HBM Australia ’s Easyswitch process controller with TEDS allows the testing of up to five switch elements in one cycle. The range of different sensors is increased for improved monitoring of switching systems for power distribution in automotive or quality consumer goods.
The Easyswitch process controller provides added security by reducing potential claims under product liability legislation since it gives traceable data in the event of customer complaints. Accurately monitoring and documenting switching systems reduces the percentage of rejects and production downtime.
The Easyswitch process controller provides consistent recording of the functioning of switching elements and locking systems using force, displacement or torque angle of rotation sensors during production. The Easyswitch process controller is intended for automotive, energy and other markets, where quality production and traceability demands are high. Correctly testing switches and locking systems gives immediate results for optimal quality and production control.
To aid manufacturers, the Easyswitch process controller features tactile feedback when activating pushbuttons and rotary switches and identifies or documents the switching characteristics of single or multiple pole voltage switches.
Based on HBM Australia’s PME modules, the Easyswitch process controller can easily be integrated into existing systems and customised applications using the API software library. Test stands can be integrated using Fieldbus (Profibus-DPV1) or Fast Ethernet while setup and handling are simplified by using PME-Assistant. The Easyswitch process controller can be remotely controlled and serviced using Ethernet or through the Internet.Results can be seen visually using the FASTpress software package running on standard IPC equipment with Windows Vista, XP and CE. Test results and parameter sets can be stored on memory card in the MP85A-S or through Ethernet on a stand-alone PC or industrial server. The Easyswitch process controller is provided in a robust industrial housing.
