Custom Functional Test Fixtures: Mobile and Universal Systems

mobile universal testing for industryThe security and surveillance industry uses a variety of test systems and integration solutions to carry out functional performance testing. By spending money on testing and verification to make sure their products are secure and compliant with regulations, manufacturers may gain an advantage in a cutthroat market. It is essential to put video cameras through thorough testing. Your decision to adopt a universal test system, a test-specific substitute, or even a mobile test station solution will depend on your needs and the requirements that must be met to meet industry standards. If customers are certain that your security and surveillance equipment has undergone rigorous testing, they will be more inclined to purchase it, which will greatly enhance the reputation of your company.

Universal Test System Designs

It is essential to guarantee the reliability and consistency of a security camera while assessing its efficacy, such as a Closed Circuit Television system (CCTV). The creation and growth of test systems and integration solutions have been required in order to fulfill the requirements of evolving technologies, improve repeatability, and meet strict resolution, functionality, range, and sensitivity criteria. Universal test systems may enable precise testing procedures, expansion opportunities, and cost reductions for items with similar configurations. This is crucial for having accessible specialized test solutions in an industry where technology needs are continually changing.

The front slide-out rack shelving for easy instrument removal and routine calibration, as well as built-in quick access to all other internal resources, are key features of the universal test systems provided by EMC Technologies. Small personality daughter cards used for communication between each part type or family and the testing station allow for easy replacement of the central fixture receiver backplane fixture. We use soft tie-downs and a clean wire harnessing system to provide rapid access and growth requirements during testing. Our universal test systems use LabVIEW software operating on the IEEE 488 interface for instrument connection.

Mobile Test Solutions for Industry

The use of mobile test systems and integration, as opposed to universal test systems, has some significant differences. The modular electrical and mechanical interfaces, a computer, a monitor, and test interfaces are included in the design of the portable testing device. Utilizing our internal network and fiber optic capabilities, we frequently employ “off the shelf” parts and components to suit the testing requirements of our clients. By creating our hardware and software simultaneously to meet time, test, and cost constraints, we are able to provide our clients a wide variety of test solutions at more affordable costs.

While switching from benchtop to rack-based testing stations may offer advantages for some clients, we make it a point to approach every new client on an individual basis, identifying their unique needs and creating personalized test solutions to help them accomplish their goals. It is typical practice for new products to share the same test resources as their older equivalents in an effort to save test costs and expedite test development times. Customers can select from a number of test-specific stations, each of which has its own set of special capabilities, depending on whether they need stations that are EMI/RF/EMC compliant, desire active and passive electronic loads and load simulators, or need product/component handlers/motion stations. We are able to offer a wide range of sensor stations, including video, non-contact, infrared, laser, and barcode, depending on the needs of the customer.
