KT-3600 FlexCell NT - Automated In-Line Test Handler

Facilitate the automated testing of PCBs in an in-line or stand-alone process.

The FlexCell NT is a high efficient test handler with a directly integrated test system to be fused into fully automated electronic assembly processes. The integrated test system offers cableless contacting from the test probe to the instrument, ensuring zero-failure operation over long production period.

Integrated ABex Test System

  • The integrated ABex-based system is equipped with all necessary instruments and switching boards depending on the specific test requirements for functional test and/or in-circuit test, AOI test, boundary scan test as well as in-system programming.
  • Integral component of the ABex design is a signal backplane and a powerful terminal module concept, allowing cable less signal interconnections across all instruments and system modules. Depending on the test configuration a multiple stage contacting lift can be implemented if necessary.
  • The test system is vertically integrated into the handler and possesses a cableless DUT interface to the DUT-specific fixture kit of the handler.
Fixture Kits
  • According to the test requirements we outfit the test handler optionally with a cableless or a cable-based fixture kit. The cableless variant offers big advantages, notably stable electrical conditions and an increased reliability of operation. At DUT sizes extending dimensions of 300 mm x 422 mm we are equipping the handler with cable-based fixture kits.
  • Optionally, we are offering the Konrad micro alignment technology to be used on our fixture kits for reliable and precise contacting of extremely small structures.
