AUTOMATION


Starrett Lx systems can be interfaced with ancillary instrumentation for factory automation applications or where more advanced and complex measurements are necessary.


The optional Automation Builder software packages can be used for interfacing with instrumentation and equipment through digital and analog I/O signals.


(Above) A conditional branching occurs when the Lmax result is out-of- tolerance. This will cause a message to display to the operator and it will cause a signal annunciator to light red for a failed test sample.


The Automation Builder can also be used to incorporate conditional logic within your test setup.


Conditional logic


can be used to establish If/Else relationships, including the ability to automatically adjust test setup functionality based on events that occur during a test run.


Digital I/O can be used for contact closure testing. You can measure and determine the precise load that caused the "make" or "break" in an electronic component or switch. You may also use conditional logic combined with the digital outputs to light an annunciator based on a tolerance result.


Digital I/O is available on all MMx and FMx test frames. Analog I/O is only available using the MMS or MMD test frames.
