Cembre is the leading Italian manufacturer and one of the leading European manufacturers of electrical compression connectors and tools for their installation.
In the production department Cembre has built an innovative test bench with the implementation of HMI software for tool testing. Test bench has been built to meet the need for a high performance measuring system.
TOOLS for SMART MINDS is required the versatile reliable solution for the management of signals acquired with National Instruments circuit boards and to define a communication protocol that allows HMI written in different languages to use the signals.
Tools produced by Cembre
T4SM has developed a high performance real-time protocol that allows third party programs, developed with different programming languages, to control the operation of the test bench.
The main data acquired are:
National Instruments hardware has allowed Cembre to design the test bench in a modular way, guaranteeing high reliability in measurements and high performance.
The use of different programming languages for the realization of the HMI has allowed Cembre to create a test bench with a simple, intuitive and very innovative interface.
