The control unit reads the data collected by the acquisition boxes, stores the test data on a data- base, identifies the product model by identification code, and then compares the test data with the reference parameters for such model, in order to decide whether the unit has successfully passed the test or not.
The Pass/Reject result is displayed on the screen and stored on the database. All data can be traced in order to comply with the ISO 9000 standard framework.
CAR1000 is available on the following versions :
- Moving Carousel, suitable for mass production lines of domestic appliances
- Batch Test
In the Batch Test version the products are tested in batches. The acquisition boxes are mounted in a fixed position, usually on a wall, and the items to test are placed next to them. Once the test cycle is completed the products are removed and a new batch is connected to the test system. The acquisition boxes send the data to the control station via RS422 serial link. This version is more suitable for small and medium production lines.
