ATI’s software interface combined with the hardware needed for a given customer test requirement provides a simplified and cost effective solution.
This configuration can replace the need for several different independent pieces of test equipment each having their own unique operator interface.
Our software allows the customer to create test templates. These templates define the various tests to be conducted as well as the order in which they are conducted. When a new model limit file is created, the appropriate template is selected therefor defining the tests that will be done for a particular model as well as the order in which they will be performed.
Many models can use the same template design, the difference being that each model has its own maximum and/or minimum acceptance criteria for each defined test.
Our Modular Test Software is consistent across our entire product line. The program is simply modified based on the product being tested, the types of tests being performed, and the customers' specifications.
This consistency in interface and operation allows entry-level operators to be easily cross-trained on different types of ATI supplied testing equipment.
ONE SYSTEM. ONE PROGRAM.
Intuitive user interfaces allow personnel to operate the machine with minimal instruction. In instances where settings and/or adjustments need to be made to the part under test during the testing process, the system provides easy to comprehend interface screens. A sample of this is shown. In this case, as the adjustment is being made, the screen actively updates. A change from red to yellow indicates that the adjustment is being made in the proper direction. When the adjustment has been made to be within the acceptance criteria, the result changes from yellow to green. This same type of feedback can be provided for motor hall adjustment as well as others.
Typically systems include a "Summary" screen which is very minimalistic. This screen provides pass/fail indication as well as system status and lead connection information (when required). Selecting the tab for a given fixture (i.e. A, B, etc) provides additional test detail. This detail includes each of the tests conducted, the acceptance limits, the measured results as well as other pertinent information. A sample of the detail screen is shown. In addition to the Summary and Fixture detail screens, there are sometimes additional screens which present data in a graphical format. A couple of examples of this would be a MagMap® graph showing the strength and polarity of a magnetic field, a Digitorque® graph displaying Torque, Current, Efficiency, Speed, etc of a motor.
ATI Test Software
The ATI Test System Software and its utilities are built on a core of mature, object-oriented software components that have been thoroughly field tested and refined over many years. All of ATI's systems share a common core functionality and an easy to use program interface. Our highly skilled software and engineering experts are able to integrate nearly any OEM test or embedded systems equipment into the test system's design whether it's standard or proprietary.
