ABI Electronics BoardMaster PCB Test Solution

ABI BoardMaster 8000 PLUS – a unique, versatile, self-contained, and easy-to-use PCB test system.  BoardMaster 8000 Plus is a comprehensive set of test instruments, complete with built-in PC, for testing and fault-finding on almost any kind of PCB.  Incorporating a full range of test instruments in one compact box and offering a variety of available test methods, BoardMaster 8000 PLUS provides a cost-effective standalone solution for electronics faultfinding across a wide range of industries.

BoardMaster 8000 PLUS is an integrated package of high specification instrumentation controlled by sophisticated but easy to use software. The hardware is installed in a rugged transportable case that also contains a high specification, Windows™ PC.  BoardMaster 8000 PLUS is based on a modular system which can be customized for specific applications, and its software can be configured to guide users step-by-step through a test procedure, with custom-annotated picture images, instructions, and attached datasheets to give quick Pass/Fail results.  This is much faster and more economical than using traditional oscilloscope and metering and other bench test methods.

A typical BoardMaster 8000 PLUS configuration offers:
• Two Board Fault Locator modules, with 128 test channels for multiple test methods for fault diagnosis and functional testing of digital ICs (in-circuit / out-of-circuit), IC connections status, and voltage acquisition, V-I Curve testing of components on unpowered boards.
• An Analog IC Tester for in-circuit functional testing of analog ICs and discrete components (no programming or circuit diagrams needed). Fully configurable V-I Tester for detection of faults on unpowered boards.
• A Multiple Instrument Station with 8 high specification test and measurement instruments in one compact module (Frequency Counter, Digital Storage Oscilloscope, Function Generator, Digital Floating Multimeter, Auxiliary PSU, and Universal I/O). 
• A Triple Output Variable Power Supply provides required supply voltages to the unit under test.

Many repair centers around the world are equipped with BoardMaster 8000 PLUS, offering optimal fault coverage and maintenance capabilities to a wide range of customers. BoardMaster 8000 PLUS is frequently the test instrument of choice in the areas of telecommunications, transportation, and automotive manufacturing.  Many land forces, air force and navy organizations around the globe use BoardMaster 8000 PLUS to provide on-site test and repair, avoiding time-consuming returns to distant repair sites. For less complex or cost-sensitive needs, System8 Modules may be selected and mounted in a PC-driven housing.  Applications include: PCB testing and troubleshooting, digital/analog IC test, digital/analog V-I test, visual short identification with audible/visual indication of probe distance to short, live board comparison, manufacturing defects analysis, power-on/power-off testing, QA reporting, embedded real-time control, calculation and logging, component and board level testing, digital and analog functional tests , automated test sequences, etc.

Made in Europe by ABI Electronics Ltd., a leading embedded test equipment manufacturer, BoardMaster 8000 PLUS is available now from Saelig Co. Inc.
