Job Description Summary

Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) aims to reveal any hidden defects and a high need of reliability, by applying accelerated environment stresses, such as vibrations or thermal cycling, to a product, using various testing procedures to accomplish this. ESS testing helps to prepare products for their real-world applications, so the testing conditions will often be the most extreme which the product may face in the real world. ESS tests can expose component failures. Thermal testing may find faults related to seal and gasket failures, insufficient wiring insulation and other component-level defects.
