Testing equipment. (Hardware/Software).

TestLink software allows test equipment users to get more productivity out of any test equipment, according to the company. Users need to know the results of incoming inspection tests to assure prompt adjustments on out-of-spec material. Traditionally, test results are viewed on the equipment's display, transcribed to a test log and presented to the quality department for review and evaluation. Establishing pass-fail criteria and comparison to previous lots can be a slow, paper-intensive process, according to the company. Although test equipment is often used as an individual test device, most test equipment is said to have a digital output which can transmit the test results over RS-232 or PC network wiring to a PC running TestLink. TestLink acquires the data immediately (and without transcription errors) and displays it in a user-customized test plan. The data from test instruments in remote locations can now be collected, stored and analyzed in a central PC and viewed from multiple locations. Data are compared to the pass-fail values that are entered in the test plan. (Testing Machines, 2910 Expressway Dr., South Islandia, NY 11749)
