EKTOS is known for developing and testing electronic solutions, but now we have also developed a cost-effective tool for the final testing of assembled printed circuit boards – our Production Test System, or PTS. We offer the PTS as an efficient solution both in our own development projects but also for testing of circuit boards we have not developed ourselves.
A flexible test rack
Our PTS can test and program a single printed circuit board at a time as well as panels of assembled circuit boards. The PTS is adjusted to test the relevant parameters on a given printed circuit board, which is placed on a needle fixture designed for the specific PCB. Several types of interchangeable needle fixtures function with the standard test rack, which in turn functions with a variety of power supplies and I/O options. PTS can test both single-sided and double-sided printed circuit boards up to a size of 26 x 30 cm. It takes very little time to change between circuit boards of the same type, and it does not take many minutes to set up the PTS for testing a new type of circuit boards.
It is possible to program all types of processors and other programmable circuits. The test program is simple and intuitive, and with monitor, mouse and keyboard, it’s easy to set up a test session, manage and monitor the progress along the way, as well as generate an overview of the results.
The PTS is born from a lack of an alternative
EKTOS has developed the PTS because we lacked an alternative where price and complexity would be below the major suppliers of test solutions. We have experienced that many circuit boards manufactured in low and medium volume are poorly tested in the production situation or not tested at all, as the projects do not have the opportunity to invest in the large test systems. We hope to close this gap in the market with our system.
We readily provide service and guidance
At short notice and at an attractive price EKTOS offers to develop fixtures and test programs for the specific circuit board to be tested. We are available for guidance in how to use the PTS, so please contact us if you are interested in finding out whether PTS is a good solution for your business.
