The automatic test equipment checks electrical, electronic or pneumatic components, which are manufactured in large numbers, for function and compliance with technical specifications.
The automatic tester for production parts consists out of three components:
- The mechanics of bunkers with supply, loading and linear or in carousels arranged test stations
- Sensory and stimulation (measuring electronics), contacted with the device under test DUT, and
- the Industrial PC (IPC) executing the testing program.
The software (often created in LabVIEW / CVI) asks the user the necessary control parameters for the test sequence, for the sorting and reporting as well as the quality thresholds.
Safety limits can be set additionally with the hardware, so that always a safe test run is possible even without software control.
The control of the individual components is performed by high-performance process modules.
