3.4. Ethernet connection


Testem-R includes an Ethernet port which is not functional at the moment (December 2011). It will be
functional in future firmware versions. If you think Ethernet is enabled in your Testem-R, look for newer
versions of this manual.

3.5. Test board and counterparts


Testem-R includes the analog test card "01CTC5D". So, it is completely compatible with Emdep AT series
USB rack.

Notice that, since the voltage of the test card is 5V, the power supply for the leds must be 5V
also. It means that, when replacing an old Testem-R equipment by a Testem-R v2011, that
power supply should be replaced.

The use of Emdep standard interface cards reference 01CTC6xxM is highly recommended. Several
variants with different connector types are available, adapted to the standards of each customer. Ask
Emdep for further details.

3.6. Installing the software


software
Testem-R is programmed with Wintestem; an office version of the license is available.

4. Programming with Wintestem

4.1. Set-
Set-up
Before starting to program the harnesses, there are some important questions about Wintestem set-up
to consider:

The number of test cards can be up to four (256 test points).


There can be up to thirty-two defined colors, and the code of each color can be up to two
characters.

4.2. Harness compilation


Harnesses can be compiled for Testem-R by selecting the corresponding option in the compilation form:

Figure 7: Harness compilation

During the compilation, the connector and detection names are truncated to 8 characters,
and wire names to 16 characters. In the same way, the ways are renamed to correlative
numbers.

For each compiled harness, an .rhn extension file will be created. This file will contain all the
information about the harness and the board.

Notice that the board definition has to be identical for all the compiled harness. If different
board definitions have to be used in the same Testem-R, consider the possibility to compile
them in different projects (different Wintestem folders, different ".tr" compiled files). Several
projects can be stored in the internal memory of the Testem-R. See 5.3.1 in this manual for further
information about test data management.

ELECTRICAL TEST

TEST: This instruction is used to test a harness. To test the harness is necessary to
choose the compiled harness file name, the test mode (Normal or Once OK) and
the parts to test (Hardware, Locks, Detections and Wires).

The Harness file path can contain @REF. During compilation time @REF will be
changed to the reference name (it is necessary to use the same test process in
different references).

See 5.1.2. Electrical test details for more information about electrical test
options.

IF TEST RESULT: This option is a conditional jump to a different process line. It


jumps if the result of the last test is correct or not. This instruction can be affected
by a Test or a Test capacitor instruction.

4.3.3. Variables

The following is a list of all the variables available in the Testem-R.

@YR[Fx]  Year (2 digits by default).


@MH[Fx]  Month (2 digits by default).
@MHFT  Text month (Jan,Feb,Mar,..).
@DY[Fx]  Day (2 digits by default).
@DAYJUL[Fx]  Day of the year.

st
@WEEK[Fx]  Week of the year (the first week is the one which contains Jan 1 . Monday first
day of the week).
@HR[Fx]  Hour (2 digits by default).
@MN[Fx]  Minute (2 digits by default).
@SC[Fx]  Seconds (2 digits by default).
@REF  Current testing reference name.
@BOARD  Test board name.
@USER  Users id.
@RSTR0 to @RSTR7  Static Reference Strings. They are stored in flash memory until a new
memory card is downloaded. They can be initialized in WinTestem (Testem-R -> File Manager).
There are 8 strings available for each reference, 16 characters long each one.
@STR00 to @STR15  Volatile Strings. They are 64 characters long and are erased always at
the process beginning.
@RC0[Fx] to @RC2[Fx]  Specific counters for each reference. Stored in Flash memory and
only erased when a memory card is downloaded.
@C0[Fx] to @C2[Fx]  Global counters, modifiable from all references test processes. Stored
in Flash memory until a memory card is downloaded.

If these variables are used during process execution, they will be replaced by their current value. They
can appear in the following cases:

In a label file: variables will be replaced by their value when a print label command starts.
In a show command, variables will also be replaced by their actual value.
In a Set string command.

The [Fx] after a numeric variable name is used to define its format (number of characters). For instance,
suppose that @C1 has the value 21, then:

@C1F7 would be 0000021


@C1F3 would be 021
@C1F0 would be 21.

If [Fx] is not written, numeric variables will be printed in their default format (2 digits for date/hour
variables and like F0 for the others).

4.4.1. The Data Manager main


main screen

The File Manager, located in Programming -> Extras -> Testem-R -> Data Manager, is the part of
Testem-R software in charge of compiling and creating the file that contains all the information to be
compiled for one Testem-R.

Figure 9: Data Manager screen

GENERAL OPTIONS

LOAD: Open an existent File Generator file (.fg).

SAVE: Save the current .fg file.

BUILD: Compile and generate the .tr file in the target folder.

QUIT: Quit the Testem-R Data Manager.

BROWSE: This instruction is used to select the path of the .tr file created after
compilation.

ADD REFERENCE: This instruction is used to add a reference to the list.

Engineering Department
3EETR TESTEM-R V2012

REMOVE REFERENCE: This instruction is used to remove a reference from the list.

NOTES:

A .fg file contains a list of all the references that will be tested on a specific test-board.
It is recommended that a different WinTestem working folder is created for each test board,
with a file generator file for each, which will contain the references to be tested on that
board.
When a compilation succeeds, the .tr file is created. This is the file that will be uploaded to
the Testem-R through a USB stick. Testem-R does not support long file name, so long names
will be adapted by the Testem-R to the DOS format.

4.4.2. Adding new references

To add a new reference to the current file, click the Add Reference icon. The following dialog box will
appear:

Figure 10: Adding a new reference

Notice that a different test process can be selected for each reference. It can be useful to adapt to
special features of a harness (specific component to test, special label for one reference, etc.)

To assign an initial text to the static reference strings (see 3.3.Variables) click Static Reference
Strings button.

These strings can be used in the process (@RSTR0 to @RSTR7).

4.4.3. Compilation

Clicking build icon the compilation starts. If an error is detected the compilation will stop and will
show the error messages in the output text box. If it succeeds, then the .tr file will be created and
ready to be copied to the Testem-R using a USB pen drive.

Compilation notes:

At least one reference with a Test process instruction must be included, because the board
pins definition is taken from the compiled harness file.
The compiler will check that all the tested harnesses have the same board definition.

5.1.2. Electrical test details

There are three different test modes, selectable in the process instruction parameters:

Normal mode:
The test is passed only if a complete test without errors has happened. When an error
is solved, another test is started from the beginning.

Once OK:

One part is considered ok when it has been correct one time. After that, it will not be
checked. The parts that are still not ok are continuously scanned. It can be useful for
those tests when it is difficult to keep all elements inserted in the counterparts, like
clips test. It is only available for locks and detections.

There are four possible test steps, which are optional:

Hardware:

This test checks the correct isolation between free pins (not connected) and the rest of the rack
pins. It activates each free pin, checking that the other pins are not active. This is an example of
a hardware error, which means that an error appear (one active point) when activating
card/pin 1/6.

HARDWARE ERROR

C/P: 01/06

Figure 21: Hardware error

Locks:

This test checks the correct insertion of connectors in the counterparts. The system will ask for
those connectors that have at least one wire or detection programmed, and only if the lock pin
has been defined in the board edition. Two kinds of error can appear in this test step:

MISSING CONNECTOR

Con_A

Figure 22: Missing connector

EXTRA CONNECTOR

Con_A

Figure 23: Extra connector

Detections:

Detections test checks all the programmed detections, activating one of its test points, and
checking the others state. Two different error messages can appear, depending on the real and
the programmed state of a detection. The name of connector and detection is shown:

Testem-R v2012 has the ability to perform analog test. The difference between the analog and
the standard (digital) test is the possibility to regulate the resistance threshold during the test,
in this case between 50 Ohms and 100 kOhms.. The resistance threshold is the value in ohms
for which the test equipment decides whether a single wire is good or bad in terms of
continuity parameters.

Using this feature, the electrical test of wires can be done in two steps:

Continuity test: moving the resistance threshold to a low level in ohms ensures that
after the test, the harness will not have any wire with a big resistance (a wire of
very bad quality).

Isolation test: moving the resistance threshold to a high level in ohms ensures that
after the test, the harness will not have any non programmed contact between
empty cavities, between wires or between empty cavities and wires.

During the electrical test, the used resistance threshold will be shown at the top-left part of the
display. See figure 26 and 27, where a 100 Ohm threshold is used.

See the table below for further details concerning Continuity and Isolation test steps.

Test Probe

During a test, when an error is shown on the display, the user can start a probe test pressing key 1.
This test will be finished pressing Esc key, then the previously displayed error will be shown to follow
with the normal test. See 2.1 Test Probe for further details.

Errors shifting

Sometimes it is useful for the operator to see more than one error to understand what is wrong in the
harness. There is an option to check the list of errors.

During hardware and wires test, other errors can be displayed pressing the down arrow key.
During locks and detections test, pressing up and down arrows the list of unsolved parts will
appear. Pressing Esc key the normal test will continue.

Process information

Pressing 2 during the electrical test, a screen with information about user and reference will appear.
Press Esc to return to the test.

1. Create a process with a Test capacitor instruction included in calibration mode.

Figure 29: Capacitor options for calibration

2. Run this process on the board with the harness and the capacitor correctly inserted on it.
3. A screen similar to the following one will be shown. The capacitor is continuously tested,
and the calibration value updated. Write down this value and then include it in the process
instruction, now in normal mode.

CAPACITOR TEST
calibration value:
1.8e03
PRESS A KEY TO ABORT

Figure 30: Capacitor test screen with calibration mode

Notice that, in Testem-R v2012, the calibration value has been rescaled so that normally will be close to
the real value of the capacitor in nF. So, a 100nF capacitor will normally get calibration values close to
100, while a 470uF capacitor will return approximately a calibration value of 470000.

Special modes:

All test points Mode: Lock detections and leds could disturb the user during a probe test on a
test board with a harness inserted in its counterparts. So by default they are not shown in the
probe test. Press key 2 to see also the active pins which are defined as locks or leds (All test
points mode) and Esc to disable this special mode (return to Normal mode).
Wires Mode: If Probe Test is accessed during the electrical test (by pressing key 1), the user can
also check the wires related to the test point currently displayed, and also check either if they
are OK or not.
o Press key 1 another time to enter this mode.
o The list will include all the wires going to the test points that the tester should find as
active when it is activated.
o Notice that Testem-R will display the list of wires that should be connected to that test
point according to the harness being tested in that moment.
o This mode latches the state when the user presses key 1 and it does not refresh the
state of the wires (OK or not OK) until the user exits this mode and enters another
time.
o In Wires mode, the following information is shown (both screens are displayed
intermittently to show all the information):

--- Probe (Wires) --

Figure 37: Probe test wires mode (2)

In this mode the symbol (!) is always shown meaning that it may be not the current state of
the wires (it shows the state when this mode was accessed).

Important notes:

If more than one test-pin is activated, the user can navigate through a list using left and
right arrows.
The test probe screen shows a list of the last activated points. The user can leave the probe
disconnected to check the information on the screen. When the probe is not connected,
the symbol (!) will be shown meaning that there are not any active test points (the tester
shows a copy of the last test points that were activated).
This test is only available if the equipment has been previously programmed (board
information is set with WTT).
