The AFT09 is based on the basic AFT05K model, with an added analog section. This section is implemented with a multifunction National Instruments board and with our own protection interface with the device to test.

The additional analog resources comprise:

  • low voltage analog inputs, which can be programmed in both differential and single end mode, with reference to a point that is common with the equipment to test, to measure voltage, frequencies, RMS, max., min. values, etc.
  • low voltage analog outputs, which can generate programmable waveforms

The AFT09 also has up to two additional power sources, that can be easily configured using the standard table method for the voltage required by the user.

A fixture is usually designed for each device to test, particularly for the production of a large number of equipment and to assist the operator. The fixture consists of a bed of nails, to connect the device under test to the AFT09, and a mechanism to make handling easier.
External cables connect the machine resources to the fixture.

The programming of these additional resources is as usual very simple and cuts test programme writing times considerably.
Inputs can be programmed so as to acquire analog values when required, and frequency, RMS, voltage and max. and min. values can be taken from these samples.
Analog outputs can be programmed to obtain sine, square waveforms etc. with the required amplitude and frequencies.
The AFT09 provides numerous programming opportunities, with the possibility of simultaneously testing two devices and of a conditioned test performance that is even greater than other versions.
