Climatic chamber simulates real world environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity in its test space. The specimen is kept in the test space, which is then subjected to the above mentioned test conditions as per particular test guidelines in order to determine its reliability or failure rate. This test plays an important role in the product developmental stage enabling companies to develop a highly reliable product for their customers. CME’s climatic chamber has a temperature range between -40oC and 180 oC (for AH) and -70 oC to 180 oC (for BH) while a humidity range between 10%RH and 98%RH.
The Climatic chamber is primarily used in the product development stage and to an extent in the quality adherence stage of the components or on the end products from Automotive, Electronics, Electrical, Aerospace and Defence industries.
Yes, our climatic chamber complies with more than 150 international test standards including those of MIL, IEC, DIN, ISO etc.
CME offers 4 different models of climatic chambers based on their volumes, which are 120 litre, 225 litres, 540 litres and 1000 litres. The right model for your test requirement is based on the volume of your test specimen, which should be 1/3rd of the model’s volume.
Yes, you can conduct live testing inside the climatic chamber. For this purpose, we provide entry ports on the side of the test space.
The heat transfer from the specimen will not affect the test space temperature. However, customers must share such details of the specimen during the technical discussion with CME so that it is considered it while designing the chamber.
The standard rate of change of temperature (Ramp Rate) is 3 oC/Min. However, we also offer other ramp rates on demand such as 5 oC/Min, 10 oC/Min, 15 oC/Min & 20 oC/Min.
The chamber is equipped with an Ethernet port, which once connected enables remote access of the chamber from any part of the world through an IP address.
CME offers a high level of flexibility in all of its offering. Yes, we could customize a climatic chamber so that it can be integrated with other systems. For more details, visit our page for customised solutions.
The support engineers from CME will install the chambers and will train you to operate the chamber.
No, the chamber should not be tilted and always kept straight up. Please follow the guidelines mentioned in the chamber manual and if you have any query please call us at 8880007700 or drop an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Climatic chamber comes with levelling casters, which are made of high quality ABS resin and offer hassle-free mobility.
Definitely, our climatic chamber is covered under warranty, which is valid for 14 months from the date of supply or 12 months from the date of installations.
Our support is available across the globe. Customers can contact our support team over the phone, E-Mail or through our website. Recently we have also introduced a new support feature called “Pro-Active Support”, wherein the chamber alerts the customer about a potential snag way ahead of its occurrence!
