WK 260 PC

The Fast, Robust and Versatile All-in-One Cable and Function Tester

The WK 260 PC Tester is the optimal tester for automotive harnesses and electronic components. The operation through a Computer enables a clear programming of complex test scripts with the IVISion Studio Software and an intuitive operation during the test run.

 

Faults can be displayed graphically and therefore localized very quickly in the unit under test (UUT). During the AutoStart/CommandBlock modus, identified faults are tested continuously in the background and kept displayed until they have been solved. A broad range of peripheral devices can be connected to the tester through the running PC.

 

Highlights

  • Fast test speed through the usage of new technologies and new test algorithms
  • Test point cards that are robust against external voltages
  • Extended functionality by switching external voltages up to 50 V

 

Robust, flexible test point matrix

  • Reduced test times through usage of a single point matrix
  • Expansion to up to 20,000 test points possible
  • Highly flexible, since each pin can be defined as

    • Test point – interconnection and measurement of current and voltage
    • LED point – activating LEDs in hand adapters or module tables
    • Power point – switching of external voltages in the functional test
    • ConnectorDetection – detection of plugs
    • Detection point – check non-electrical components such as secondary locks at a connector or clips at the harness
    • PositionMeasurement – measurement of a specific probe to identify the immersion depth

  • New: 4-terminal measurement (Kelvin method): 32 force / 32 sense points (optional)
  • New: High-current power points (max. 1.5 A) to control e.g. electric contactors (optional)

 

Comprehensive, technical equipment for accurate results

  • Switching of voltages up to 50 V e.g. for the functional test of relays and electronic components
  • Exact measurement of current and voltage
  • Accurate measurement down to 20 mOhm
    New: with 4-terminal measurement down to 500 µOhm
  • Extensive diagnostic options for generator, measurement devices, test points, external voltages and LEDs

 

Minimized efforts for installation and adaptation

  • Autonomous addressing and identification of test point cards in the system
  • Automatic detection of test points, LED points, power points and ConnectorDetection points
  • New: ID-Chip channel to identify adaptation holders in the test board
  • Compact design allows space-saving installation
  • Controlling through an Ethernet interface enables the connection with any generic computer
  • Huge number of interfaces

    • Serial and parallel interfaces to link with peripheral devices
    • USB interfaces to load test programs or user IDs

 

IVISion Studio Software: Innovative functions for programming, testing and identification of faults

  • Many new functions simplify the development of test programs
  • Simple conversion of test programs from IVIS 5 or IVISion 3
  • Easy import of test programs or data (e.g. naming of the pins) from Microsoft® Excel®
  • Graphical display of failures for a quick localization in the Unit Under Test (UUT)
  • Continuous testing of identified faults in the background to keep them displayed until they have been solved (AutoStart/CommandBlock)
  • Flexible Module Test to test different variants on one system (KSK, Kundenspezifischer Kabelsatz = customer specific cable harness)
