Abstract

This apparatus automatically tests capacitors mounted on a circuit board assembly 10. The board serial number and type are optically scanned, using a bar code scanner 12. The information obtained from the scanning is fed to a personal computer 14. The board 10 is then loaded into the tester 18 from track 16. The photosensor 20 determines whether a bus bar has been installed which determines whether to do a leakage test or a high voltage test on the board assembly.

Automatic Hipot Leakage And Cap Measure Tool

This apparatus automatically tests capacitors mounted on a circuit board assembly 10. The board serial number and type are optically scanned, using a bar code scanner 12. The information obtained from the scanning is fed to a personal computer 14. The board 10 is then loaded into the tester 18 from track
16. The photosensor 20 determines whether a bus bar has been installed which determines whether to do a leakage test or a high voltage test on the board assembly.

With this information, the tester 18 lowers the proper set of probes 22, the test is performed on the board 10, and the results stored in the PC 14. The results are then printed out on a printer after which the board 10 is unloaded from the tester 18 and sent to the next operation.
