Fagor Electronics manufactures a line of RF amplifiers for the automotive sector. Each amplifier must be tested and the results saved in a database. Each amplifier model has a customized test with validation parameters that are also customized. The system must allow for the traceability of each component and the identification of the components that have been sent in each lot. At the end of the month, a report must be generated with the production results.
A program was developed in Labview to be run on an office PC. The PC connects to the testing and measurement instruments by GPIB. Each part is assigned a barcode with the serial number that is read at the start of each test. The test system is then set up for that specific part, which is measured and compared to the limits for that specific model. The results of each test are saved in an MySQL database. It is possible to consult at any time the results for a part, summaries of the tests performed, the lot to which it belongs, etc.
