RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

Fairport, NY, USA: Saelig Company, Inc. (www.saelig.com) has introduced the ABI Electronics' Multiple Instrument Station MIS4, an all-in-one testing tool that provides all commonly required test instruments in one compact programmable hardware module, mounted in a compact case or installed in a PC drive bay. Controlled by ABI's sophisticated SYSTEM 8 Ultimate PC software with a simple yet programmable operator interface, the MIS4 combines eight laboratory instruments: a 3-channel 350 MHz digital storage oscilloscope with sophisticated triggering options and automatic measurements; a 1.1 GHz frequency counter and three 350 MHz counters; a 14-bit dual-channel 25 MHz arbitrary waveform function generator; a fully floating ammeter; a fully floating voltmeter; a fully floating ohmmeter; multi-rail 4-channel power supplies; and 8 programmable I/O channels to cover almost any test and measurement need.
The MIS4 comes complete with the Windows-based TestFlow Manager,a step by step sequence of tests that guides operators during fault-finding or test procedure processes. Along with the specific instruments required for a test, additional instructions, photos, PDFs, videos and other documents can be included in a test sequence design to make complex test procedures understandable and repeatable. Automatic instrument setup speeds up test operations and set-by-step test sequences enables rapid operator training. TestFlow Manager sequential testing reduces the risk of inaccurate measurements and automatically saves all test parameters for a final customized test report. It removes subjective operator data interpretation by using automatic results comparison. This frees an engineer's time by allowing semi-skilled operators to run test procedures repeatedly and accurately. This provides a much faster and more economical testing solution than using traditional oscilloscope, metering and other bench test methods, and can quickly produce the required Pass/Fail or other test and debug results.
Solving troublesome test situations where it takes a long time to set up a test procedure, or where instrument settings become inadvertently changed, MIS4 provides a simple combination of appropriate instruments in one compact, space-saving box. Basic control via its versatile user interface allows problem solving by staff with a range of skill levels. Custom instruments can be created for individual operators to provide an ideal platform for computer-based training or specific or repetitive test routines. The sophisticated TestFlow Manager can remember unlimited test configurations, controlled by access levels with password protection, so that each operator can save instrument settings and recall them in seconds.
Applications include: production test, education, automotive, manufacturing, oil & gas, telecommunications, maintenance, PCB testing and troubleshooting, power-on/power-off testing, QA reporting, automated test sequences, etc.
The MIS4 Multiple Instrument Station featuring eight high specification test and measurement instruments is made in Europe by ABI Electronics Ltd., a leading embedded test equipment manufacturer. It is available now from their USA distributor Saelig Company, Inc. Fairport, NY.
