Huntron TrackerPXI - (click to enlarge)

The Huntron TrackerPXI ™ is designed to add component level diagnostics to your existing PXI test platform. 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.
The TrackerPXI enables the user to set the applied voltage, frequency and source resistance to best match the circuit characteristics and display the optimum Tracker signature. Using the TrackerPXI with Huntron Workstation software will allow for creation of complete test routines and signature storage.

The Huntron TrackerPXI is controlled by the Huntron Workstation software for test database creation and signature capture. Signatures from known good PCBs are stored in the test database and used for comparison when troubleshooting suspect PCBs. Interfacing the Huntron TrackerPXI to test points can be accomplished manually using Huntron Microprobes, supported PXI switch cards or automatically when used with a Huntron Robotic Prober such as the Huntron Access Automated Probing Station.

TrackerPXI FAQ

Q: What are the primary differences between the TrackerPXI and the Tracker Model 30?
A: The primary difference is the interface platform. The TrackerPXI interfaces via the PXI bus on a PXI based test chassis and the Tracker Model 30 uses a USB conection. The TrackerPXI has Signal and Common banana and BNC front panels connections where the Tracker Model 30 also has connections for Channel B.

Q: What type of accessories can be connected to the TrackerPXI?
A: The TrackerPXI can be used alone with the Huntron Workstation software but for full test automation, the TrackerPXI can be connected to a Robotic Prober such as the Access Prober or Access 2 Prober.

Q: Can the TrackerPXI be used in any brand of PXI chassis?
A: Yes. The PXI test bus is based a hardware standard developed for the test instrument industry. Be aware that there may software configuration differences between brands of PXI chassis.
