Exatron offers a wide range of thermal test solutions from bench top hand test to high-volume production

Exatron offers a wide range of thermal test solutions from bench top hand test to high-volume production. Their building block design method allows easy integration of thermal test solutions with all Exatron handlers.
The exact same thermal test heads, sockets, and preheat features can be used in everything from the PET-5 Hand Test Work Station to the Model 8000 automated production handler. Guaranteed -55°C to +155°C working range (-75°C to +175°C hardware capability).

New! Thermal IC Test System NOTE: New Models with new features and greater on or off handler integration. Coming Soon!

An Exatron advanced design direct contact refrigeration thermal testing system. When a cheap electronic Peltier is just not good enough, and when your thermal stream forced air type is too expensive, too difficult, or freezes your board, creates static, or other issues, it’s time to consider something new. Exatron’s thermal test system provides a great new standard of virtually frost free high performance with only middle-of-the-road costs and no expensive fluids to buy or spill.
