Multi-function-tester with modular OTP Design
Multi-function-tester with modular OTP Design for Chemical Analytics
Multi-function-tester, based on the LXinstruments OTP2 system platform. The system is utilized for assembly and final testing as well as calibrating measurement devices for chemical analytics in a high mix / medium volume environment.
Special emphasis was placed on the exceptional metrological performance of the system. Once some central instruments have been calibrated, it is possible for the customer to perform a partly automated calibration by means of a calibration adapter and corresponding software.
The adapter interface is based on DIN 41612 connectors plus single connectors, e. g. for RF channels; it is compatible with existing systems, which are due for replacement.
Besides the fully functional test system described above, we implemented a series of smaller, compatible systems based on the same system architecture. These systems are entirely based on the LXinstruments software suite.
The customer is involved in the further development of our software platform as a development partner and beta tester.
For this system, we implemented a comprehensive suite of self-test and calibration software, based on the LXinstruments software suite. All product-related test results as well as all measurement data captured during calibration are managed via a relational database (MySQL).
The database interfaces were enhanced in order to allow flexible storage of product characteristics as well as other product data, and for easy integration into the customer's process environment.
