Harsh Environments

Harsh Environments Resource Center

The world is a tough place for electronics. Dust, marine environments, underground applications, electromagnetic interference, extremes of temperature and humidity – all of these things can cause electronics to fail. To combat these, TTI carries a full line of durable components developed to perform in extreme conditions such as the heat and corrosion found at the bottom of an oil well or the temperature cycles and vibration in a jet engine.

These high-reliability components, often certified to surpass military or space level specifications are manufactured to meet standards such as NEMA ratings and the IP Code (IEC 60529), giving engineers the peace of mind that the component they need will do its job, on the job. So take some pressure off your next design – call a TTI product specialist at 1.800.CALL.TTI and learn how our broad and deep inventory takes the heat.
