WHAT ELECTRONIC DEVICES FACE IN THE AUTOMOBILE ENVIRONMENT

This article speaks to the problem of automotive environmental information for the electrical designer. It describes tests that will lead to a better understanding of the conditions electrical components and systems are put through in an automobile. Some automotive environments that must be taken into consideration in the electrical design process include climatic; temperature, humidity, immersion, salt spray, dust, gravel bombardment, altitude and oils and chemicals, dynamic environment; vibration, electric and magnetic environment; power line anomalies and external fields. Each of these in turn is different in different parts of the automobile and electrical devices must be designed with this in mind. Tables and figures of data are included.
