PC-based Universal PCB Test System

June 13, 2013
Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the System 8 Diagnostic Solution Plus - a unique, versatile, easy-to-use PCB test system that uses a selection of CD-drive-size modules to create a PC-driven PCB test station.

The System 8 Diagnostic Solution Plus from Saelig Company is a versatile, easy-to-use PCB test system that uses a selection of CD-drive-size modules to create a PC-driven PCB test station. The System 8 Diagnostic Solution Plus, which can be built in a PC case or 19" rack-mounted, is based on a comprehensive set of test instruments for complete testing and fault-finding needs on almost any kind of PCB. Equally at home with analog or digital PCBs, the System 8 Diagnostic Solution Plus incorporates a full range of test instruments in one compact box, with various vailable test methods, to create a cost-effective solution for electronics faultfinding across a wide range of industries, including aircraft and transportation maintenance, PCB production houses, manufacturing, etc.

The System 8 Diagnostic Solution Plus offers 64 digital and 24 analog test channels to provide a variety of test and measurement techniques to track down the most elusive faults, even on unpowered boards. Comparing results with a known good board with automated-sequence fault-finding procedures, fault diagnosis becomes possible by minimally-trained staff. System 8 Software can be configured to guide users step-by-step through a test procedure, with custom-annotated picture images, instructions, and attached datasheets to give quick Pass/Fail results. This is much faster and more economical than using traditional oscilloscopes, meters and other bench test methods. A simple starter system can be built with one or two test modules, but this can be expanded as future needs arise. A typical System 8 Diagnostic Solution Plus configuration can use a combination of any of the following modules:

·     Board Fault Locator

·     Analog IC Tester

·     Multiple Instrument Station

·     Advanced Test Module

·     Advanced Matrix Scanner

·     Triple Output Variable Power Supply

Many repair centers around the world are equipped with the System 8 Diagnostic Solution Plus, offering optimal fault coverage and maintenance capabilities to a wide range of customers. The System 8 Diagnostic Solution Plus is frequently the test instrument of choice in the areas of telecommunications, transportation, and automotive manufacturing.
