NEW TEST FACILITY
Automated Test System for Testing Gun Control System Assemblies
The Combat Vehicles Research & Development Establishment (CVRDE), Avadi, has designed and developed an Automated Test System for testing Gun Control System Electrical/Electronic Assemblies (ATSEA). The system consists of an industrial PC, interface box, signal conditioner and a programmable power supply, all enclosed in a 19 in rack and a 5 ft console. It is a general purpose test system which can be employed during productionisation of MBT ARJUN, MBT T- 72, and MBT T -90. It also has a variety of other applications.
The Unit Under Test (UUT) is connected to the ATSEA through an interface and a programmable power supply. The signal conditioner unit enables analog, digital and logic signals to be acquired and processed. It also houses customised signal generation cards for testing certain special systems of the tank. The system has been mainly developed for maintaining the production schedules by quickly testing electrical/electronic units on the work bench before fitting these to the tank. During field trials, EME personnel also utilise the system for quick and easy trouble shooting of the faulty units. The UUT can be evaluated for:
The Main Features of the System are:
ATSEA is software
controlled and has self-check facility
