Our hands on Engineering Research and Development team builds quality into our JENSEN Marine products from the beginning by expertly designing each product from the ground up and validating all designs through extensive testing that is primarily conducted in our own on-site test lab. Therefore, JENSEN Marine Audio & Video products offer MORE durability and performance than you would expect from standard electronics.
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.
UV/Salt Fog Corrosive Exposure Chamber
Exterior components are subjected to accelerated UV exposure that equates to 5-7 years of actual outdoor exposure to assure you that your electronics will look great for many years. In addition, product and product components are subjected to dry/wet cycles of highly corrosive fog/mist to test for corrosion resistance and corrosion protection effectiveness.
The last thing you need is for your radio to quit due to accidental static shock. That’s why our products go through the extensive Electrostatic Discharge Test on all exposed control areas as well as I/O connections so they can withstand the most severe static build up. Shocking, isn’t it?
Severe electrical environments are relatively common mobile applications. We understand these environments and what it takes to protect electronics that will be exposed to them. That’s why all of our products include specific and significant front-end circuit protection and filtering that is proven to withstand the toughest electrical environments. The Load Dump Tests puts destructive pulses (spikes) to simulate the sudden disconnection of the battery from the alternator while the alternator is generating current to load the battery. Such Load Dump pulses are high energy pulses with a high potential of destruction ensuring that our electronics are protected.
DC Voltage Overstress
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.
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 we test for High humidity introduced at high-temp to test effectiveness of circuit corrosion protection (conformal coating).
High/Low Storage Temperature
Used to ensure powered components withstand temperature fluctuations.
Subjects externally mounted products to high pressure water by blasting the product with 1,300 psi at 6 inches.
Pushbutton/Hinge/Mechanism Durability Cycle
Life cycle robotic testing of all buttons and hinge mechanism for durability.
RF Performance Testing
RF performance is central to the user experience for many of our products. The RF Performance test ensures that our products keep clean signals in and the bad signals out, so that users are always left with a steady signal without outside interference. We not only test for high level RF performance during product design, but we also take a random sampling from each production lot and test it to ensure performance consistency. A battery of over 80 performance tests are conducted to analyze and validate RF and audio performance.
Inductive Load Switching
Tests product well above and below the average waveform to ensure that it can withstand the extreme fluctuations.
Reviews for the JENSEN AM/FM/USB/Bluetooth Compact 3.5" Round Waterproof Stereo with App Control
Bad set up system.
RatingCan't pair my phone with the Bluetooth, why is this so difficult ? The manual not helpful.
RatingI have the MS3A in a Robalo Cayman with two speakers and I was shocked at how great it sounds with only the two speakers. Connecting with Bluetooth required reading the manual but wasn't difficult at all. Contrary to Jensen's installation guide, the boat came from the factory with the radio wired to a constant power source and would sometimes come on by itself while sitting on the boat lift. Since correcting that and wiring to a switched power source, no issues at all. Compact size doesn't take up much dash space and looks good alongside other gauges. My only suggestion would be to offer a black matte finish on the trim ring, not just chrome.
I had the MS30 (without Bluetooth) in my last boat and enjoyed that one as well
Bluetooth connecting not explained well in manual
RatingI am having a heck of a time connecting my phone to this stereo via bluetooth. I have printed out a manual and found a how-to video on youtube. Neither of these processes were successful. My phone is new enough and updated and I have never had any issues connecting to other bluetooth devices. I have located another youtube video and I hope this one may hold some small step that the other explanations missed. I have degrees and I don't think my stupidity is the issue, but you never know.
Pain to set up!
RatingI am still trying to set this up to connect with my phone! So far it's a pain. Seems like it should be about like hooking Bluetooth to a car. Any rental car you get allows you to be hooked up with a few simple clicks. Why should a boat be different? Hoping to revise this review if/when I can get it connected.
