Dashboard Testing Equipment

DTE 107 Non-vision

Automatic Test Equipment for dashboard / instrument cluster

Futura makes a generic automatic test equipment  for testing electrical parameters. Dashboard tester is generic tester to test vehicle dashboard or instrument cluster.

Function:

A Dashboard or instrument cluster has tachometer i.e. rpm, speedometer (either digital or analog), Odometer, tripmeter, indicators (such as high beam, left hand turn, right hand turn, temperatures, pressures etc.), fuel gauge etc. For testing, various signals are to be applied to the unit and to check for correct display and indication i.e. correct output.

Futura’s dashboard tester DTE is a semiautomatic test equipment. It has facility to generate and apply input signals. Output is checked in two ways, viz. tester checks current consumed by  power supply for each step and appearance of display to be checked manually and confirmed. All the faults / errors resulting in current out of limits are found automatically by tester. Other faults need manual i.e. operators decision.

Operation:

Dashboard Under Test has Variable supply from 9V to 16V DC, two PWM outputs, two Resistance outputs and Thirty digital outputs for indicators i.e. tell tales. The unit is compact and portable, weighing about 4 Kgs. It is useful to test a dasboard at any location. A cable as per dashboard is connected from DIS to dashboard. A multimeter with facility to measure frequency and duty cycle, along with DC voltage and resistance is provided with the unit. It facilitates precise adjustment and thus input signals to dashboard. To calibrate DIS, only multimeter is to be be calibrated.

Dashboard Input Simulator

Dashboard / instrument cluster Input Simulator

Dashboard / Instrument Cluster simulator helps dashboard manufacturers to check any dashboard on vehicle assembly line. It simulates all the signals necessary to operate and indicate a dashboard / instrument cluster. This facilitates immediate complaint solving from vehicle manufacturers. It can also be a useful tool for garages.

Description:

To check functionality of any dashboard by connecting input signals.

Operation:

DIS has Variable supply from 9V to 16V DC, two PWM outputs, two Resistance outputs and Thirty digital outputs for indicators i.e. tell tales. The unit is compact and portable, weighing about 4 Kgs. It is useful to test a dasboard at any location. A cable as per dashboard is connected from DIS to dashboard. A multimeter with facility to measure frequency and duty cycle, along with DC voltage and resistance is provided with the unit. It facilitates precise adjustment and thus input signals to dashboard. To calibrate DIS, only multimeter is to be be calibrated.
