      • Can be connected to any label printer and programming is through .prn file.
      • Variables such as date, time, serial number, shift, barcodes, operator codes, and many more are present in the label and can be customised in the future as per requirement.
      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.
        Barcode Scanning after harness pass for confirmation of selected program

        • Manual selection of program can be confirmed after testing through barcode. Programming is available through authority menu.
        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.
        • These barcodes can be scanned before production for confirmation purpose for selection of correct material.
        • Resource barcodes checked in both sequential and random modes.

        • HACG can be connected as external accessory.
        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.
        • No label print if harness pass.
        • No relay is activated for PASS/FAIL.
        • Counters such as pass, fail, cut, serial number, are not incremented.
        • Data is logged at this event.

        • As the tester compares data or connections of a standard harness with the connections of Harness under Test; calibration is not required.
        • FACT 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.
        • Sample Harness testing facility for Master Sample.
