Gen3 Introduces AutoSIR2 + and AutoCAF2+


Reading time ( words)

SIR and CAF testing have become significant demands by the industry in the drive to improve and enhance electronic circuit reliability.

As an example, the evolution of electric vehicles and driverless technology AKA EV’s, show that the three phase developments will be 470V; 850V and 1,250V continuous operation. Testing under these conditions requires extreme health and safety precautions, especially as the tests are performed in damp / heat chambers at typically 850C / 85% RH for up to and beyond 2,500 hours.

Other applications however, show demand for ultra-low voltage testing at

Gen3 has a continuous product development program to meet the ever-changing demands of both our existing and new customers. We are proud to introduce the new AutoSIR2+ and the AutoCAF2+ instruments.

These incorporate new and greatly improved software that provides superior flexibility and which also permit simultaneous tests at up to 4 different voltages. The user can select 3 voltages from the choice of 0V; 3.3V; 5V; 10V; 12.5V; 15V; 50V and 100V. In addition, by using an external power supply, an additional test may, simultaneously, be run at up to 1,250V.

The Gen3 Systems AutoSIR2+ system represents a dramatic improvement over existing SIR test alternatives, and its shielded precision electronics allows for state-of-the-art accuracy resistance measurements to be made up to 1014 Ω.
