The Genix Test Unit provides a means of performing a number of electrical and communications tests on products at assembly stations during manufacture.
It’s a system designed for testing a range of electronic components within sub-assemblies, such as bumpers, spoilers and door modules, immediately following assembly.
The test unit has a high I/O count supporting a wide range of simultaneous tests and includes PLC interfaces for test control, result capture and handshaking. It’s capable of providing both advanced continuity and functionality testing via LIN, CAN and PSI5.
It can be mounted in a wide variety of locations within the manufacturing environment. Plugable screw terminal blocks for I/O and power are provided with each test unit. The Genix Sensor Test Unit can be used in production line testing in the lab or other industry environments.
Typically, test results are fed back to the PLC. Custom handheld devices can be provided for monitoring of test results. Alternatively, test results can be monitored via our real-time systems interface software, VISUALCONNX.
All test output lines, such as voltage and current outputs and supplies are protected against short circuit to 0V, such as might occur with a damaged harness or connector.
16 measurement channels are available allowing for all equipment within a modern automotive bumper, spoiler or door module to be tested simultaneously.
Ease of use
Units are provided with a predefined set of test sequences which are requested from the PLC via the digital inputs to the test unit. Custom test sequences can be provided on request.
The GTU allows sub-assemblies to be tested at the end of the line within a production environment, either directly from an assembly station or other test bench. This allows both automotive Tier 1 organisations and OEMs to ensure the correct operation of vehicle electronics throughout the manufacturing process.
This allows organisations to mitigate against the risk of faulty equipment which may potentially cause production line delays or commercial recalls to be initiated in the market place. It can also assist with the manufacture of personalised vehicles which may demand custom modifications of sub-assemblies.
