Take a step into the Product Reliability Lab where certified technicians test Daktronics products to ensure their quality, durability and performance. Since 2009, comprehensive testing systems done in the lab continue to provide much needed data to our engineers. We test Daktronics products more rigorously than any other manufacturer. In fact, some of our lab test equipment is similar to that used by the automobile and aerospace industries.
Before product release, Daktronics puts products through a variety of stress tests. Our lab technicians place entire video boards through a massive 4,500 cubic foot environmental chamber (Solar Thermal Simulation Area: 22' L x 11' H), in order to simulate extreme climate conditions, such as:
The Temperature/Humidity Chamber simulates worse-case environments to test component sensitivity towards humidity, corrosion and electrical property changes. This assures that product components are as tough as their displays, by undergoing:
This chamber ensures product durability by conducting unpowered thermal shock testing. In less than five seconds, products are transferred between hot and cold compartments.
To determine product functioning limits, the HALT chamber combines environmental variables, such as temperature shock and vibration, to stress products to the point of failure.
To test how well enclosures protect components, this chamber drenches display parts with high-pressure water jets to assure performance against moisture.
To gauge a component's capacity to withstand the corrosive effects of salty coastal air, this chamber punishes Daktronics products with a 5% salt solution at a sweltering 35° C (95° F).
Now that you understand the quality behind Daktronics products, visit the LED Learning Center to discover more about the individual components.
With the boom of cell signal demand, electromagnetic interference from large format LED displays can be a real challenge for outdoor applications if your display isn't tested properly. Download our white paper to learn more about how cell signal can be affected by large digital displays and how Daktronics designs and tests our anti-interference solution.
