Embed into Existing Equipment to Conduct Functional Tests of Individual Electronic Circuit Board Components or While Mounted on PCBs

Hioki PCB and substrate inspection equipment leverages our core competency in high precision component testing. The FA1220 an embeddable PCB measuring component that provides extensive function testing capabilities to complement existing automatic testing equipment. Key Features • Functionality has been consolidated in a single, desktop tower that can be easily embedded in existing equipment • Extensive function testing • Electrolytic capacitor and IC reverse insertion detection • Macro-testing function to increase test efficiency • Four-terminal low-resistance measurement for stable measurement of low resistance

FA1220 Main unit only

• Data from the legacy 1101 and 1102 cannot be converted for use by the 1220 (FA1220) because Hioki is unable to supply computers that can run the 1137 Support Software. • Data compatibility between the FA1220/FA1221 and legacy products (1220-00/-01/-02/-11/-50/-51/-52/-55): Although data created for legacy products can be used, such data is not fully compatible with the FA1220/FA1221. It may be necessary to perform stray capacitance acquisition, wiring resistance acquisition, S/O data acquisition, IC data acquisition, and component test debugging. In particular, it may be necessary to reacquire stray capacitance in applications that involve measurement of minuscule capacitance values.
