Pumpkin's TVAC chamber is designed to be a lights-out, 24x7 test facility with remote access to maximize in-chamber test plans even in the wee hours of the morning. It's equipped with a wide range of pre-existing thermocouple, fiber, Ethernet, RF, GPIO/power and GNSS feedthroughs, and has over 1000W of programmable PSUs at its disposal. Data is fully logged in real time to an InfluxDB database with concurrent Grafana visualizations provided.
