What is US Military Standard 810G certified?
MIL-STD-810G is a U.S. military specification that guarantees a level of durability for a piece of technology. Specifically, it means the equipment has gone through a series of 29 tests. These put the phone up against shock, vibration, humidity, heat, cold, gunfire shock, humidity, and more.
Why is this specific Military Standard so popular?
The MIL-STD-810G addresses a broad range of environmental conditions. It consists of Test Methods, each testing to various parameters. This is why companies across all industries turn to the MIL-STD-810G to validate their products as ruggedized.
What does the "G" stand for in MIL-STD-810G?
The letter that follows the Military Standard depicts the current revision. There is no particular time-frame that must pass for a revision to occur but it does go in alphabetical order.
What is MIL-STD-810G drop test standards?
The MIL-STD-810G* drop test consists in testing the resistance to shock of all the equipment surface: all faces, edges, and corners. In total, 26 drops from about 4 feet (phones, laptops) are necessary to perform the complete drop test. The “drop test” is also called “shock” tests in certain documents.
What tests are included in MIL STD 810G testing?
The Test Methods of MIL-STD-810G Test Method 500 - Low Pressure (Altitude) Test Method 501 - High Temperature Test Method 502 - Low Temperature Test Method 503 - Temperature Shock Test Method 504 - Contamination by Fluids Test Method 505 - Solar Radiation (Sunshine) Test Method 506 - Rain Test Method 507 - Humidity
