    Product Research


    RV Receiver: The Jensen AWM975 is a wall-mount DVD receiver that has been specifically designed and built for recreational vehicle use. The AWM975 has past numerous tests to make sure it stands up to recreation vehicle usage.

    • Temperature/Vibration Chamber: Long-Duration product exposure to constant random frequency operational vibration and non-operational vibration to simulate rugged road conditions. Simultaneous temperature cycle and vibration exposure are also conducted for additional data that is relevant to detecting potential material/component weaknesses and calculating product life-expectancy.
    • Reverse Polarity: The Reverse Polarity test uses a car battery to test durability of the product when the (+) and (-) cables are accidentally reversed.
    • Power Line Noise Rejection: Test throws noise onto the signal and simulates product reaction to alternator whine.
    • Simulated Crank Start Voltage: Used to test electronics depreciation and altercations when vehicle is turned on.
    • High/Low Operating Voltage Test: Both tests used to ensure electronics consistency when vehicle battery goes below or above the normal 12V.  Product must remain operational throughout the test.
    • Shorted I/O: Ensures that product will function when inputs and outputs are connected improperly to the product.
    • High/Low Operating Temperature: Long-Duration product exposure to operational temperature extremes and rapid temperature cycles that are experienced in outdoor mobile applications. In addition Jensen tests for High humidity introduced at high-temp to test effectiveness of circuit corrosion protection (conformal coating).
    • Pushbutton/Hinge/Mechanism Durability Cycle: Life cycle robotic testing of all buttons and hinge mechanism for durability.
    • RF Performance Testing: The RF Performance test ensures that the Jensen product keeps clean signals in and the bad signals out, so that users are always left with a steady signal without outside interference.
