Test

Gen3 Systems

Gen3 Systems Limited is a specialist British manufacturer of test and measurement equipment used to predict reliability and maintain quality in the production of electronic circuits.

They specialise in:

  • Solderability
  • SIR and CAF reliability measurement techniques
  • Electronic circuit cleaning and cleanliness testing (ROSE Testing)
  • Conformal coating
  • Solder paste analysis

Solderability

The MUST System 3 is the latest technological evolution of the original Multicore Universal Solderability Tester (MUST) that grandfathered all modern solderability test standards. It remains the unquestioned industry benchmark for solderability testing.

Capable of measuring down to 0.001mN the MUST is THE most accurate and comprehensively equipped test system of its type in the world.

The MUST3's dimensions and weight are as follows;- 81L x 34W x 52H cm


Cleanliness

CM Series

Although commonly referred to "Cleanliness Testing" it is in fact a measurement of ionic contamination. This test method has, for over 40 years, been acknowledged as an important Quality Assurance and Process Control tool in the manufacture of electronic circuit boards, components and assemblies.

The CM+ Series utilise a solid gold measuring cell, ballistic amplifier and a vigorous pumping system to achieve superior measurement accuracy of <0.005mS/cm even at very low conductivity values. The CM+ Systems have been designed to avoid polarisation effects between electrodes as might occur when using DC test currents.

CONTAMINOMETERS from Gen3 Systems come in 5 different models and 5 different tank sizes because when selecting a Test System, it is important to use the smallest possible tank size for the circuit under test.


SIR and CAF

AutoSIR 2


Surface Insulation Resistance Testing System. Measuring changes in surface insulation resistance.

The Gen3 Systems AutoSIR 2 system represents a dramatic improvement over existing SIR test alternatives, and its shielded precision electronics allows state-of-the-art accuracy resistance measurements to be made up to 1014 Ω.

The key features of this system are:

  • Measurement Time: 256 Channels <8 seconds
  • Applied Voltage: +1V to 1000V
  • Measurement Range: 106 Ω to 1014 Ω
  • Measurement Method: Continuous on all selected channels
  • Measurement Test Intervals: Fully Selectable from minimum of 1 minute

AutoCAF 2

Conductive Anodic Filament Monitoring System. Measuring the influences of sub-surface electro-chemical reactions.

AutoCAF is able to measure up to 256 individual measurement sites under conditions of high humidity and temperature in accordance with IPC-TM-650 2.6.25 Test Method & IPC 9691 CAF Test Users Guide.

The key features of this system are:

  • Measurement Time: 256 Channels <8 seconds
  • Applied Voltage: +1V to 1000V
  • Measurement Range: 106 Ω to 1014 Ω
  • Measurement Method: Continuous on all selected channels
  • Measurement Test Intervals: Fully Selectable from minimum of 1 minute

Solder Paste Analysis

SPA1000

The SPA 1000 Solder Paste Analyser.

A unique six-in-one test system used to characterise solder paste in compliance with both IPC and IEC Standards.

The SPA 1000 also introduces new process control capability by accurately measuring the suitability of the solder paste prior to its implementation on the production line. It achieves this by determining the "Open-Time" for the paste. It also performs the Slump Test and both of these methods provide a "Go/No Go" answer in less than 30 minutes to ensure minimum delay for the production line.
