Custom IC Test Sockets DC RF Low and High Temperature from Exatron

Thermal Bench Test Solutions Specifications


Specifications & Data Sheets



The next generation of Prototype Engineering Thermal Work Stations (PET) designed for the hand testing of individual electronic devices under controlled conditions. Designed to replace conventional thermal stream forced air test systems, and featuring Exatron's direct contact Wide Range Thermal Head (WRTH) system.  These are fully designed and manufactured in the USA by Exatron, San Jose, California. Exatron, serving the electronics industry since 1972.

The PET-4 and PET-5 are each available in two base models, a manual (M) workstation and a computerized (C) workstation.

One may be just right for you.

Prototype Engineering Thermal Work Stations PET-4 and PET-5, designed to replace conventional thermal stream forced air test systemsPrototype Engineering Thermal Work Stations replaces thermal stream forced air
Manual Model PET-4M: PET-4 M (Manual Work Station): Manual buttons toggle WRTH left/right and up/down motion. Manually adjusted air pressure control. No computer or software required. The PET-4 features Exatron's direct contact Wide Range Thermal Head (WRTH) allowing a full working temperature range of -55°C to +155°C (-75°C to +175°C hardware capability).
Computerized Model PET-4C: PET-4 C (Computerized Work Station): WRTH raises/lowers automatically over the test socket with the push of a button. Added cylinder moves WRTH side to side. Dual start switches requires two hands to start the test. Requires PC or laptop with 2 unused USB2 ports. (Sold separately) Robust automation software: Set and monitor temperature. Control soak timer. Start test switch and pass/fail indicator. Control test socket pressure. (Requires regulator, sold separately). Test and temperature data log standard. Intuitive diagnostic and service screens.
Specifications: PET-4 and chiller: IC test temperature test system Size PET-4: 14" (36cm) W, 18" (46cm) D, 24" (61cm) H. Chiller: 15" (38cm) W, 16.5" (51cm) D, 18" (53cm) H. Power 120 or 240 VAC, single phase

Manual Model PET-5M: PET-5 M (Manual Work Station): Manual buttons toggle WRTH left/right and up/down motion. Manually adjusted air pressure control. No computer or software required. The PET-5 temperature thermal test system mounts directly to nearly any test head or DUT board and features Exatron’s direct contact Wide Range Thermal Head (WRTH) allowing a full working temperature range of -55°C to +155°C (-75°C to +175°C hardware capability). There are two base models. The PET-5M (Manual Work Station) and the PET-5C (Computerized Work Station).
Computerized Model PET-5C: PET-5 C (Computerized Work Station): WRTH raises/lowers automatically over the test socket with the push of a button. Added cylinder moves WRTH side to side. Dual start switches requires two hands to start the test. Requires PC or laptop with 2 unused USB2 ports. (Sold separately) Robust automation software: Set and monitor temperature.

Shared Features: Wide Range Thermal Head (WRTH).Test and Temperature Test Systems -55°C to +155°C minimum working temperature range. (-75°C to +175°C hardware capability) +/-0.5 degree temperature control. No fluids required. (See WRTH data sheet for details.) Built-in purge cover for thermal head and test socket. Allows placement/removal of devices without thermal head having to heat/cool to room temperature. Greatly reduces down time between tests. Purge requires dry, clean air. (Air dryer sold separately) Includes on set of thermal head tooling, designed to match a specific device and test socket. Attached chiller sits on floor behind or on the side. 6 ft (2 m) hose runs from chiller to PET-5. Bench-top model available. Meets or exceeds all known ESD specifications. Built-in ESD wrist strap attach points. Built-in quick-disconnect air fitting for optional vacuum wand.
