MCD TestManager CE - the Universal Test Software.
The TestManager is the universal standard software for application-specific measurement and test stations in the automotive and electronic industries. It is simple, modularly scalable, inexpensive and efficient.
The TestManager is a software development kit to create applications for test systems. The ranges of application are board testing, final inspection, screening systems, and process control. It also includes a variety of interfaces (TCP/IP, GPIB/IEEE488/HP-IB, RS232, CAN, LIN...). In addition, the software offers an interpreter with connections to DLLs, COM, ActiveX, .NET assemblies. Of course, the MCD TestManager is expandable for customer-specific requirements and therefore always adapts on the individual needs of the customer.
Essential features are a designable graphic user interface, a variety of software and hardware interfaces with extensive test monitors and a powerful interpreter, with direct integration of external DLLs, COM +/ActiveX, .NET and LabVIEW components.
Integrate LabVIEW VIs and other Software Interfaces
LabVIEW VIs can be integrated in the runtime or development environment. This allows TestManager to be utilized as a sequencer for the LabVIEW VIs. Integration takes place via the interpreter of the TestManager or simply through configuration as a component of the test sequence.
Among the software interfaces are TCP/IP, database and web interfaces. The self-explanatory MCD interpreter language is just as easily programmable as in C#, VB and Java#, without an additional development environment.
TestManager CE - Test Sequencing Made Easy
With the assistance of the type-management, test procedures for various sorts of devices and structures are summarized. Through variant creation, existing operations can be modified without requiring them to be recreated. The selection and charging processes of the sample to be tested during operation can be done automatically.
Integrated ToolMonitors are available to provide assistance during the program development cycle as well as the commissioning or troubleshooting phases. The representation of layout data and test-point coordinates, the breakdown of all communication protocols (e.g. CAN, LIN, MOST, RS232...), the display and modification of existing switching conditions, or the signal tracking using voltage and current measurement, signal analysis, or via oscilloscopes are various examples of what can be done. In addition, an integrated debugger can view and control the test process step by step.
Multiple instances of the TestManager can be intelligently managed and controlled. Critical for the analyses to be performed are the test procedures themselves. Individual sub-tasks for the units are divided into separate test steps and then processed sequentially. The individual test steps are then created by the application developer within the TestManager. Specific methods or modes are provided in case complex functions occur. This is especially relative for access to connected hardware and also for linkages to external components, such as databases or the process-control engineering.
By integrating .Net Frameworks and additional programming languages, the application developer has access to an almost endless number of pre-built components and tools that can be integrated into the test sequence. These components can enhance the visualization, the data exchange on the intranet, complex calculations or the integration of external components. With the help of the constructed test steps, the application developer ultimately generates a flow chart for the entire analysis. In conjunction with the sequential control of the TestManager, both individual testing as well as parallel testing of multiple samples are realized.
