New Tool Simplifies Building Custom Pulses For Automotive Transient Testing
AR's TGAR is a transient generator test system for performing transient tests on automotive parts and components. One of TGAR's most unique features is its ability to adapt to ever-changing specifications. Now AR has created the ARTool, which is used in conjunction with TGAR to produce nearly any custom battery pulse, thereby enhancing the flexibility of the TGAR system.
The new custom pulse editing tool is as easy to use as drawing a pulse. It enables a user to build custom pulses simply by piecing together individual function segments. Once the pulse is designed and saved, the pulse is output to the device under test (DUT) with a press of a button.
The ARTool has many useful waveform segments in its toolbox to select from, including sinusoids, triangles, drop-outs, positive pulses, rising and falling ramps, exponential, and an ISO 7637-2 pulse 2b type transient. The tool allows many segments to be strung together to make truly unique waveforms; each waveform can be generated repeatedly as necessary.
The almost infinite flexibility that the ARTool adds to the TGAR system will finally make it easy to keep pace with specifications in an industry where change is constant.
