Power Breezer TITAN is MIL-STD-810H certified!
What is MIL-STD?
The U.S. Department of Defense has military standards which they enforce to confirm that products are compliant with standardization requirements they create. This helps to ensure the commonality of products which are used in military environments. This is important to maintain consistency and safeguards against equipment inefficiency, safety hazards, and failure while in use. This can apply to extreme environmental conditions.
Test methods used for MIL-STD-810 certification usually includes mechanical shocks, vibration testing, temperature tests, low pressure tests, and humidity tests. Others can include fungus, explosives, and salt fog.
MIL-STD-810H is the latest revision of MIL-STD-810 and includes changes from MIL-STD-810G. It’s important to know that mechanical shock, which is a widely used method for testing, underwent extensive changes for 810H and does not include line revision indicators.
Important Note: The tests listed in this article are not a reflection of results for specific Power Breezer products. For details about individual tests and results for specific products, speak to our sales team.
