4 Wire Kelvin upgrades for Flying Probes

The 4 Wire Kelvin Test is used for testing very small resistance of IVH and through holes. It can measure low resistance correctly without being affected by test lead or contact resistance.

 

Specification:

  • Low resistance measurement range 0.5 mOhm – 25 Ohm
  • Low Resistance accuracy +/- 0.1 mOhm
  • Speed of single 4WK measurement <=20ms

Upgrade to the Loc8 Lite Specification

Gardien's unique upgrade package for Speedy580, 588 and Pegasus flying probe test systems is the only one available in the market. The upgrade package enables you to extend the life of equipment while increasing technology capabilities with minimal investment.

Upgrade your existing equipment to achieve the following Loc8 Lite specification:

  • 4 test probes ( 2 front / 2 back)
  • Z-Axis probes with soft touch (no pad markings)
  • Fully automatic camera alignment for easy and faster board registration
  • Pneumatic Stretch frame: For testing thin core, flex and inner layers
  • Quick frame: Used for rigid PCBs – More efficient loading and un-loading of boards.
  • User friendly, high-speed software licensed specifically by Gardien
  • Test floor integration with all leading Universal Grid system suppliers
  • Direct link to the Acceler8® for Test Capture

Please note: Old electronics will be removed and replaced with new SCB4, McAVR, Probeelectronic and new Softtouch probes. The existing motion system will be serviced but not replaced.

Upgrades can be performed on-site reducing downtime and minimising disruption to your business.

Machines suitable for upgrades:

  • Pegasus
  • Speedy 580
  • Speedy 588
