Huntron has a New Industry Standard Tracker
— April, 2015 — The NEW 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 features variable range parameters resulting in hundreds of voltage, source resistance and frequency combinations. 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.
Huntron Workstation Software
The Huntron Workstation software is 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.
Add Automation to Your Tracker 3200S Tests
Flying Probe technology enables you to automate the Tracker 3200S test of printed circuit boards (PCB) that would otherwise have to be tested manually. Adding a Huntron Access Prober to your test procedure will significantly decrease test times therefore increasing productivity. Access Probers can accurately place a probe on test points with high accuracy achieved using micro-stepping motors and linear laser encoders. Probing the smallest surface mounted devices is possible. Huntron Access Probers can automate your unique test process using the standard probe or by adding a custom probe of your design. Huntron offers three Flying Probe system configurations based on PCB size and test head requirements.
Save Your Favorite Range Combinations
Most Tracker users have their preferred range settings and the Tracker 3200S can save four range combinations that you use the most. These can be selected on the touch screen display (buttons 1-4). The LCD also displays current ranges settings, pulse generator settings, current selected pin, SigAssist calculated values (resistance, capacitance, power, forward and reverse diode breakdown voltages), A vs. B comparison tolerance and Pass/Fail indication.
Tracker 3200S Features
- Add the benefits of Power-Off test to your current diagnostic test strategy
- Can be used as a Stand-alone unit using the convenient front panel controls and touch screen LCD
