POCSTARS MiniServer Passes Stringent Reliability Tests
POCSTARS, a world leading Push-to-talk over Cellular (PoC) communications solution provider, works with Morlab, a professional test and certification laboratory, to subject the MiniServer, POCSTARS’ PoC server, to a series of stringent tests. Proven to be reliable in extreme conditions, MiniServer was certified with multiple directives.
At Morlab, 20 randomly selected units of MiniServer went through high temperature and high humidity storage test, low temperature storage test, high and low temperature limit test and Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) test from September 26 to October 15. “POCSTARS is the first PoC solution provider having its servers going through such extreme tests. It shows our confidence in the products reliability. We are proud of supplying quality products to our partners across the world,” said Louis Rong, President of POCSTARS.
· High temperature and high humidity storage test: The MiniServer was stored at a temperature of 45°C and humidity of 95% for 4 hours, and then powered on and off for 1,000 times. It operated without faults for the following 24 hours.
· Low temperature storage test: The MiniServer was stored at a temperature of -20°C for 24 hours, started at 0°C for 20 times, and then powered on and off for 1,000 times. It operated without faults for the following 24 hours.
· High and low temperature limit test: The MiniServer operated at a temperature of -20°C for 12 hours, and then another 12 hours at 55°C. It operated without faults throughout 24 hours.
· MTBF test: The MiniServer operated at a temperature of 55℃ and humidity 95% for 318 hours, equivalent to 26,280 hours (or 3 Years) operation at a temperature of 25℃ and humidity 65%. It ran for 318 hours without fault.
POCSTARS MiniServer exceled in the four tests. It complies with EN55032:2015/AC:2016, EN55035:2017, EN61000-3-3:2013, EN61000-3-2:2014 and EN62368-1:2014+A11:2017, and fulfills the test requirements of EMC directive (2014/13/EU) and LVD directive.
