ControlArt Tropical Cabinet HC 100
The cabinet is developed and designed as the original Volvo Tropical Cabinet to conform the test standards from Volvo Group, STD 423-0018 and Volvo Car, VCS 1027,33759. It is essential for these tests that the cabinet design is kept to the original format and type of materials etcetera.
It is also possible to perform the different test in the ISO 6270-2 standard although the CH, constant temperature, and AT, fully condensation with temperature change, is possible to perform fully automatic but the AHT, changing condensation and temperature, can be performed semi-automatic. This means for the AHT cycle the the door periodically opened.
