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.
