Intepro Systems releases PowerStar 6 Test Executive
26 April 2015
The latest version of Intepro's PowerStar test software includes a number of new features designed to make testing easier, including an expanded test library that allows users to 'program without coding'.
Using a simple drag and drop method, it is possible to create a test program with the convenience and ease of fill-in-the-blank test screens. PowerStar 6 will now operate with high speed 64 Bit processors and is available as a stand-alone product in three different tiers; Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
The test library allows for instrument set-up and device under test (DUT) output test parameters to be defined using an easy-to-use drag and drop menu from the library into the test program sequence.
Test screen data is entered with numbers or with the use of variables to provide great flexibility in the test execution. In addition, defining inputs and output separates the test hardware from the test code, making PowerStar 6 hardware independent and allowing customers to execute the same test program on different system configurations.
PowerStar 6 is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7 and 8 in both 32 and 64 bit. It is also compatible with the trial version of Windows 10. The expanded test library includes new ac loads, dc loads, high power ac sources, scanners, measurement devices and various instrument communication buses, including I2C, SPI, RS232, TTL Serial, 1553, Mod Bus, and CAN.
While PowerStar 5 was limited to Microsoft Access or SQL data types, PowerStar 6 offers the addition of XML/ATML compatible files. It can also export results to Microsoft Excel CSV files. Report templates are provided in XSL and are definable at a global or individual program level. These templates include test report, failure report, pass slip, and fail slip. They also let saved scope plots to be included in the report templates. A report generator lets users create custom templates, reports and analysis.
