AMOtronics - SATURN Digital Test Sequencer / Timer - 1

SATURN N£* SEQUENCE TiMER M 0\ PRECISE TEST CONTROL If If' 'fuuo I jf.wo 1 ■f j I I~"'* The Sequence Timer family from AMOtronics is a scalable real-time test control system. It allows precise and reliable control of test facilities and units under test. The NEW Cycle Timer and Pattern Generator Software offer both, easy-to-use graphical configuration and, if needed, flexible individual programming. Electrical testing laboratories at any voltage level benefit from the precise timing and fail-save design. A selection of high power output modules with RELAY, MOSFET or IGBT switches support a wide range of typical requirements. Modular hardware platform 8..192 channels Internal real-time ions clock source Synchronization to generator frequencv for rotating applications Electrical or iber-optic channels Safe operation via configurable Qualifier Inputs and Security Loop Optional high power output modules: RELAY, MOSFET or IGBT Easy-to-use Cycle Timer software Flexible programming interface Optional Remote Control

iCATION ISOLATION AND LONG DISTANCES Signal Conversion Boxes for Signal Input and Control Output A set of conversion boxes, powered via battery or 5VDC, convert optical fiber signals into electrical switching signals or vice versa. The >24V tolerant BNC inputs forward signals (e.g. from a SPS) via fiber to the Sequence Timer qualifier or marker inputs. The electrical 3.3V TTL outputs can be used for instance to trigger oscilloscopes, high-speed cameras, radar flashes or any other equipment. For interfacing electrical signals to optical inputs or outputs of the Sequence Timer AMOtronics...

CYCLE TIMERGRAPHICAL CONFIGURATION SOFTWARE The Sequencer is configured and controlled by means of the SEQUENCER - CYCLE TIMER software. The software provides a comfortable graphical user interface. It allows to easily adjust the main options of the Sequencer, interactively generate the required signal output patterns, download the complete configuration onto the Real-Time Sequencer Processor Unit as well as observe and control the program execution. Internal Clock Mode In this mode the generated output patterns are strictly time-based. The SATURN Sequencer offers a high precision internal...
