2 Tester

There are two different sd cards one has a 30 min cycle and the other is a 50 min cycle. If the bed has been sitting for 2 days or longer use the 50 min test. If the bed has been sitting for less than two days use the 30 min cycle. After the test is complete inspect the beds for bubbling or silvering. If the bed passes the tester, it is ready for use in the production line or to send to the store. Temperature should maintain 60C during testing period of 15 min, then it will hold at 110C for the remainder of test.
