Altitude : 10 to 1700 hPa

The purpose of altitude testing is to determine the ability of components, equipment or other products to function or withstand variations in atmospheric pressure. These tests are most often associated with low temperature conditions; they are carried out mainly on aeronautical and aerospace equipment.
