Seica recently introduced an educational video about their complete flying probe test platform that provides up to 20 mobile resources for testing an electronic board, including test probes. Each can apply up to 2A current, high-resolution cameras for automatic optical inspection, barcode and data matrix reading, laser sensors, capacitive probes, pyrometers, optical fiber sensors for LEDs, minifixtures for boundary scan and On Board Programming, high-frequency probes able to measure signals at frequencies over 1.5 GHz.
Engineered for medium/high volume production, the Pilot V8 Next series is available in a fully-automated version, capable of hosting from 1 to 12 racks of boards to be tested (even of different types) or for direct connection to board loading/unloading and tilt modules, compatible with any standard assembly line. It can be configured to satisfy the full range of different board test requirements: the HR version extends the performance to include probing of extremely miniaturized devices (down to 30 µm), while in the XL version expands the standard work area of 610 x 540 mm to 800 x 650 mm, able to accommodate and test “extra-large” boards.
In the line with Industry 4.0 standards
All of the Next series solutions have the company’s Industrial Monitoring Solution on board, with the potential for remote monitoring of current and voltage consumption, mains supply, temperature, light indicators and other parameters useful to indicate correct operation, to provide information enabling predictive maintenance and in general to render the systems compatible with today’s Industry 4.0 standards.
