Testing and Certifications


Samtec’s products are tested to or beyond industry standards to ensure quality and performance in military and aerospace applications.

severe environment tested

Severe Environment Testing (SET) is a Samtec initiative to test products beyond typical industry standards and specifications, many set forth by common requirements for rugged / harsh environment industries. These products undergo additional testing, including 70,000 ft. altitude testing, to ensure they are more than suitable for military, space, automotive, industrial and other extreme applications.

Samtec’s SET products are approved for NASA Class D missions that require high-reliability, quick-turn and cost-effective solutions for LEO and GEO satellites, SmallSats, CubeSats and other space exploration applications.
