SYSTEM 8 Board Fault Locator (BFL)


The SYSTEM 8 Board Fault Locator provides the user with the ability to functionally test all common digital ICs in and out-of-circuit. A combination of industry recognised test techniques provides a high level of fault coverage. Additional tools are provided by the SYSTEM 8 software to further enhance the unit's wide range of applications.


The BFL can be upgraded to include up to 256 channels (in 64 channels steps) which enables live comparison of good and bad boards.

The Board Fault Locator can be fitted inside a standard PC case with PCI interface (one empty CD-ROM bay required) or inside an external case (MultiLink) with USB interface (please contact sales for details).
