Dimensions & Diagrams

RoBAT S1 Dimensions


  • Uses 224 pin modules for very fast electrical test – can be spring probes or mating connector
  • Combined electrical + AOI test in one machine
  • Measures Continuity, Isolation + analogue components
  • Tests every type of backplane – small/large, simple/complex – There are no pin pitch or pin quantity limits
  • Tests every type of connector – fine pitch signal to heavy power connectors
  • Tests both single and double sided assemblies – Up to 1400mm (55”) x 700mm (27.55”)
  • Very fast to changeover product types < 5 minutes
  • Has very low tooling cost
  • Programmable 50-1500V isolation test for 16 fixed + 2 moving probes
  • Guard point testing for 2 terminal analogue components
  • A very fast test time – typically 4 – 15 minutes
  • Easy to program and commission – typically < 2 days to complete – common suite with other RoBAT systems.
  • Expandable to other test options e.g. Eeprom Programming
  • Easy to modify test program for product changes
  • Offline Graphical Repair station
  • Extended life of mating module due to high reliability of design and robotics
  • Now available as a 4-head machine, speeding up test times by up to 50%
  • 4 heads will also enable end to end resistive testing
  • High resolution AOI system detects bent pin faults with a great degree of accuracy. Best pin test tolerance can be set as low as +/- 0.1mm
