How Autotest has redefined the power supply testing industry.
Autotest has redefined the power supply testing industry. One stop shop with Autotest will give you solutions, regardless of the scope or the type of your testing needs.
These are some of the solutions Autotest can provide:
Advice and development of testing strategies: we will help you figure out the extent and depth of your testing that makes economic and technical sense for your particular application, from standard, instrument-based solutions to extremely specialized, high end customized testing systems. Autotest works with its customers to develop the appropriate test methods and test hardware to meet the needs of the application. Some of these applications include non-standard, innovative solutions that may not have been addressed by other vendors or by in-house engineering.
Test hardware: Autotest has the manufacturing capabilities to build special hardware in its own shop or to acquire the best combination of instruments and components to integrate a solution.
Software: Autotest proprietary software APG for Windows™ is the most flexible and customizable software in the industry. APG serves as a friendly interface with any hardware component and allows users to program and design testing procedures to meet any number of different testing needs. Autotest has the ability to drill down to the source code to write special applications to meet very non-standard requirements. This is possible because Autotest owns and controls the source code of its software. APG for Windows is a set of programs that do different things. One of them is a questionnaire that helps customers initialize the application and design tests.
Application fixturing: application fixturing can be created to provide special interfaces to meet the customer’s needs, either low volume engineering or high volume production. Autotest can provide the optimized and customized methods for the unit under test (UUT) to interface with the test system. This might include cables and connectors, better nail fixtures, special interface boxes that contain customer proprietary hardware necessary to test the product. This service can be provided for a fully assembled end product of for sub-assemblies that go into the end product. These could be in the form of racks, chassis, open frame power supplies, or printed circuit boards. Automation: specialized high-volume factory integration of test software and data collection as well as automation to handle high-volume production lines.
All of these unique approaches to testing can be created for special applications as well as standard applications.
