DeaR ReaDeRs, Everywhere in the world reliable electric power is key to economic development, education, and medical care. In order to secure the reliability of the electricity supply, power engineers require reliable tools for their daily tasks. Therefore, we put great effort into the manufacturing, testing and calibration of our products. have you ever asked yourself how we test and calibrate your OMICrOn test sets? When it comes to manufacturing components, we work together with selected, local partners with whom we have long-term relationships. After manufacturing, they run the first automated tests such as a flying probe and optical inspection on every single board. When we get the modules, they are tested again, so that only tested modules are assembled with a device. Then we run several tests on each device to find any potential failures that would show up under “stress”. We start with a high voltage test, followed by a 72 h heat run-in or “burn-in” test, with alternating periods of high and low temperatures, while the devices are in operation. during calibration and adjustment, we warm up the device to consider heat dependent component drifting. We collect all of the data and use it for analysis, reporting and making constant improvements. Feel free to read more about our efforts to serve you with the highest quality test sets – the article on page 6 provides an insight to this process.
