Circuit Board Fault Finding using the Huntron Tracker 3200S
The Tracker 3200S enables Circuit Board Fault Finding. It has a colour, 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 displaying 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.
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.
Cable Based Scanning
The Tracker 3200S features two 64 pin IDC connectors (one per channel) where custom cable interfaces can be used to quickly scan PCB connectors as a type of “first pass” test. If signature differences are detected then you can trace the connector pin to the component level saving you troubleshooting time. The two 64 pin connectors can be combined for a total of 128 pins and you have the ability to select any pin to be used as Common. You can also use standard IC clips and cables to easily scan standard ICs and select SOICs. Clip and cables are available from places such as Digi-Key.
Automate your test with Access Prober
The Tracker 3200S is designed to connect to a Huntron Access Prober for full diagnostic automation. BNC connections on the rear panel allow you to easily interface the Huntron Access, Access 2 or Access DH Probers. If you need to test high density, surface mount PCBs, robotic automation is a tremendous time saver.
Preferred Range Settings
Therefore, Tracker users have their preferred range settings. Hence, Tracker 3200S can save four range combinations that you use the most. Select 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
