Temperature limits

Post by Rich »

With our unusually high temperatures I decided to revisit the ambient temperature limits for the various electronic gizmos I have. It turns out that we're at the ragged edge for some of them, 95 degF being a semi-common limit in some sense or other. After that, the limits I see are generally 55 degC (131 degF). Not an immediate problem, though I could see that happening inside the cabin of a parked plane with closed canopy and no steps taken to curb sunlight streaming in.
