This multi-station test system, with test stations at different points of the assembly line, interfaces with the automated assembly line controls, tests the sub-assemblies and gathers relevant parameters. It then accepts completed motor/inverter units, flashes previously gathered parameters to the unit’s ECU, and then performs a full load performance run on 100% of all production units. The system also performs fully automated coolant filling and draining as well as coolant system leak checks during testing.
