Electrical safety and resistance testing of gearboxes

At a glance

Description

The test system is used for electrical safety testing (PE, IS, HV), resistance testing of the motor windings and the connection between the two housing parts. The tests are performed in a completely enclosed test rack. The test devices as well as the switching matrix are placed in housings on the test rack. The connection to the test devices is made via a customer-specific adapter cable. To perform the test, the operator places the test object – together with the workpiece carrier – in the test rack and adapts the adapter cable at the specified points. The test rack must be completely closed, which is monitored by a safety circuit. A temperature sensor is connected to the Burster Resistomat for temperature compensation of the resistance measurement. The test system is completely computer controlled. The operation of the system during the tests is computer controlled. By creating test plans, the test system can be adapted to new or changed products. The parameters of the test object and the tests are freely adjustable within predefined limits.

Semi-automated circulation system for testing cell contacting systems

At a glance

  • Elution® Software
  • Error-free assembly due to worker guidance
  • Continuity check
  • Insulation resistance test
  • High voltage test
  • Component marking with laser

Description

The semi-automated circulation system is composed of various stations through which the test object passes on a workpiece carrier via a conveyor belt. The first station is an insertion station where the test object is inserted, scanned and identified by an RFID system. The worker is guided through the assembly process by the Elution® software.
In the following test station the test object is again identified by means of an RFID system. The workpiece carrier is lifted and indexed, the test object is contacted from below via two contacting units. From above, the test object is also contacted via pneumatic contact pins at up to 36 test points. This is followed by a continuity, insulation resistance and high-voltage test.
The third station in the system is a laser station in which the test object is again identified by the RFID system, the workpiece carrier is lifted out and indexed. "Good" tested objects are lasered with a DataMatrixCode. The code is then counter-scanned in order to verify its contents.
A conveyor belt transports the test object to the unloading station. Here the test object is identified one last time by the RFID system. Final assembly activities are performed on "good" tested test objects, supported by the worker guidance of the Elution® software. "Bad" tested test objects are disposed of in a corresponding faulty parts box.

The washing machine is transported on a special workpiece carrier. An RFID system installed in the workpiece carrier ensures the identification of the washing machines in the station.

The system is extended by an AOI Robot-Vision system, in which a robot takes pictures of the oscillating system and the washing machine housing and automatically compares them with the reference images. Furthermore, the system is supplemented by a line audit, which enables long-term tests of the washing machines at four individual test stations.

Automatic function test of washing machine panels

At a glance

Description

The test system, designed as a turntable with 4 stations, is used for the complete functional testing of control panels for washing machines and dryers. The different tests are carried out fully automatically in the four segments. On the one hand, there is an insertion and removal station, where the control panel is inserted and manually contacted or removed by the employee. In the second station, an automatic vision check of the labeling for color and symbolism is performed in the background with the aid of a camera and corresponding evaluation software. In addition, the buzzer is checked for the correct frequency. In the next station, a robot simulates a human finger and checks the control panel for the function of the individual keys. If the panel passes all the test steps, a customer-specific label is automatically applied to the panel at a specific position in the next station. The label is then scanned automatically to verify the content of the Data Matrix code printed on the label. Finally, the control panel is manually removed from the test system at the insertion and removal station. The entire system is controlled by the Elution® software, to which the robot, the vision software and the label printer are subordinate.

Additionally, a measurement and evaluation of the light data of the test object is performed via an integrating sphere. At the test station, the data of the devices under test are read in directly by means of a manual barcode scanner. This identifies the DUT type and the test program loads the associated test plan data and is ready to start. Mains contacting is carried out manually by the operator. In the test bench, the protective conductor test, insulation resistance measurement, high voltage test, leakage current test, electrical power measurement, light test, visual tests are performed. All generated measured values, test plan data and user data are stored and managed centrally on the system computer. The operator can adjust the test system to his ergonomic needs by means of electrical height adjustment.
