        Barcode Scanning

          Barcode Scanning for checking correct barcode print

          • Various barcodes are printed on the label during sticker generation.
          • Rechecking these barcodes with respect to correct data is printed or not,
          • Proper scanning, proper scanning can be done.
          • Generating and checking unique barcode for particular harness can be done.
          Barcode scanning for selection of program for testing.

          • Program can be selected for testing through barcode scanning.
          • Correct program selection and manual selection can be avoided.
          • Barcode to be scanned for program selection is programmable.

          Resource Barcode (Confirmation of Child Part Assembly)

          • Harness is a combination of various raw materials such as cable, sleeves, gromets, plastic tags, wrapping tape and many more.
          • These materials can be acquired from various bins at the time of production.
          • Each of these bins can have unique barcodes.

            Sample Harness

            • Used for daily set up or calibration activity.
            • Faulty sample harnesses with different pre-determined errors such as OPEN, SHORT, LOCATION and EXTRA with defined points can be tested.
            • Unlimited number of steps can be programmed.
            • Each step is user programmable with time counter as per user need.
            • Each step needs to be completed, for example if Step is OPEN Error i.e., OPEN 0002 and 0032
            • Then after mounting faulty harness with OPEN 0002 and 0032 error, only, this step is passed.
            • Data logging after each step is completed.
            • If terminated in between or misused by operator or bypassed then tester will be locked and at next power on SUPERVISOR intervention it will be unlocked.
            • Pass and fail count will not be incremented and no label is printed in sample mode.
            Run Sample Mode

            • During production mode running, if any sample is to be tested randomly for cross verification this mode is used.
            • Harness PASS/FAIL declaration.

            • As the tester compares data or connections of a standard harness with the connections of Harness under Test; calibration is not required.
            • HTPC does not measure any absolute quantity hence calibration is not required.
            • To confirm functionality of the test system i.e. test equipment along with test rig, following procedure can be repeated after fixed period say 3 months or 6 months.
