You will need an insertion / return loss test system to go along with our chamber to do these tests. We recommend the Optical Component Environmental Test System from JDS Uniphase. It is ready to work with an ESPEC environmental chamber, making the perfect optical components environmental test system for long term testing to Telcordia (Bellcore) standards GR-326, 1209, 1221.
All the required tests can be done by our Platinous model

For test 220.127.116.11, we don't recommend our benchtop series due to the requirement for heat-up as fast as possible (3.75°C/min. minimum) in order to create condensation. For Platinous models, a special, but inexpensive modification is required.
ESPEC North America introduces our new 4 cubic foot chamber with fast change rates of 15°C/min.
Our high performance Global-N series now include 16 cu. ft. volume models.
