Abstract

When electronic equipment is used in harsh environments with long expected lifetime, there is a need to understand that environment more in detail. This situation is today a reality for many application areas including the automotive sector, heavy industry, the defense sector, and more. To fully understand the working environment, a unit has been developed to monitor physical data such as temperature, vibration, humidity, condensation, etc., to be used in the product development phase for new products. This paper presents the underlying principles for the ESU (Environmental Supervision Unit) and details on the design.
