Our most rugged Lucius & Baer™ Rugged Computer Systems have been designed to meet the requirements from MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F and MIL-STD-1275D. These specifications provide a broad range of environmental scenarios, where we select those, from whom we know, that they meet most of our customer expectations in respect to their typical applications.

Typically, those scenarios are covering temperature, humidity, shock & vibration, drop and altitude (MIL-STD-810G) as well as EMI, EMC and Electrical Safety (MIL-STD-461F & MIL-STD-1275D). Furthermore, Lucius & Baer™ Rugged Computer Systems have to pass tests to confirm to the regulations of CE and FCC.

Test Locations

Lucius & Baer™ is able to perform a broad range of tests in-house covering climatic tests (temperature and humidity) with 2 climatic chambers enabling also temperature shock tests as well as shock & vibrations tests with an own analyze system from Spectral Dynamics.

Beside the in-house capabilities, Lucius & Baer™ cares long year partnerships with dedicated test houses like IABG and Dr. Schreiber to perform altitude, fungus, EMI, EMC and CE/FCC certification and confirmation tests.

Synergy Effects on Non- or Semi-Rugged Products

Beside the Rugged Computer Systems, Lucius & Baer™ also develops Computer Systems for semi-rugged or even non-rugged applications. Though this semi- and non-rugged Computer Systems are not certified to the complete range of full rugged systems requirements, they do participate directly on the design and test experience from those full rugged systems, helping Lucius & Baer ™ to provide you with the most reliable solutions also in semi- and non-rugged markets.
