Founded with a vision in 1983, MCD Elektronik is the

world‘s leading supplier of measurement and control

systems. These systems are used in nearly every

sector of quality assurance, committed to provide the

most complex testing and automotive technology. We

convince through hearty concepts and precise and

reliable measurement technology.

Therefore, the motto of the book is “Sharp senses for

perfection“. We want to shape the future rather than

chase trends.

Today,  you  fi nd  our  clientele  in  more  than  45

countries  and  local  offi ces  in  Hungary  and  China

help us serve our customers locally. In our newly built

MCD center we hardly have the time to look back at

33 years of creativity and innovation since management

and staff are constantly full of new ideas and energy.

In my anniversary speech I ventured a look into the fu-

ture:

“Our creativity and innovation will continue to lead us.

In the future, we will keep working on developing our

products and tackling challenges and new tasks with

enthusiasm. From today‘s perspective, the future looks

very good. We will be in a position to specialize more

and more in the growing demands of our customers in

full competence and enthusiasm. In addition to the high-

est attained technical standards, we will continue to do

everything in accordance to our personal and corporate

philosophy in terms of care for our customers. Service

and availability will remain our top priorities.

Based on these proven pillars, the healthy growth of our

company will stand strong and fi rm...“

As Philip Rosenthal said, “He who ceases to become

better has ceased to be good.“

During the planning phase, we placed our main fo-

cus on the needs of our customers, employees and

of course, an optimal work fl ow. We feel comfortab-

le here at our headquarters which has become more

than just a workplace.

Our various communication centers serve as a place

where we can hold informal conversations, exchange

business information, or develop new ideas. We now

have plenty of room for new ideas and for healthy

growth.

Everything  has  been  thought  of,  high-speed  fi ber

optic data links, training rooms, cafeteria with catering,

meeting rooms, show rooms and a gym for our emplo-

yees. There was nothing left out.

Our  offi ces  in  Hungary  and  China  can  even  benefi t

from direct access to our data center.

We are very pleased with our headquarters and even

more so to have accomplished a big step towards the

future.

On November 2011, we moved into our new headquarters in the industrial park in the ‘Dammfeld’ area in

Birkenfeld, Germany. Since then, we had the pleasure of welcoming many visitors and are pleased with the

consistent positive impressions left behind.

History

In 1983 the ground stone was laid for a successful

future. Four young men had a vision of a product

that can be used worldwide with quality superior to

all competition. In their spare time, they developed

an attenuator to control the RF level of transmission

and test equipment. After many long hours of deve-

lopment and testing, their vision became a reality. An

attenuator with incredible durability and precision was

developed. Shortly after, they found a Danish compa-

ny, which wanted to integrate this attenuator into their

stations and to market it worldwide. It had already

been clear then that the preparation of the calibration

line was only the beginning of what was to come. The

passion for customer-specific measurement technolo-

gy was already present and only growing.

The success of this product has shown us that it pays

off to approach seemingly impossible tasks with ex-

pertise and creativity. And even today, we realize eve-

ry single idea for the same reasons as we did back

then.

Today

MCD is a privately held company that delivers the

world‘s most complex testing and automation tech-

nology. The systems are used by major corporations

as well as for production of medium-sized companies

and testing of electronic and mechatronic assemblies.

With the test systems of MCD it is possible to test,

for example, vehicle components, such as electronic

control devices, steering wheel modules, switches, ra-

dios and navigation systems. They range from simple

test fixtures for product validation through to fully au-

tomated test cells, which are integrated into produc-

tion lines. Customers in the automotive, aerospace,

medicine, energy and household appliances sectors

have their test systems developed and manufactured

by MCD.

Our developments are innovative. This is because

they come from the application and they come from

our customers. Often our customers are the innova-

tors. On the basis of good cooperation with our com-

mitment, we build MCD measurement technology

further.

We provide everything from the concept to commissi-

oning, on site.  At MCD, you receive everything from

one hand.

...is measurement technology to the decimal point. We love the challenge; therefore, we develop customized

innovative test systems “Made in Germany“ with highly skilled technicians and engineers.

MCD has set yet another high

standard by establishing its

new headquarters in a new in-

dustrial park. The departments

have been expanded and the

developments are consistent-

ly headed towards the future.

The vision of a MCD head-

quarters has become reality.

[2 VISIONS AND 4 YOUNG

MEN]

[FIRST FAIR]

[MEASURE, TEST, MATCH

WITH MCD-INTELLECT]

[ENDURANCE TEST]

Under our motto, „To make

the impossible possible“, MCD

presented itself at the Produc-

tronica Fair 1987 in Munich for

the first time. the interest of the

visitors was enormous. Since

then, MCD has grown conti-

nuously.

MCD develops many special

devices and machines for the

most different requirements,

and tests, among other things,

radio clocks, automotive com-

ponents or Pay-Tv decoder.

One of the special develop-

ments of that period included

a test-bench for long-term

testing of gas-powered hair

curlers. Over a time period of

several 1000 hours, measu-

rement data for temperature,

start-up behavior, gas con-

sumption, heat-up curves as

well as cool-off values had to

be recorded and evaluated.

During the PRODUCTRONI-

CA in Munich, MCD presented

measurement systems, con-

trol functions, and the MCD

software with integrated core

interpreter.

MCD continues on its path

of growth and establishes an

operational subsidiary in the

Quality requires care and reliability to the decimal point.

We take care of that.

background image

15

Together with our customers we design test systems

that ensure the quality of their products. Thus, quality

and customer satisfaction is our highest priority and is

the basis of our daily work. The framework of our daily

work forms our quality management, which is fulfilled

by our MCD employees. Here, each employee can

state his/her suggestions for improvement from his/

her experience. These are discussed and analyzed

at our QM meetings. That way we continuously make

improvements in order to optimize customer-oriented

work processes.

In addition, two internal audits are conducted annu-

ally, in which our quality team ensures that the quality

of MCD is constantly evolving. All of these procedures

are reviewed by our team. Through the use of custo-

mer satisfaction surveys, employee surveys and inter-

nal audits, we regularly put ourselves to the test. This

quality is certified by TÜV Süd according to

DIN EN ISO 9001

certification.

What also distinguishes our Quality

Years of experience -

We have been active and successful in the market

since 1983.

Fast Service -

In emergencies we are on the job. In case of failure,

our technicians can be there within 48-hours, regard-

less of location.

Full Service -

We offer everything from concept to commissioning

and completion  of a project and help you find solu-

tions to your problems.

Dependability -

We know the competence and performance capabili-

ties of our products in detail. This functional safety of

our products is an excellent foundation for customer-

specific applications.

Sustainability -

Requirements may change; therefore the usage of

your measurement system should adapt to change as

well. No problem for MCD: Our instruments and sys-

tems are expandable and can grow with your needs.

Today in the development department, tomorrow in

production.

MCD Promotes Young Forces Of Tomorrow

background image

21

We pass on our strengths and push ahead vigorously with the training of professionals. Through our commit-

ment, we want to be a role model and help shape our future economy and the region.

It is very essential for MCD to not only develop

new products, but also to develop new business. This

requires  having  fi rst-class  professionals  on  board

and promoting their potentials. Just as MCD had

enthusiasm and passion for technology then, we want

to encourage and inspire young people with that same

vibe today.

Every year, MCD hires 2-3 trainees/students to be

trained. The trainees are introduced and integrated in

almost  every  department.  With  confi dence  and  res-

ponsible tasks, we want to awaken joy and enthusi-

asm at work. It is important for us to have experienced

staff working closely with the young talents. That way,

both sides can learn from each other – hands-on ex-

perience on the one hand, and new innovative ideas

on the other.

In addition to the numerous training courses, we offer

young people and students the opportunity to get a

glimpse of work in real life. We encourage interns to

get involved in all our departments in order to facilitate

the correct career choice.

We also offer students qualifi ed support for their the-

ses and internships. The work will not only be put on

paper but implemented as well. It is not uncommon

here that product development is promoted and mar-

keted.

In cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce, the

Student Engineering Academy (SIA) and the Profes-

sional Education GmbH, workshops and project days

for pupils and students are organized by the trainees.

Here, students are allowed, for example, to write soft-

ware programs that perform acoustic tests on their

own MP3 players and then present their fi ndings. In

this case, girls especially lose touch aversion to tech-

nical careers. In cooperation with these institutions,

we encourage new methods of practice-oriented lear-

ning and the young professionals of tomorrow.

MCD International

MCD  Test  Systems  are  present  in  45  countries  worldwide.  To  remain  competitive  for  a  long  time  in  the

international  market  and  to  be  able  to  guarantee  permanent  on-site  support,  MCD  branch  offi ces  in

Budapest,Hungary and Shanghai,China were established.

Due to the growth of the Eastern European and Asia-

Pacifi c  region,  especially  in  the  automotive  sector,

and the increase of demand for on-site-service, MCD

founded its subsidiaries there. Controlling and plan-

ning of projects, as well as the most of the added va-

lue, still takes place at the headquarters in Birkenfeld,

Germany.

MCD  is  proud  to  present  confi dent  representatives

in  its  branch  offi ces  in  Shanghai  and  Budapest.  Its

members play a vital role in the processes of project

preparation, comissioning and training, as well as the

realization and presentation at local trade fairs.

So, in close cooperation with the AHK Greater

China, part of the German Chamber of Industry

and Commerce, it was possible to establish an

„offi ce-in-offi ce“  concept  for  the  MCD  subsidiary

in  Shanghai.  Since  October  2014,  the  permanent

on-site service represented by Chief Representative

of China, Lance Wen, was able to start its engage-

ment. Thereby, MCD offers the possibility to remain

also an extensive after-sales services besides the

local  service  support  for  the  Asian-Pacifi c  region.

The positive development and the huge interest of

customers make it possible to expand the branch

offi ce in Shanghai in the near future.

Already in the year 2010 MCD created a basis for a

branch  offi ce  in  Budapest,  Hungary.  By  founding  a

subsidiary under the leadership of Business Develop-

ment Manager Labib Feidy and Chief Representative

of Hungary, Gergely Boross, a greater focus on the

Eastern European market was placed.

To be able to face up to the large amout of customer

demand, the international presence was strengthened

by Attila Puskás at the end of the year 2015. In this way

the technical support in Hungary was also ensured.

At the relevant trade fairs, for example the NEPCON

in Shanghai or the Electronica and Productronica in

Munich, the representatives support the MCD trade

fair teams, allowing the customers to have a personal

contact at these events.

All the MCD representatives are trained periodically

at the headquarters in Birkenfeld to guarantee the ex-

pected quality of service. They work in close contact

to the MCD Business Development, that assumes the

central processing of customers‘ projects.

TestManager Classic Edition

The TestManager is a software development kit for the

creation of applications for test systems. The areas of

application are screening systems, board testing, final

inspection and process control.

It also includes a variety of interfaces (IEEE-488, RS-

232, TCP/IP, CAN, LIN...). In addition, the program

offers an interpreter with connections to DLLs, COM,

ActiveX, .NET assemblies. Of course, the MCD Test-

Manager is expandable for customer-specific require-

ments and therefore always adapts on the individual

needs of the customer.

Essential features are a designable graphic user

interface, a variety of software and hardware inter-

faces with extensive test monitors and a powerful

interpreter, with direct integration of external DLLs,

COM +/ActiveX-.NET - and LabView® - components.

LabView® VI‘s can be integrated in the runtime or

development environment. This allows TestManager

to be utilized as a sequencer for the Labview® VI‘s.

Integration takes place via the interpreter of the Test-

Manager or simply through configuration as a compo-

nent of the test sequence.

Among the software interfaces are TCP/IP, database

and web interfaces. The self-explanatory MCD inter-

preter language is just as easily programmable as in

C#, VB and Java #, without an additional development

environment. With the assistance of the type-manage-

ment, test procedures for various sorts of devices and

structures are summarized. Through variant creation,

existing operations can be modified without requiring

them to be recreated. The selection and charging pro-

cesses of the sample to be tested during operation

can be done automatically.

Integrated Toolmonitors are available to provide assis-

tance during the program development cycle as well

as the commissioning or troubleshooting phases. The

representation of layout data and test-point coordi-

nates, the breakdown of all communication protocols

(e.g. CAN, LIN, MOST, RS232,…), the display and

modification of existing switching conditions, or the si-

gnal tracking using voltage and current measurement,

signal analysis, or via oscilloscopes are various ex-

amples of what can be done. In addition, an integrated

debugger can view and control the test process step

by step. Multiple instances of the TestManager can be

intelligently managed and controlled.

Critical for the analyses to be performed are the test

procedures themselves. Individual sub-tasks for the

units are divided into separate test steps and then

processed sequentially.

The individual test steps are then created by the ap-

plication developer within the TestManager. Speci-

fic methods or modes are provided in case complex

functions occur.

The TestManager is the universal standard software for application-specific measurement and test stations in

the automotive and electronic industries. It is simple, modularly scalable, inexpensive and efficient.

This is especially relative for access to connected hard-

ware and also for linkages to external components, such

as databases or the process-control engineering. By in-

tegrating .Net Frameworks and additional programming

languages, the application developer has access to an

almost endless number of pre-built components and tools

that can be integrated into the test sequence. These com-

ponents can enhance the visualization, the data exchange

on the intranet, complex calculations or the integration of

external components. With the help of the constructed

test steps, the application developer ultimately genera-

tes a fl ow chart for the entire analysis. In conjunction with

the sequential control of the TestManager, both individual

testing as well as parallel testing of multiple samples are

realized.

Hardware

For data acquisition, standard measurement systems from

the MCD-Universal-Measurement System (MCD UMS)

family are used. Different modules in Euro-format, such

as digital and analog converters, multiplexers, frequency

generators and counters, and many others can fi nd their

use  in  the  MCD-UMS.  The  system  can  be  confi gured

according to the desired requirements of the inspection task.

External instruments can be controlled serially or via IEEE

488, Ethernet, Serial or USB. With dissimilar adaptions

and the above-described software concept, various tests

can be performed with this system. This allows both

the use and development of prototype and small batch

production as well as for series production.

Toolmonitor Graphical Analysis

For the analysis, the path is recorded via an encoder,

the torque or the pressing force is recorded via a force

sensor and the switching points are recorded via the

test item. These signals are displayed depending on

their course and if required can be substantially analy-

zed.   The position of the switching points is controlled

and extreme values are determined. The components

used, amongst others include filters, window functions

and failure lines.

The required window areas and failure lines can be

edited using a graphic designer. Any number of win-

dows  and  failure  lines  can  be  defined.  The  failure

lines can be generated automatically by means of the

software from so-called „golden devices“ and can be

edited later if necessary. The analysis of the recor-

ded signals and measured values can be exported in

various formats. All recorded signals and measured

values can be exported in various formats.

The program interface can be freely designed and wi-

dely adapted to user requirements. Once the configu-

rations have been created they can be stored in the

project file and loaded when needed. Using an integ-

rated script engine all measurements and settings can

be automated.  Via third-party software, the Toolmoni-

tor can be completely operated remotely.

The  Toolmonitor  for  the  force/displacement  measurement  is  a  universal  and  flexible  way  to  analyze  force/

displacement characteristic curves which are required for e.g. on the switch test.

Toolmonitor ResourceManager

This Toolmonitor, which is shared by all test positions,

administers the test procedures and gives „permission“

in blocks to run test. Time-consuming test sequences

e.g. RF Generator, WiFi or on-board programming,

in which a parallel processing of the individual position

is possible, can be managed by the so called

ResourceManager. If a certain hardware is occupied

it  will  try  also  to  test  in  this  hardware  configuration,

or -if possible- work off another block.

Thus, the test time is reduced to a minimum without

much hardware effort. This handling is independent

of the version that is being tested, even across PC‘s.

In combination with TestManager, ResourceManager

serves to control the process control system for test

systems, through which multiplex devices will be

tested simultaneously and asynchronously while

using the existing hardware for the respective measu-

rement in a shared manner.

In summary, working with ResourceManager provides

the following capabilities:

•  Locking hardware used in a shared manner
•  Optimization of the test process when test blocks
will be performed using the hardware available
•  Simultaneous and asynchronous testing of
mutiple DUTs, also different types of devices
•  Sychronization of the test processes

For third-party software, the Toolmonitor can be fully

remote controlled.  COM/DCOM or .Net-Assembly

is used as an interface. This allows the Toolmonitor

to be integrated in a large number of applications

(Microsoft Visual Studio

®

(C#, C++, Visual Basic),

Microsoft Office

(e.g. Excel

), Open Office

Toolmonitor AudioAnalyzer

The MCD AudioAnalyzer is coupled to the computer

system via USB interface. The input range extends

from 1mV to 50V. The generator is controllable in the

range up to 15 V. Besides the use of the AudioAnaly-

zer as a stand-alone application it is also possible to

remotely control or query all the functions and values

of other Windows programs. For this purpose a COM

Client/Server interface is used.

For the analysis of audio signals, in addition to fre-

quency  and  various  signal  strength  measurements,

measurements of THD and FFT spectrum are possib-

le. Through the integrated signal generators, different

wave and modulation forms are generated.

The surface of the Toolmonitor AudioAnalyzer can be

widely adapted and adjusted to varying applications.

All functions of the AudioAnalyzer can be controlled

with the help of a COM Server interface with other

Windows programs. The measured values obtained

can be integrated well into the different programs.

Special programming knowledge is not required. For

input, both analog and digital signal sources are pos-

sible.

Features / Characteristics

•  Modern and user friendly interface

•  Extremely flexible design of user interface

•  Efficient FFT analysis

•  Powerful generators (AM, FM, PM-Modulation)

•  Easy to use filter

and phase response

•  Typical measurement times of a frequency

response 0-24 kHz at 200-300 ms

•  Sweep functions

•  Load and save all settings via Project Files

•  Remote control of all foreign systems

•  Analog, digital inputs can be selected via the

sound card or MCD Analyzer

•  Adaptation of Audio Gain Controller of

measurement signals

The AudioAnalyzer is a software-based solution to analyze and generate analog and digital signals in the audio

field. The audio signals are recorded on a sound card and made available to the AudioAnalyzer in digital form.

Generated signals will be put out again.

Toolmonitor Data Manager

Statistics and reports can be updated manually or au-

tomatically. Extensive statistics and analysis functions

are available to the user.

Through the use of a powerful and fast real-time da-

tabase, measurement data and response time can be

evaluated at high speed. All measured values and test

results can be accessed directly during the test ope-

ration.

There  are  extensive  filter  functions  to  choose  the

measured data from. The measured data can also be

accessed using a SQL interface.

This  allows  the  creation  of  user-specific  rather  than

standardized queries to be evaluated.

The main statistical evaluations are:

•  Statistics of test results and the test duration
•  Error statistics (usually the quickest/distribution)
•  Statistics of the measured values
(distribution/variance)
•  Analysis of machine and process capability

Customer-specific  evaluations  can  be  added  by  the

user. Once created, reports can be saved in project

files and called upon when needed.

The program interface can be made widely available

and adaptable to the user requirements.

An integrated reporting module of predefined or free-

ly configurable reports can be provided in all reports.

These reports can be exported in a variety of formats

(Word, Excel, PDF, Text, XML, HTML, etc.).

With the help of an integrated script engine, all evalu-

ations and reports are automatically created and sa-

ved. For third-party software, the Toolmonitor can be

fully remote controlled. To supply measured data and

statistics on the intranet, Toolmonitor Data Manager

automatically updates and exports the info as WEB

reports.

The Toolmonitor Data Manager has been developed as an additional module for the TestManager CE Software.

It provides a simple way to access and evaluate the measured values, which are generated in the test mode.

The program can be operated self-sufficient to the MCD TestManager Classic Edition.

Toolmonitor Logic Designer

These modules connect inputs and outputs of hard-

ware components with variables, functions and

events that are integrated via script engine. Hardware

components could be MCD‘s mechanical control units

MIO1616 and PIC8IO or the Sensor Actuator Box.

Basically, the user interface of the Toolmonitor Logic

Designer includes two utilization modes. These are

design mode, for the creation of logical circuits and

the execution mode, which is used for the testing of

the circuits.

With design mode, it is possible to use these logical

modules and standard electronic circuits:

•  INPUT and OUTPUT
•  AND, OR and XOR
•  Pulse-/Edge tags
•  FlipFlop tags
•  Global variables

•  Flash modules
•  Debounce modules
•  Delay modules
•  HIGH and LOW
•  Script modules
•  Comment elements

The logic modules „INPUT“, „OUTPUT“, „Global

Variable“ and „Script“ allow a smooth integration of

the created circuits to other MCD Toolmomitors, for

example to Toolmonitor SerIO, via „Virtual Interface“.

All modules can be variably configured. Beneath the

specific  configurations  of  the  modules,  commands

such as positioning or description texts are generally

available.

•  Control unit MIO1616
•  Adapter CPU
•  Pass/Fail monitor
•  Unknown (core functions for non-specific
customer requests)

All these devices are addressed by the SerIO protocol,

which has been standardized by MCD Elektronik. This

offers the possibility to control digital and analog

inputs and outputs or to send and receive freely

definable or stored telegrams. With a logging function

received data can be grabbed, sequenced or secured.

The program interface can largely be designed with an

open hand and customized to the users‘ requirements.

Once created, configurations can be saved in project

files  and  loaded  as  needed.  All  telegrams  can  be

sent and received automatically with the help of an

integrated script engine. Asynchronous processes can

be stored in the Toolmonitor, which can also be entirely

remote controlled using third-party software.

COM/DCOM or .Net-Assembly is used as an inter-

face. This allows the Toolmonitor SerIO to be integrated

The USB hub has six downstream ports, which can

be individually switched on and off via USB. When

switching it off, the supply voltage (+5 V) and the data

lines on the semiconductor switches are separated.

Ports one to four are turned off after a reset, whereas

five and six are turned on (for keyboard, mouse, etc.).

The USB hub can operate solely on the USB host

(bus-powered), or in addition with a 5 VDC power sup-

ply with at least 17 W output power or output current

of 3.3 A (self-powered). Connection or disconnection

of the external power supply resets the stroke and the

switch ports in their default state. The connector for

the external power supply is a DC device socket. The

polarity is arbitrary.

Features

•  On and off via USB ports
•  Separation of power supply and data
lines by a turned-off port
•  LEDs to indicate switched ports
•  Automatic detection and switching
between bus- and self-powered modes
•  USB compliant renumbering of hub and connected
devices when connecting or disconnecting the
power supply
•  Back feed from the power supply to the USB host
•  Automatic shut-off of congested USB ports with
notification of USB hosts
•  Robust metal housing

The MCD Toolmonitor USB hub serves as an operator interface for the MCD USB hubs.

USB hub 2.0 8-Port, switchable

The MCD Toolmonitor USB hub serves as an operator interface for the MCD USB hubs.

This USB hub has eight downstream ports, which

can be turned on and off individually via USB. When

switching off the supply voltage (+5 V) and the data

lines are separated by a semiconductor switch. The

control is via the Toolmonitor USB hub (PC software).

Whether or not ports are active after switching can

all be configured and stored. Each USB port can be

used as standard port (SDP), load-in line (CDP) or

as a charger connection (DCP)  and provides the

connected device up to 1.5A. Additionally to the USB

ports, the USB hub still has a 8-channel relay multi-

plexer, with a centrally supplied voltage individually on

each port (max. 48V) and independently switchable,

e.g. Device supply with a voltage other than 5V. The

connection is made via 4mm banana plugs. Whether

or not and which ports are to be active after switching

on the hubs (for example, access to the mouse or key-

board to have) can be stored in non-volatile memory.

Via a button on the device, one can either temporarily

shut down all ports or restore the previous switching

state of all ports. A storable device number helps dis-

tinguish multiple USB hub 8 on a PC.

For third-party software, the Toolmonitor USB hub

can be completely remote controlled. COM / DCOM

or a .Net comes - Assembly are used as an interface.

This allows the Toolmonitor USB hub to be involved

in a variety of applications (MCD TestManager CE,

USB hub 3.0 8-Port, switchable

This USB hub 3.0 has eight downstream ports,

which can be turned on and off individually via USB.

When switching off the supply voltage (+5V) and

the data lines are separated by a semiconductor

switch. A useful feature is that there are additional

connections at each port on the connected devices

that can be supplied with an externally supplied

voltage of maximum 30VDC. A storable number in the

device helps distinguish multiple USB hubs on a PC.

The control is via the Toolmonitor USB hub

(PC software). Whether or not ports are active after

switching can all be configured and stored. This USB

hub 3.0 has eight downstream ports, which can be

turned on and off individually via USB. When switching

off, the supply voltage (+5V) and the data lines are

separated by a semiconductor switch. The ports can

also be switched manually via buttons. Optionally,

sending commands through the USB 3.0 host con-

nection or the additionally available USB 2.0 port is

possible.

Each USB-Port can be  used as standard port (SDP),

load-in line (CDP) or as a charger connection (DCP)

and provides the connected device up to 1.5A.

Additionally to the USB ports, the USB hub still has a

8-channel relay multiplexer, with a centrally supplied

voltage individually on each port (max. 48V) and

independently switchable, e.g. device supply with a

voltage other than 5V. The relay channels can also

be used for different and independent switching

operations. For third-party software, the Toolmonitor

USB hub can be completely remote controlled.

AudioAnalyzer

The AudioAnalyzer from MCD Elektronik is used for stimulation and analysis of audio signals in both the analog

and the digital domains. The S/PDIF audio signals can be analyzed or placed to the analog outputs. In conjunc-

tion with the MCD AudioAnalyzer Software, a complete AudioAnalyzer with excellent measurement data can be

realized. The input range can be switched in steps between 1-2-5-10 and between 1mV to 50V. This Analyzer

is connected to the PC that is to be controlled via a USB interface.

The following connections are available:

The AudioAnalyzer.Net is a software based solution for the analysis and generation of analog and digital sig-

nals in the audio range. In this case, standard PC components with Microsoft® Windows XP or below operating

systems can be used (including Windows7®). For analysis of the audio signals in addition to the frequency and

signal strength of various measurements, measurements of the distortion factor and the FFT Spectrum are

possible. Through the integrated signal generators, different waves and modulation forms are generated. The

surface of the AudioAnalyzer can be widely adapted and adjusted to varying applications. All functions of the

AudioAnalyzer can be controlled using a COM server interface from other Windows programs. The obtained

values can also be integrated into a variety of programs.

IMAGING

The toolmonitors Vision and COGNEX Vision are

already utilized succesfully for optical tests in the

automotive industry. Especially in complex tests of

external or internal mirrors, MCD Vision has establis-

hed its test security. This tool supports all of the test

procedures, from mirror position, arching, measuring

and marking of mirrors up to testing of connector

contours and illumination.

The Toolmonitor COGNEX is characterized by testing

accurately with operating device units, parking brake

switches and power window assemblies, as well as

Wi-Fi modules, boards or connectors.

The software component Sherlock Vision is actually

used for completeness checks of infotainment

systems. The software also tests the color of connector

plugs, the swash circuit inspection of contacts, the

presence of labels and markings, as well as the

wholeness of screws.

Thresholds for the tests are created and the testing

of the image acquisition to the analysis are performed

within the MCD Toolmonitors. Using an integrated

script engine, it is possible to further integrate custo-

mized algorithms.

For third-party software, the Toolmonitor can be ful-

ly remote controlled. COM/DCOM or .Net-Assembly

is used as an interface. This allows the Toolmonitor

Robotics to be integrated in a large number of appli-

cations (Microsoft Visual Studio

®

(C#, C++, Visual Ba-

sic),    Microsoft  Office

®

(e.g. Excel

®

),  Open  Office

®

,

LabView

®

, MCD TestManager CE).

With the Toolmonitors „Vision“, „Sherlock Vision“ and „COGNEX Vision“ MCD Elektronik has introduced three

solutions  for  visual,  industrial  quality  assurance. All  these  imaging  packages  are  based  on  a  flexible  MCD

Toolmonitor and a camera system.

Calibration, Service

MCD’s top priorities are service and availability. Our service staff will accompany the projects from the beginning

of the technical aspect, through to commissioning at the customer’s base and also ensure a smooth operation

of our systems.

Furthermore, the service team advises our customers

on the system operation and maintenance, through

revisions, updated systems or individual components

and supplies spare parts.

From our service center in Birkenfeld we can log into

data networks of MCD systems all over the world, to

detect possible causes and provide the necessary

service and repair requirements quickly. This custo-

mer focus has been rewarded with top marks in sur-

veys.

If, despite our high quality standards, the customer

experiences a problem with our test systems, our ser-

vice team can be on site quickly to fix the error and

minimize the non-productive work time.

Calibration

Our universal measurement systems (UMS) - are

associated with the boards and calibrated immedia-

tely prior to delivery. The calibration equipment is of

course traceable to the National Institute for Science

and Technology. The calibration equipment used is

documented in the calibration certificate and is trace-

ably subject to regular inspection.

The customer’s calibrated equipment is provided with

an interval label that includes the date of calibrati-

on and required recalibration. The results of the ca-

libration  are  stored  in  a  calibration  certificate  with  a

separate measuring protocol and deposited in a data-

base. Upon request, we would be pleased to perform

a recalibration at your site.
