Explosive Atmosphere Testing

MIL-STD-810, Method 511 • RTCA/DO-160, Section 9

Explosive Atmosphere Testing is required when a fuel/air mixture is in the presence of an electrical device. This type of testing entails exposing a test item in its operational condition to a fuel/air environment. Testing is performed at the item's high operating temperature, as well as its high and site level altitudes, in order to determine its safety of operation when exposed to an explosive environment.

Dayton T. Brown Inc. also has the ability to remotely actuate mechanical devices on the item, like switches and knobs, during the testing process.
