Multitest Launches Pick-and-Place Handler Option


Reading time ( words)

The Multitest MT2168 pick-and-place handler now offers a ground fault monitoring option. The ground fault monitoring option is part of a feature set that will enhance the value of the production output at the customer site. Ground fault monitoring is an important feature for meeting advanced quality standards.

The ground fault monitoring option is a continuous self-check of the MT2168 to detect grounding issues which may result in pre-damaged devices. Without this option grounding issues may only be detected during regular preventive maintenance, but no information can be obtained such as when the issue actually started and which test lots may be affected. With increasing quality standards ground fault monitoring is considered a mandatory at many production floors.

The ground fault monitoring option can be retrofitted in the field.
