Foresite C3 – Critical Cleanliness Control®
The C3 is unique among electronics cleanliness testers – it remains the only tester on the market that indicates whether a specific, critical area of a PCBA is clean.
Introducing the C3/C.I. (C3 Corrosivity Index™ Model)
The new C3/C.I. tracks the cleanliness of critical areas of your electronics over time with the Foresite C3 Corrosivity Index – a single test result that can be used to monitor and control manufacturing processes (and incoming component cleanliness).
How the C3 Works
Simply select the components and/or areas of circuitry that are most sensitive and prone to contamination-related performance and/or reliability issues and test an area that is 0.1 in2, or even smaller.
The C3 quickly provides feedback as to whether potentially detrimental residues, frequently from manufacturing processes, are present. The programmed test cycle is easily controlled with minimal training.
Use for Extraction, Testing, or Both
The C3 can be used right in the electronics assembly area. In addition, product site-specific samples extracted by the C3 can be sent to a lab for analysis to identify the contaminants and measure their concentrations.
