real Innovation

into the Test engineering

PMS.Cliptest is a software which, in conjunction with special switches, enables the wire-free detection and evaluation of these mechanically actuated buttons. This solution can be used wherever the presence of mechanical attachments must be checked, as is necessary in cable harness production, for example. The add-on parts are registered via small radio switches on the assembly or test boards. No wiring work on the boards is necessary for the system setup, which simplifies going live enormously and reduces the time required for the test.

The automated inspection of the assembly saves time compared to a manual inspection and reduces the error rate in the long term. The documentation of the production, which is also generated automatically in this way, supports your documentation obligations of the quality management.
PMS.Cliptest has been in use worldwide for over 15 years and is constantly being further developed. A personal support rounds off the product PMS.Cliptest.

What can PMS.Cliptest do?

The energy required to generate the radio signal is generated from the mechanical movement - by energy harvesting - of the switch. A test list is stored for the respective product (e.g. cable set or cable set type). The running test for a harness then validates the received state of the switch against this checklist. A test list can be created manually and then imported or received automatically by a leading system via the available interfaces.

This means that testing is also possible for one-off production. The current status of a running test can be displayed at any time on one or more screens in different visualization forms. The software also has interfaces to the process so that event-related reactions or actions can be taken with the aid of a control system.

Core functions

  • High-performance tests with more than 500 switches per mounting/test board
  • Empty test of assembly/test boards
  • Control of the application by one or more barcode scanners
  • Distributed, networked display across multiple workstations
  • Printing of test labels or test reports
  • Flexible and versatile visualization of tests - graphical, tabular or both at the same time
  • Multi-monitor support
  • Simple, guided maintenance of configuration data
  • Interfaces to other MES/ERP systems
  • Integrated Web API for external data retrieval
  • Generation + storage of test results
  • Licensing via USB dongles - Offline and machine independent
  • All functions can be tried out with the 50 days demo license (on request)

 

Extensions

PMS.Cliptest.Eventing:

  • Offers extensive possibilities for automation via linking of events with actions
  • Connection of various hardware and control systems including OPC-UA client
  • Process-dependent control of inputs and outputs

PMS.Cliptest.Reporting:

  • Advanced generation of statistics
  • Overview of all switches and frequency of operation (predictive maintenance)
  • Overview of the number of tests with regard to boards, orders, workplaces and time periods

PMS.Cliptest.Masterdatamanager Extensions:

  • Enables the exchange of switches during running production (Clip Exchange)
  • Guided creation of configuration data (board teaching)
  • Simple switch exchange by means of scanner or switch actuation

 

PMS.Cliptest allows the simultaneous use of a theoretically unlimited number of receivers. This allows receivers to operate redundantly for greater fail-safety and, if required, to increase the range in which signals are received from switches.

Each physical switch can be assigned to several logical switches by PMS.Cliptest, so that a physical switch can be reused for different scenarios. Likewise, multiple physical switches can be assigned to one logical switch so that testing can be performed very flexibly, as specified by the customer.

The wireless and battery-free switches send several message packets to all receivers each time they are actuated, for a distance of approximately 30 metres indoors or 300 metres outdoors (depending on interference factors). Depending on the region, communication takes place on 868 MHz or 315 MHz and can therefore be used worldwide. If a greater distance is to be bridged, receivers can also function as repeaters, thereby forming a mesh-like network. Each receiver has a serial interface, for longer distances the RS485 connection can be used.

THE SOFTWARE Components

ViewClient

The ViewClient displays all information about a running test in different visualizations.

PMS.PrintProcessor.Service

The PMS.PrintProcessorService is responsible for printing labels in PMS.Cliptest.

Service

The service component manages the test logic as well as the communication with test hardware and other connected systems.

Service Configurator

The ServiceConfigurator is used to edit and test the settings of the service.

MasterDataManager

The MasterDataManager provides functions for importing, editing and deleting the required master data. It also allows the teach-in of the function switches.

Backend

The backend stores all the data required for a check, such as the board configuration, the checklists and the switch states. Either a database or the file system serves as the backend.

Production Interface

The optional production interface seamlessly integrates PMS.Cliptest into customer-specific production management systems.
