Abstract

Electromechanical counters are used in conjunction with automatic, dynamic waveform analyzing circuits to display the distribution of parameters of the waveform in the testing of ferrite cores 10. Program generator 12 controls the operation of the waveform analyzing circuits designated as current generator 14 and detector 16, as well as controlling a plurality of And's 18, 20, 22, and 24. The output current is detected by detector 16. The output information is converted from analog-to-digital form by A-D converter 26. The digital information is decoded in decoder 28 that includes a plurality of buffer triggers. The output level of detected current for each core is used to trigger a corresponding And and, in turn, an appropriate counter 1...4.

Use of Electromechanical Counters for Histograms

Electromechanical counters are used in conjunction with automatic, dynamic waveform analyzing circuits to display the distribution of parameters of the waveform in the testing of ferrite cores 10. Program generator 12 controls the operation of the waveform analyzing circuits designated as current generator 14 and detector 16, as well as controlling a plurality of And's 18, 20, 22, and 24. The output current is detected by detector 16. The output information is converted from analog-to-digital form by A-D converter 26. The digital information is decoded in decoder 28 that includes a plurality of buffer triggers. The output level of detected current for each core is used to trigger a corresponding And and, in turn, an appropriate counter 1...4. In this manner each counter represents a segment or cell of a histogram and records the number of parts falling into that segment. A plurality of cores such as 10 is tested in rapid succession and counters 1...4 provide a visual indication of the current status of core testing.
