AT5600 New Feature - Pre-test Kelvin Check Launched
New FREE feature for ALL USERS
Over the course of running many batches of parts, the Kelvin connections could potentially become contaminated with debris, varnish, or could be simply misaligned when a specific part is loaded.
The new pre-test of the connections provides a useful validation that the component is fitted properly, before any testing commences, which in turn provides the best confidence in the following testing.
The Pre-test Kelvin check verifies that there is continuity between the power and sense lines for all nodes that are used in the test program.
It also provides the same check before compensation, to make sure the compensation applied (for all later tests in a batch) is not bad, due to accidental bad connections during compensation.

NEW DC1000A launched
Precision bias source integrates with any wound component test infrastructure
Voltech today announces the DC1000A precision DC bias solution for magnetic and wound component testing.
Interfaces directly with all major T & M manufacturers’ products
10 x accuracy and currents of up 400A
Offering up to ten times the accuracy of our existing solutions, the DC1000A is the only product of its type that can be integrated into production testing environments alongside instrumentation from any major manufacturer.
DC bias sources are essential for production-line testing of a broad range of electronic components and assemblies, allowing them to be exercised under real-world operating conditions. To satisfy the often-substantial current requirements in such applications, the DC1000A offers high (25A) output capabilities, with the additional facility to use several units in parallel to deliver up to 500 A.
Enabling LCR (inductance-capacitance-resistance) measurements to an accuracy of 0.01 µA/mV, with precisely controlled current (down to ±0.5% of current reading ±25 mA) and featuring a dynamic range of 20Hz – 3MHz, the DC1000A is ideally suited not only for manufacturing test environments, but also for accurate characterization of wound component specifications in the design phase.
Though compatible with any LCR meter, the DC1000A is optimized for use in combination with Voltech’s own AT-Series testers – the industry’s most deployed automatic magnetics testers. Delivering ten times the throughput of manual test strategies, AT Series testers allow you to perform any combination of tests on any magnetic component via a single test station.
The DC1000A can be controlled directly from the AT Series test program, facilitating fast, comprehensive single-station testing of any magnetic component.
