The fuses and relays box test bench has two functions in trucks assembly factory:

  1. it displays to the operator the optional fuses and relays to be manually inserted according to the serial number of the truck
  2. it inspects the box by vision checking all standard and optional fuses and relays are in place

Description

The fuse inspection test bench consists of:

  • hight quality industrial camera
  • hight power LED lights
  • metal structure
  • test fixture to fix the fuse box
  • sensors to detect bad insertion of the fuse box
  • stack lights red/amber/green for test bench state
  • enclosure to protect computer and electric and electronic components from industrial environment
  • touchscreen
  • computer with vision acquisition and vision analysis powered with LabVIEW

 

The fuse inspection test bench works in two modes:

  • production mode: this is the operator mode. It displays the optional components the operator have to insert and controls by vision the optional and standards components. It verifies the label part number. The specification of the components are extracted from the production database. At test end, it prints a label with serial number and test result for visual traceability. It generates test report file and synchronizes with network.
  • maintenance mode: this is the technician mode. It allows the calibration and components identification learning, and verifies the synchronization with the production database.

 

What is LabVIEW?

LabVIEW LabVIEW is a development environment specialized in industrial and scientific applications. Its uniqueness is that it relies on the G language, created by National Instruments, which is fully graphical. It can create complex software, while facilitating the programming and thus reduce development time. Through its library of functions for data acquisition, instrumentation, analysis of mathematical measures, but also through the rapid creation of GUIs and coding simplified, the engineer has more time to focus on specific functions of the instrumentation communication and measurement analysis.

LabVIEW is particularly suitable for developing control, supervision, test and measurement systems.

What is LabWindows/CVI?

LabWindows/CVI LabWindows is a development environment in C language for the implementation of test systems, measurement and instrumentation. Thus, it is possible to enjoy both the power and precision of the C language but also libraries of functions for instrumentation and signal processing from National Instruments.

With LabWindows / CVI, you can develop:

  • software for Windows (exe) or UNIX Linux,
  • libraries (DLL, Active X,. NET),
  • instrument drivers,
  • on embedded targets,
  • on real-time target.

What is Measurement Studio

Measurement Studio pour Visual Studio C++, C# et Visual Basic These are libraries of graphical controls and functions for the rapid development of industrial or laboratory solutions containing .NET technology used directly in Visual Studio, to have power tools National Instruments software and instrumentation functions for C++ , C# or Visual Basic.

What is TestStand

TestStandTestStand is a instruction sequences engine and a development environment for creating a test sequencer evolved several common test for different products. We have a generic software that loads, as the test product, sequences specifying actions, tests and tolerances, and components (such as DLLs) for communication with the hardware.
