inTEST Thermal Solutions Launches Eco-Friendly Electronics Thermal Test Systems

Consumes Less Energy With High Performance and Quiet Operation

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2015) - inTEST Corporation (NYSE MKT: INTT), an independent designer, manufacturer and marketer of thermal management products and semiconductor automatic test equipment (ATE) interface solutions, today announced the introduction of an environmentally friendly series of Temptronic® ThermoStream® temperature forcing systems that use 50% less energy with very low audible noise by inTEST Thermal Solutions (iTS). The ECO Series temperature test systems operate on a low, 20-amp circuit and incorporate the Company's proprietary WhisperStream® technology, providing quiet, smooth-sounding operation at 56 dBA. The ECO Series features precise temperatures with fast transitions from -80 to 225°C for effective testing and conditioning of electronic components, boards, and modules. Systems are available for 50 and 60Hz operation.

The ECO Series is designed with the laboratory environment in mind where audible noise and heat dissipation are of concern. Jim Pelrin, president of iTS, commented, "These portable systems are capable of ultra-low temperatures without the use of Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) or Liquid Carbon Dioxide (LCO2), making them ideal for any temperature test environment. Additionally, the systems provide remote communications and set up, touch screen operation, and a wide-reaching thermal head for easy positioning over the test device."

The ECO systems complement the performance of the industry standard ATS ThermoStream® product line.

Robert E. Matthiessen, inTEST Corporation's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the Company's ongoing diversification strategy of its Thermal Products segment into non-semiconductor growth markets. "Our long-term objective is to grow and evolve inTEST Corporation into a broad-based industrial test company as we continue to execute on our differentiated product strategy. By leveraging our capabilities, we are optimally positioned to identify next-generation solutions and further develop markets addressed by inTEST Thermal Solutions."
