This webinar series takes the viewer through the history of the influences of Electro-chemical Migration (ECM) and the evolving use of Surface Insulation Resistance Testing
(SIR) that has been developed over the past 25 years by GEN3 and its association with the British National Physical Laboratory. (NPL - www.npl.co.uk/).
Together, GEN3 and NPL have created the standard that has now been in widespread use around the world since the turn of the millennium.
It was only in 2017 that, together with our customer, Robert Bosch, we were able to demonstrate the insufficiency that has been the ROSE test accept/reject of 1.56 µg/cm2 NaCl equivalence, unchanged since the mid-1970’s.
GEN3 “wrote the book” on the subject and have played a major part in the creation of four ground-breaking test standards published between 2019 and 2021 that set the scene for “Objective Evidence” and its widespread influence throughout the world of electronics, whether in the high reliability arena of Space, Medical, Automotive or general Industrial applications.
GEN3 are manufacturers of measurement instruments including AutoSIR®, AutoCAF®, CM Series-Contaminometer®, the world’s only combined ROSE and PICT closed-loop tester that has unique 6 Sigma verification.
