Vehicle End-of-Line (EOL) Testing, Portable

 

Titan’s DAQ-in-a-Box TM is a Portable Data Acquisition (DAQ) and Test System designed for a broad range of vehicle test applications in which a traditional stationary test system is not appropriate, including:

Applications

  • End-of-Line
  • Moving Assembly Lines
  • In-Process Validation
  • Repair Bays
  • Test Racks or Proving Grounds

Tests and Checks Performed

  • Obtain Order Numbers, Serial Numbers, Model Numbers, etc. by means of a wireless barcode scanner to eliminate manual data entry errors
  • CAN Interface and Diagnostics via a USB CAN Adaptor attached to the Laptop or Desktop PC
  • Verify the proper load current of the entire product (Lights, Fans, Solenoids, etc.
  • Wheel Speeds and Rotation by the use of Accelerometers
  • Hydraulic Relief and Pump/Pilot Pressures
  • Cycle Times of Hydraulic Cylinders
  • Cab Pressurization, A/C Temperature and Humidity Tests
  • Check/Verify Solenoids are properly connected and perform a functional test
  • Verify Switches and sensors are either in normally open or normally closed position
