Your Markets, Your Manufacturing, Your Products
The versatility of the AT5600 makes it ideal for testing a wide range of different transformer types, to cover all your customers market needs.
Quality and Profitability In Any Market
Because the AT5600 can test any magnetic component type, the AT5600 allows you to efficiently deliver quality in any industry area.
As the electronics industry continues its drive towards miniaturisation and customer requirements diversify, magnetic component manufacturers can rely on the AT5600 to provide the highest levels of quality assurance.
OEMs and CEMs can also use the AT5600 to perform fast, 100% incoming test, reducing the need for rework due to faulty components.
Power supplies are perhaps the most familiar areas of application for transformers, but even here the requirements are diverse.
Ferrite-based transformers are ubiquitous in SMPS PSUs, lighting ballasts, inverters and UPS's. Chokes and inductors are also required in these end products, both to control output noise and ripple, and on the AC side for EMC filtering. An area where the AT5600 testing excels.
In communications applications, devices such as xDSL filters and Ethernet LAN transformers have distinctive test requirements.
Accurate measurements of return loss, insertion loss and longitudinal balance, as well as hi-pot testing, are all possible using the integrated AT5600 platform.
Transformers are also frequently used in audio products, to provide isolation and impedance matching.
Here the AT5600’s capability to test under normal operating conditions, and at high frequencies, is a key benefit along with its specific tests designed for audio transformers
A comprehensive range of over 40 test types.
Assurance of output quality, with no time penalty
Our technology also allows 100% testing at real operating voltages – particularly useful for components destined for safety critical applications, and in reducing field failures by keeping tight control of the manufacturing process.
Patented technologies in areas such as impedance measurement and core energisation improve both time-to-test and measurement accuracy.
And tests engineered for specific technologies gives you a broad coverage of test methods.
Used to check for integrity of assembly, correct wire gauge, and shorted turns on all windings
Series Or Parallel Inductance
To assess core material, core assembly, gapping and inductance operation over 20 Hz - 3 MHz
Used to check components are correctly wound with the correct number of turns. Also confirms correct phasing.
To check for close coupling of the magnetic flux between windings, or confirm a specific LL value if desired.
Understand and manage core losses with direct testing of larger transformers at high speed 1-270 V AC
AC and DC Hi-Pot
Check and confirm isolation and product safety with integrated high voltage testing as part of your standard test sequence
A stress test to identify shorted turns or weakened insultation. To validate quality and longevity of build
DC Bias testing
Testing for core saturation characteristics, when in the presence of DC bias signals
