Gen3 accepts award for the AutoCAF2+ and CLRHV Bridge

Sep 26, 2022

Gen3, Global leader in SIR, CAF, Solderability, Ionic Contamination & process optimisation equipment, received a 2022 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Test Equipment for its AutoCAF2+ and CLRHV Bridge. The award was announced during a ceremony that took place Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2022 during SMTA Guadalajara in Mexico.

GEN3’s AutoCAF2+ system represents a dramatic improvement over existing CAF test alternatives, and its shielded precision electronics allow state-of-the-art accuracy resistance measurements to be made up to 1014 Ω. One AutoCAF2+ machine can hold between 1 to 16 measurement cards and can measure 16 x 16 (B52), 48 x 5, 32 x 8 or 64 x 4 (B24) test patterns at selectable intervals from as little as 1 minute to days.

Each channel is current limited (1M Ω), which encourages growth of dendrites for failure analysis. The frequent monitoring capability provides a full picture of the electrochemical reactions taking place on a circuit assembly, and provides early trend analysis enabling tests to be curtailed, thus saving considerable test time and money. With the latest demands for high voltage testing, Gen3 developed their CLR HV bridge to work alongside their AutoCAF2+.

The CLRHV assembly is designed to “Bridge” between our AutoCAF2+ measurement system to facilitate CAF or indeed SIR tests to be conducted at up to 1,250 V. With today’s requirements in international standards, particularly in the automotive sector, the CLRHV enables the AutoCAF2+ to test in full compliance of international standards and has successfully finished tests that are frequently more than 4000 hours in duration.

Andy Naisbitt, CEO of Gen3, commented on acceptance of this award “Gen3 is extremely honoured to be receiving an award for one of our innovative products.  We are pleased to have been awarded this recognition in the OEM manufacturing industry. Specialist test equipment is a pivotal part in process control and our product line will ensure you get it right”

Gen3’s award has been accepted by their American Distributor, Dave Trail of Horizon Sales. 

The Mexico Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers during the last 12 months. For more information, visit www.mexicoems.com/mta-awards.
