Summary of EIA 364-32 Temperature Cycling of Connectors

The purpose of this EIA thermal shock compliance test is to simulate the worst probable conditions of storage, transportation and application. This EIA test is only pertaining to high and low temperatures.

Separate test chambers are used for extreme temperature conditions. The air temperature of both chambers are held at each of the extreme temperatures. This is done by means of circulation and sufficient hot or cold chamber thermal capacity.

EIA 364-32 Laboratory Compliance Testing Procedures

Specified measurements are made prior to the first cycle and after completing the final cycle. Before cycling, the combined mass of the assembly to be tested is determined. Furthermore, this mass will include contacts and sealing rings. Connector accessories attached to the connector, and any wire within the envelope boundaries of the connector are also included.

The test specimen is placed with respect to the airstream. There must be no obstructions to the flow of air across and around the specimen. Mounting is required only when specifically mentioned. Lastly, specimens are not subjected to forced circulating air while being transferred from one chamber to another.
