Controller can test five switch elements in one cycle

21st February 2013

HBM's EASYswitch process controller with TEDS now allows the testing of up to five switch elements in one cycle. The range of different sensors has been increased for improved monitoring of switching systems for power distribution in automotive or high-quality consumer goods.

Using EASYswitch 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 per centage of rejects and production downtime.

EASYswitch works by providing consistent recording of the functioning of switching elements and locking systems using force, displacement or torque angle of rotation sensors during production. EASYswitch is intended for the automotive, energy and other markets where high-quality production and traceability demands are very high.

Correctly testing switches and locking systems gives immediate results for optimal quality and production control.

To aid manufacturers, EASYswitch features tactile feedback when activating pushbuttons and rotary switches as well as identifying and documenting the switching characteristics of single- or multiple-pole voltage switches.

Based on HBM's PME modules, EASYswitch 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 is simplified by using PME-Assistant.

EASYswitch can be remotely controlled and serviced using Ethernet or through the Internet.
