The Tracker Model 30 was a compact Tracker designed for use with Huntron Workstation and accessories such as the Scanner II or Huntron Access Prober. Take advantage of Tracker Signature Analysis capabilities to help you troubleshoot printed circuit board (PCB) faults to the component level and without applying power, saving circuits from possible further damage.

Huntron Workstation Software
The Huntron Workstation software was included enabling you to automate analog signature analysis (ASA) based tests by creating a test plan, capturing signatures, comparing to stored signatures and viewing the results. The ability to automatically store signatures and document a specific test procedure allows for the sharing of knowledge among all users.

Huntron 3200S

The Huntron® Tracker® 3200S is designed to encompass our product history and leadership in power-off test by providing powerful test and troubleshooting solutions.
The Tracker 3200S is the replacement for the Huntron Tracker Model 30 and features variable range parameters resulting in 100’s of combinations of voltage, source resistance and frequency. You can create Tracker ranges to precisely fit your needs.
The Tracker 3200S uses a color, touch screen LCD for control of features such as range configuration, front panel pin selection and Channel A/B settings. The Tracker 3200S LCD provides a very fast screen refresh rate for quick screening of component pins and display the A and B channel signatures at the same time (A+B mode). The built-in Pulse Generator enables you to dynamically test gated devices such as SCRs, TRIACs and relays. It features two 64 pin IDC connectors for use with IC clips or custom cable interfaces or connect to a Huntron Access Prober for full diagnostic automation.

Tracker Model 30 FAQ

Q: What are the primary differences between the Model 30 and ProTrack?
A: The main differences are hardware related. The Model 30 requires a PC for use where the ProTrack could be used with or without a PC. Because the Model 30 uses a PC for display, it does not have a built-in display. This makes for a more compact package and less expensive price compared to the ProTrack's original selling price. The ProTrack had a built-in Pulse Generator where the Model 30 does not.

Q: What type of accessories can be connected to the Model 30?
A: The Tracker Model 30 can be used alone with the Huntron Workstation software but there are several time saving accessories. The Scanner II can be used to inteface cable style connections such as DIP Clip cables to a PCB under test. For full test automation, the Model 30 can be connected to a Robotic Prober such as the Access Prober or Access 2 Prober.

Q: What are the primary differences between the Tracker Model 30 and the Tracker 2800/2800S?
A: The Tracker 2800/2800S and the Tracker Model 30 are very similar in overall function but their purposes are different.
The Tracker Model 30 is designed to be connected to optional automation hardware such as the Scanner II and Access Probers.
The Tracker 2800/2800S is intended for benchtop use where additional automation is not needed.
Since the Tracker 2800/2800S has a built-in display, it can be used in a stand-alone mode without a PC.
The Tracker Model 30 requires a PC and Workstation software for use.
The Tracker Model 30 includes the Workstation software where it is optional with the Tracker 2800/2800S.
The Tracker 2800/2800s has a scaled down selection of ranges since front panel push buttons are used for setting range combinations.
The Tracker Model 30 has the full compliment of ranges available with Huntron Workstation.
