Vancouver, BC-based Xantrex Technology has launched its own comprehensive internal quality testing system called "H.A.L.T.' for Highly Accelerated Life Testing.
The H.A.L.T. product evaluation process takes place in a special environmental chamber which allows the company to rapidly overstress product in harsh operating environments. Products are subjected to extreme thermal and vibration stress environments including combination of thermal and vibration stress cycles. The data from this evaluation is used for deep safety and quality analysis and subsequently used to rectify any potential software, firmware or hardware design and manufacturing issues that may creep up in extreme conditions outside of product specifications.
"At Xantrex, we conceive, design and test our products in house,' said Spyros Thomas, Xantrex Vice President of Quality and Customer Service. "We take product safety and quality extremely seriously and firmly believe that having our own internal quality and safety protocols such as those regimented by H.A.L.T. helps us produce the best, most reliable products for our highly valued customers. We believe our own internal H.A.L.T. gives us a distinctive edge in the fiercely competitive AC power products market.'
