Please be aware that updated AT5600 Firmware and updated AT5600 user manual are now available free for all AT5600 customers.
All are freely available from our DOWNLOAD page.
Updates take 15 mins and MUST be performed over DIRECT USB(NOT RS232) using the AT EDITOR
AT5600 FIRMWARE V 1.001.026
USER MANUAL V 14
When printing failures only to USB printer, the AT now prints the test number not the row position. (ID 9060)
This version also takes care of the editor locking up when running a program on the AT5600 while the safety interlock is already broken
Improved the TCP/IP connection process to be more robust.
Safety aborts are no longer latched while the Kelvin failure screen is shown.
The RUN led on the front panel is no longer left illuminated while the printing and communications are in progress.
Stop on fail is now followed by a safety interlock check.
Kelvin checks are now followed by a safety interlock check.
Resolved an issue that caused the AT5600 to crash if the printer ran out of paper.
The remote BUSY light now turns on appropriately.
Changed the text 'Transformers Tested' to 'Programs Run' on the program execution screen.
Stop on fail now uses the user set failure beep setting.
Added specification-based integration for CTY, R, R2, LS, LP, L2, QL, D, RLS, RLP, Z, ANGL, TR and LVOC to improve speed
Fixed an issue with self-test ID 3100 false failing
Added a method to detect and recover from disruption on the USB peripheral.
Added the ability to move to a non-ideal resistance range combination when in high noise environments.
HPAC Modified the trip level for the AC-EHT generator to allow it to execute high voltage high frequency tests without tripping.
HPAC HPDC Improved the trimming for low level class D, HPDC and HPAC tests to reduce the chances of a spurious 0020 error code.
LL Deleted a legacy correction coefficient on the leakage inductance test.
LSB LPB ZB Compensation and Dc bias trimming is now improved for LPB and ZB tests.
LSBX LPBX ZBX Compensation is now improved or LSBX, LPBX and ZBX tests.
LS LP The accuracy has been improved at 1MHz and up. This Improvement also requires re-calibration
LVOC test signal trim improvement
LVOC tests now use turns ratios compensation method.
MAGI Mean sense RMS scaled in MAGI now works properly.
MAGI VOC WATT The ranging and learning process for class D tests has been modified to prevent false overloads.
MAGX tests now re-use energization properly if the energized test is the first test.
R CTY Improved the ranging process for DCR to prevent range hunting.
R CTY Increased the current ranges for DCR range combinations to reduce the decrease the probability of 0002 error codes.
R CTY Improved the low impedance detection on high DC resistance range combinations.
R CTY Resistance ranges and signal levels have been adjusted to give improved accuracy, particularly around 100 ohms.
TRL L2 Improved the trimming algorithm for TRL and L2 to reduce the effect of limits on the measured value when in auto mode.
VOC Improved noise rejection for VOC tests by utilizing harmonic analysis. (ID 9515)
VOCX WATX MAGX Improved the execution sequence for MAGX, WATX and VOCX to dramatically increase execution speed.
VOCX WATX MAGX Added class D current limiting to the energization process for MAGX, WATX and VOCX tests when used with AT output +Transformer
VOCX WATX MAGX External magnetizing tests no longer disable ESE even when the signal level or frequency changes. ESE is enabled for all sequential AC IF tests.
Known Issues - to be fixed in future release
LL – LL test when uncompensated, can return 1e-09. As LL typically always requires compensation for meaningful results due to the small values usually measured this should not affect many customers, but users should be aware.
DCRT sometimes gives erroneous STAT error and false fail
VOC Open Circuit compensation can fail in certain cases when using multiple tapped windings in a test.
New Features - Coming Soon
BARCODE reader Support for USB barcode reader (and HDI USB keyboards) for part, serial, batch operator entry.
COMPENSATION STORAGE Unit will store any valid compensation applied in memory and auto load on next program load. Compensation can then be used, cleared or re compensated. Up to 2000 programs compensation can be stored in AT5600
SCHEMATIC VIEW Simplified view of At EDITOR schematic can be shown on AT after program load which removes the need to refer to editor program when connecting parts.
