Phobos - TVAC2
Intlvac’s Phobos TVAC2 is a versatile space simulation system. Like all in the TVAC Series, the vacuum chamber is constructed from 304 stainless steel. The chamber is designed to provide an extensive environmental test complex to simulate the outer space and varying thermal conditions. It allows for a variety of parts to be tested in a high vacuum less than 10-6 torr, which is a dry pumped and clean environment.
The system is controlled by Intlvac’s Autosys PLC controller. The controls would be housed in a separate controls rack. The controller handles automatic pump down, venting, temperature control, power failure recovery, and interlocks for safe operation. User interface is through a LabView computer workstation with a 19” digital flat screen monitor. All parameters are logged and can be viewed in the built-in graphical log viewer or offline in a spreadsheet program.
