This "drop tester" imposes shock impulses of controlled amplitude and duration. Peak values can be as high as 100,000 g, with durations as short as 0.05 ms. A typical test condition for drop testing of electronic assemblies is a half-sine impulse of 1500 g for 0.5 ms. The machine provides continuity monitoring at nanosecond resolution in accordance with testing standards and industry practices. A smaller, Research Ops-built drop tower is also available.
