The 580 Automated and Manual Test Station Suite
The 580 Automated and Manual Test Station Suite is a computer controlled Automated Test Equipment (ATE) suite consisting of interconnected/integrated test stations that operate as a single system using LabVIEW™ and TestStand. The test equipment I/O is wired to a test fixture interface consisting of MIL-DTL-38999/10 Series II connectors. The ATE suite utilizes Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) equipment mounted in standard 19" racks with input power distribution and emergency shutoff and front panel controls. The ATE suite allows for future expansion of test capabilities, is capable of fulfilling RTD&E requirements, and the operating system allows for AC station testing capabilities and configuration. Also furnished is an ATE suite self test (hardware and software) for use in determining ATE suite mission readiness and for performance acceptance testing.
