5 September 2011 : Practical HALT & HASS

A 2-day training course on HALT & HASS is now available.  The course, "Practical HALT & HASS" starts with an introduction to reliability engineering to position HALT & HASS as complementary reliability engineering tools applicable to the development and production stages.  Course topics have been selected to show not only “what” HALT & HASS are, but also "how” to perform HALT & HASS.  The course includes a "hands-on" workshop where delegates will have the opportunity to perform a practical HALT on an electronic product.

29 August 2008 :
HALT laboratory

The first commercial HALT & HASS test laboratory in South Africa
was opened on 23 July 2008 by Dr Gregg Hobbs,
the inventor of HALT & HASS.  The laboratory is equipped with
a TC-2.5 Panther Time Compression System from
HALT & HASS Systems Corporation. 
The chamber has a 750 x 750 mm shaker table, meaning that relatively products
can be tested, or several smaller items can be tested simultaneously.  Clients have to supply their own test equipment
to monitor product functionality during testing.

Companies interested in performing HALT (or simply exploring the application of HALT on their products), can contact
Albertyn Barnard
for more details.  Companies are also welcome to arrange a site visit for their personnel (including a
short lecture on HALT & HASS and demonstration of the HALT facility).
