This optional 'simplified' GUI is suitable for performing basic cable and harness pass/fail tests such as might occur on the production line. The new interface is compatible with Touch Screen operation, and isolates the worker from CableEye features and controls superfluous to their assigned task.
This Simplified Automation User Interface feature comes with all new CableEye products as part of Version 5-B1188 software. It is also available as a software update which may be purchased by itself (Item 726B), or downloaded for free from our Customer Support site with a valid Warranty. CableEye software running Version 5-B1188 or newer has this option available.
Simplified Automation Screen, Plus consists of the Basic view, with the addition of Re-Test, Probe, and Continuous Test buttons that can be used when the test is paused to permit rework and analysis:
To ready the Simplified Automation User Interface, qualified personnel/management prepare Automation Scripting through the automatic test window (macros) of the main CableEye software. This customized Automation Script may be saved to the desktop as a shortcut to be used on production workstations. Production workers launch the Simplified Automation Screen from the shortcut on their workstation ... which may be a Touch Screen Computer ... and initiate the test sequence embedded within.
1 - The CableEye screenshot on the right shows how to enable the Simplified Automation Screen in a simple macro example. The first instruction activates the new screen, and you can easily add this instruction to every macro in your database. As usual, you can go to the CableEye Help Menu to see a more detailed explanation.
2 - Note: You will need to disable an aditional setting in the preferences menu to activate this new feature. In the preferences menu, go to the Control tab and uncheck Legacy Macro Support Only, just like in the screenshot in the right.
3 - To create a macro shortcut in the desktop, simply duplicate the CableEye icon in your desktop. Then rename the new icon and right click then select Properties. Finally, add the following at the end of the Target: "MacroName.mac /exec". Replace "MacroName" with the name of the macro that you want to create the shortcut for.
Enjoy the increased flexibility offered by our Simplified Automation Screen feature on your production floor today!
We have used our CAMI CableEye test equipment for over three years.
