Exatron Safety Warnings


Typically, the handler is simply one part of a complete test system. It is the responsibility of the company purchasing the handler to properly train all handler operators in all of the safety practices required for every component of the test system. The following safety procedures must be followed at all times. WARNING! Hi-Pot testers contain high voltage. Do not defeat the interlocks. WARNING! Keep fingers, hair, and clothing away from any moving parts on the handler. Its motors are very powerful and can cause severe injury.

Chapter 1: Safety and Support

WARNING! Always reset all motors before running the machine. Do not run it without homing the motors. WARNING! Never try to stop an action of the handler with your hands or any other device. To stop the handler, press the EMO (emergency stop) button or press the Pause key on the control panel.

Figure 1-1: Pause Button on Control Panel (Left); Emergency Stop Button (Right)

WARNING! If your Exatron handler is equipped with safety covers, never operate the handler without them. Never remove the safety covers. Never defeat any electrical interlock switch supplied with the handler. Exatron specifically disclaims responsibility and/or liability for any injury which occurs as a result of any interlock being defeated and/or bypassed, or for any injury which occurs as a result of any fixed cover being removed during operation. Using compressed air can be hazardous. It is the responsibility of the company purchasing the handler to properly train all handler operators in every aspect of the safety practices associated with the use of compressed air. WARNING! Never operate any Exatron system which requires compressed air without an approved air regulator and shutoff valve, such as that originally supplied with your system. WARNING! Never unplug a pressurized air hose while the air regulator is turned on.

Electrical Hazards
High Voltage Testing Applications: It is the policy of Exatron to determine the precise application for every handler we make prior to shipment. In some cases, the handler will be used to test devices at high voltages. If your handler will be used to test devices with voltages in excess of 80-volt DC or 80-volt AC, the handler should be equipped with safety covers. Notify

Lock-Out Procedures

Laser Hazards

Exatron immediately and place an order for safety covers, if this has not already been done. Added safety covers will be provided at additional cost to the user. If Exatron is notified of high voltage requirements as described above on the written purchase order at the time of order placement, we will equip your handler with safety covers having electrical interlock switches. These switches are intended to be utilized by the operator by connecting them to the customer-supplied tester. When the interlock switch is open, the tester will be shut down with no possibility of high voltage at the handler's contacts. All safety hardware should be verified for proper operation by the customer's own in-house safety officer. In most cases, there are no high voltages used inside the Model 5000 handler electronics with the exception of those using a Hi-Pot tester or the Model 5080 Hot Chamber. High voltage from the facility's electrical line current is present in the Model 5000 power supply. Only qualified service technicians should do any repair work on the power supply. Make sure to use qualified service technicians when attempting to repair any portion of the handler that uses high electrical voltages.

Laser Hazards
If your handler is equipped with a laser, follow all the federal and state safety regulations for safely operating the laser. Follow the safety warnings in the laser manufacturers manual. WARNING! Only a qualified in-house laser safety officer (LSO) should service the laser, if the handler is equipped with a laser.

Lock-Out Procedures
Lock-out/tag-out procedures should be followed when servicing or repairing the handler. This prevents an operator from turning on the handler when it may be partially disassembled and thus prevents damage or injury. Before servicing or repairing your handler, turn off the air regulator and lock it in the OFF position as shown in Figure 1-2. Then, if you have to leave the handler in an inoperable or unsafe condition, no one can turn it on by mistake. NOTE: Locking devices such as padlocks are provided by you, the customer. WARNING! Turn off the air regulator and lock it in the OFF position before servicing.

Facilities Requirements
Environmental Requirements
The Model 5000 handler should be installed in a temperature-controlled, dust-free environment to preclude dust and dirt particles from contaminating its moving parts, especially those parts which come into contact with the devices being tested. The life of your handler is greatly enhanced by keeping it as clean as possible. See Chapter 6 for instructions. Airborne dust and moisture, if present, will naturally settle on all surfaces of your handler. If allowed to build up, dust can eventually block sensors, clog solenoids, fill up the filters of cooling fans and generally inhibit the smooth movement of devices through the handler. The best defense against this kind of contaminant is to dust the handler off with blasts of compressed air at least every 8 hours. There are no special ventilation requirements. As specified in the table shown below, Exatron handlers are designed to withstand the impact of any physical environment that they may be used in. Periodic maintenance as described in Chapter 6 will ensure that emergency "down time" is kept to a minimum. Handler/Hot Rail Temperature 40 to 115 F, 5 to 45 C Handler with Printer 40 to 105 F, 5 to 40 C 20% to 80%, noncondensing

Relative Humidity 20% to 85%, noncondensing

Electrical Requirements

Electrical Requirements
If the handler is to be used in an electrically noisy environment or near large electromechanical equipment, Exatron recommends the use of a reliable power conditioner to filter line noise, surges, and spikes which can cause the handler to operate improperly or become damaged. NOTE: 110V AC at 20 amps is preferred when available. All Model 5000 series handler chassis are directly connected through the power supply to earth ground. All guide rails, shuttles, tube holders, hot chamber trays and output trays are connected to earth ground. The handler's power supply ground is directly connected to earth ground. CAUTION: Connect the power cord to earth-grounded power outlets only. Handlers shipped within the United States are factory pre-wired for 110V AC, 60 Hz, unless otherwise specified. Handlers shipped off-shore have built-in electrical supply capability for 100-volt AC to 240-volt AC, 50-Hz to 60-Hz, except in the case of the Model 3010B Hot Rail. The Hot Rail thermocouple card contains either a 50-Hz crystal or 60-Hz crystal, which must be specified by the customer. Handlers shipped to the following destinations are pre-wired for the following voltages unless otherwise specified: Japan - 100 VAC, 50 Hz Continental Europe - 240 VAC, 50 Hz United Kingdom - 220 VAC, 50 Hz Hong Kong - 220 VAC, 50 Hz

Handlers with special features have specific requirements: Ambient handlers require 3 amps at 110-volt AC. Hot-rail handlers require 7 amps at 110-volt AC. Handlers with lasers require 5-10 amps at 110-volt AC. Handlers with hot chambers have the line frequency fixed at either 50 Hz or 60 Hz, as specified by the customer, but not at both frequencies. The power supply is "smart," sensing the voltage in the power line, and matching its power accordingly. Electricity supplied to the handler must be within the recommended operating range. If the line voltage drops too low, the handler may not function properly and may be seriously damaged. Verify that correct operating line voltage is present. If it is not, contact Exatron for assistance.

Model 5000 Manual

Chapter 1: Safety and Support

Service calls made to the customer facility to correct problems caused by improper electrical supply are not covered by the Exatron warranty.

Air/Vacuum Requirements
The Model 5000 system requires a supply of pressurized air at a minimum of 80 PSI/3 CFM (+/- 3 PSI), filtered for proper operation. The air supply must be clean (containing no particulate matter greater than 5 microns in size), oil-free, and dry (having a dew point of 36 degrees F to 38 degrees F) to operate correctly. Dirty, oily or wet air will cause the vacuum generator to malfunction and will make your system unreliable. If the handler is equipped with a taper, add 0.5 CFM of shop air to the CFM required for the handler itself. The external air source should be attached to the air regulator mounted on the handler base. Before turning on the air regulator and using the handler, make certain the compressed air line is attached to the air regulator fitting. Check to make sure the air regulator gauge on the external regulator measures the air pressure at 80 PSI, and adjust if necessary. To maintain these levels of pressurized air quality, replace the air filter (Exatron part #GPA-97075) in the air regulator of your handler after every 6000 hours or 12 months of operation, whichever comes first; or if your air regulator registers a pressure drop of 15 PSI. Moisture of any kind will travel through external and internal air lines. This moisture will coat these air lines and the insides of the handler's electrical solenoids, causing them to stick or to stop functioning altogether. The best defense against this kind of contaminant is to prevent it from occurring in the first place by maintaining the clean air supply described above. If the air lines are allowed to become discolored or the moisture traps become overfilled, damage to the system will occur. The only corrective action to take at that point is to replace all of the air lines and to completely clean all of the solenoids supplied by those air lines. Handler damage due to improper air supply is not covered by the Exatron warranty. A house/shop vacuum is not required. Changeover kit vacuum requirements are supplied by built-in venturi vacuum generators. The external air source should be attached to the air regulator mounted on the handler base. Before turning on the air regulator and using the handler, make certain the compressed air line is attached to the air regulator fitting. Check to make sure the air regulator gauge on the external regulator measures the air pressure at 80 PSI, and adjust if necessary.

Air Connections
Located on the lower right side of the main frame supporting the Model 5000 is an air regulator with a pressure gauge and a filter. Before using the Model 5000, make certain that a compressed air line of 80 PSI is attached to the fitting of this air regulator. The Model 5000 has one 1/4" diameter flexible plastic air line on the outside of the handler's changeover kit.To supply the changeover test site with air, plug this into one of two available compressed air outlets mounted on the right side of the main plate of the Model 5000.

Installation Overview

DUT (Device Under Test) Materials

Figure 1-3: Air Line Attached to Outlet

DUT (Device Under Test) Materials


Component packages vary as to the materials from which they're made. The composition and size of packages can cause wear on the parts of the handler with which they come into contact. Heavy, rough-surfaced DUTs will cause handler wear faster than lighter, smoother materials. The best defense against the effects of the DUT material on a handler is to ensure that the handler is properly adjusted for the package it is running. The height of the handler door over the DUT should be as close as possible. The test site contacts should close on the DUT with enough pressure to provide good electrical contact, but not press hard enough to force the DUT to the left or the right of the test site rail. If you have any questions regarding handler adjustment issues, please contact the Exatron Customer Service Department.

Installation Overview
Basic installation of your new Exatron handler will consist of the following major steps: Unpacking the handling equipment and assembling its peripheral parts Powering up the handler ("Power-Up Procedure" on page 3-31) and running Diagnostics sequences (Chapter 4)

Chapter 1: Safety and Support

Self diagnostic support: All Exatron products have substantial built-in self diagnostic software. These diagnostics are well documented in our manuals. Typically every sensor, switch, solenoid, valve, lamp, motor, vacuum can be individually turned on/off and tested quickly. This is a great help with troubleshooting problems. Combine this with remote Internet access and just about all problems can be found quickly and at low cost to everyone. Void warranty stickers: There are no "void warranty" stickers on Exatron products, but there are some on some of our OEM add-ons. We do require that a properly trained service technician perform any service work on Exatron products. Laser self service: Exatron does NOT recommend customer self service for any of our laser products. There are substantial safety issues with lasers and they must be serviced by the OEM laser vendor. In some cases, Exatron can provide basic service work. Laser service work must be quoted on a specific as-needed basis. Any damage, of any kind, to the laser caused by improper service or operator abuse voids any remaining warranty. Factory customer operator and service training: Exatron will train the customers operators and/or service personnel if: The training takes place at Exatron The customer pays all of their own travel / lodging costs Exatron is given at least 30 day notice Exatron will then train on the next best thing we have in-house at that time (best effort) Exatron uses only standard Exatron manuals for training aids Any spare manuals must be purchased by the customer In most cases, we are willing to provide up to two days of training for up to 3 people at no cost during the buy-off of the equipment. Additional factory customer operator service training can be purchased for $600 per day for one person, $200 per additional person all trained at the same time. Typically we would limit our class sizes to 4 people maximum. The number of days required to train depends on the Exatron product(s) and the skill level of the people being trained. On-site training classes: On occasion, Exatron provides our customers with on-site training classes. This can be as simple as a few hours reviewing our standard documentation. Or a more formal class may be required. Exatron will quote on-site training classes based on the customers needs. Spare parts: Most spare parts orders are shipped the same day, if the order is placed before 1pm PST. We do all we can to maintain a good stock of commonly used spare parts. But there will be times were Exatron cannot supply a spare part overnight. The customer must maintain their own stock of spare parts based on their needs. All shipping costs will be charged to the customers account. Please specify shipping method at time of order. Exatron will hold all spare part orders if the customer has any overdue open invoices. Spare test contactors: It is expected that the customer will maintain at least a 60 day inventory of spare test contactors. In many cases, test contactors are custom designed. In many cases, we ship the test contactors as a lot. We do not maintain a stock of spares in these cases. Typical lead time is 3 to 4 weeks; longer is possible for unforeseen reasons. Spare part kits: Exatron offers a well stocked spare parts kit. Call for a quotation. Spare part long-term support: Exatron makes every effort to supply spare parts for the life of the equipment. We manufacture our own machine parts and our ability to find old drawings, for old parts, is excellent. As the handler ages, many of the non-Exatron made parts will no longer be available. In some cases, we may substitute used parts that still have some life in them. If all else fails, we can design in new parts or upgrade around the problem part; this can add substantial extra cost, but will also extend the working life of the handler.

RoHS Lead Free Compliance: Exatron has been building equipment since 1974. We no longer use lead solder in any of our newly designed products. Some of our "newly built" older designs might in fact use older in-stock parts that are not RoHS compliant. We do have older stocks of spare parts that were originally made with lead solder. Some of these older parts will be used in newly built Exatron products that were originally designed years ago. This applies mostly to older PCBs, both bare boards and assemblies. This may also apply to older test contacts & cable assemblies. In the event the customer needs to have all spare parts, including older in-stock parts, the customer's original order must clearly indicate that RoHS compliance is required. Exatron reserves the right to re-quote as needed. There will be substantial price increases. With many of our older spare parts, we will need to generate new documentation, artworks, and buy a minimum number of parts to remanufacture just one spare part that is now RoHS complaint. All of these costs and a much longer lead time, will be passed on to the customer within the required re-quote. Product upgrades: As the product ages, there will be a time when Exatron will no longer be able to upgrade the product with new options that are constantly being added to our product line. We will do all we can to support the product to work as well as it did when it originally shipped. Spare computer parts: It is simply a fact that as computers get cheaper, they also become less reliable. Exatron does all we can to buy the highest quality and generic computer parts as possible. This is why we build our own PCs. Please note that computer parts typically DO NOT have long term support. In most cases, but not all, we can swap out one PC vendor with another. It is highly recommended that the customer buy a spare PC at time of order (included in some spare parts kits). We maintain a small stock of older computers, subject to prior sale. Recover disks: All Exatron PC based handlers are shipped with software recovery disks. We will store a copy as well at Exatron. This disk(s) will allow the customer to fully recover from a catastrophic computer failure. The disk will recover all of the installed software that was on the handlers hard disk at time of shipment. This disk will not always fully recover if the computer itself has to be changed out to a different type or upgraded version of MS Windows. It is up to the customer to maintain backup files for all job files and Exatron updates after the equipment is shipped from Exatron. Please do not make your only backup files on the Exatron computer. Software updates: Some customers ask for improvements that we add to all future versions. Sometimes we even find "bugs" and fix them. We are always making improvements. Exatron provides these generic software updates on request only. We strongly believe in the idea that "if it isnt broken, dont fix it" when it comes to software adding a change to fix one problem can often lead to more and worse other problems, so we specifically do not make software fixes unless really necessary. Should the customer request be considered by Exatron to be an enhancement, we reserve the right to quote as needed. Spare hard drive: Exatron highly recommends adding a spare hard drive to our computers. This can be ordered at time of order. Adding a disk drive after shipment will require an on-site service call and is not covered by our standard warranty. 8-to 5-phone support: Exatron offers toll free (800-EXA-TRON) phone support, 8am to 5pm Pacific Time, Monday Friday, at no extra cost for the life of the equipment. Most questions are answered on the spot. More complicated issues will take longer. At some point Exatron may require the customer to purchase an on-site service call or return the equipment to Exatron for repair. Internet support: Exatron strives to maintain low capital acquisition costs and low service costs for our customers. A key part of this strategy is the use of the Internet to provide software updates and perform remote service on our systems. Software support in the field can be extremely expensive to the end user, so high-speed connections are an excellent money-saving tool. We strongly encourage our customers to put our systems on their networks and give us access to the system over their networks.

Internet access software is included with every Exatron PC-based handler. In most cases, handlers can be connected to Exatron over any Internet port as long as the customer initiates the connection. There will be substantially higher service and engineering costs to our customers who cannot provide Internet access to our products. OEM equipment: Many Exatron products are systems built with additional third party OEM products. These products include laser markers, chillers, smoke extraction, vision/camera systems, bowl feeders, label printers, and other big ticket non-Exatron products. In every case, Exatron will require the OEM to pass its standard warranty through to the end user. In every case, Exatron will do all we can to correct any system problems. The specific service policy for the non-Exatron product will be determined at time of order. Most of our OEM products do not include on-site support or return shipping costs without a specific additional order at time of the original system order. In the event an OEM product is supplied by the customer, Exatron will only guarantee the initial integration. This integration must be bought off at Exatron prior to shipment. Exatron will not offer any additional warranty from that point in time. Exatron service work on OEM equipment: Service work is typically limited to repair of Exatron products only. We will make every effort to service our OEM partners equipment to the best of our ability. Should the OEM product require service beyond our limited ability, any and all costs required to bring the OEM equipment back to working order will be passed on to the customer. ONGOING CAMERA AND LASER APPLICATION SUPPORT: Exatron systems that require machine vision (cameras) and/or laser markers include the initial application development only. Depending on how the system is used, ongoing application support may be required. We encourage customers to develop sufficient in-house familiarity with the vision and laser systems to accomplish this themselves. However, in the event that additional application support is needed, Exatron considers this not to be covered by warranty. Applications support is available from Exatron at a price to be determined on a case-by-case basis. Exatron customers are also encouraged to seek applications support directly from the camera and/or laser vendor(s). Third-party service: Exatron has working relationships with qualified third-party service providers in Asia and Europe. Please see our web site for contact information. The customer is free to directly contact any of these service providers. Each has their own pricing structures. Returned to the factory repair turn-around times: Exatrons in-house repairs are billed at $75 per hour, 1 hour minimum. All products sent in to Exatron for repair must have an RMA number. If there is no RMA number, turn-around times can be significantly longer. Work performed 8am-5pm Pacific Time normal business days only Standard service turn-around time (with RMA#) ...typically the next day, best effort Rebuilds & engineering turn-around times...to be determined as needed 1 business day response subject to availability at the time (see below) Field upgrades and service call turn-around times: On-site turn-around time: We will make our best effort to provide on-site service as quickly as possible. Our standard warranty does not cover travel expenses. We will waive our technicians time and spare part costs during the warranty period. This does NOT apply to adding newly purchased upgrades.

End-of-Life Handler Disposal

Customer Service Support Guide

End-of-Life Handler Disposal


Exatron has no time limit on Exatron product support. We will make every effort to repair any of our products, no matter how old it is. Our never-ending support greatly extends the life of many of our products. Exatron offers trade-in value on any of our products as part of a new Exatron equipment purchase. Exact terms are subject to quote at that time. This applies to any used Exatron product as a trade-in on any new Exatron product. We will service our products even when the product is not purchased directly from Exatron. This makes the resale value of Exatron products high as compared to many of our competitors. The customer can sell the product to a third party, used equipment vendor, or online as, for example, on eBay. Exatron will always offer spare parts, service contacts, and rebuilds of any of our products. Most of the materials used in the construction of our products can be recycled. When it comes time to finally retire an Exatron product, the customer can ship the product back to Exatron, at the customers expense, and we will quote the cost to dismantle and recycle the handler. In many cases, there is no charge for this service other than any third-party disposal fees as required. Whenever possible, reusable components will be offered as a donation to local schools. Please note that in many cases, Exatron builds systems using major third-party pieces of equipment. These include lasers, printers, camera inspection, chillers, fume extractors, and other large OEM (original equipment manufacturer) subsystems. Exatron will attempt to provide the same support as best we can for these subsystems. Exact details cannot be determined until the day comes that end-of-life service is required. The customer is free to contact the OEM directly for its end-of life service policy and then deal directly with that OEM.

Significance of This Manuals Version Number


The version number on the cover page of this manual indicates three things about the revision version. The first number is for complete overhauls and brand new manuals. The second number is for small section changes and additions. The third number is for small typo changes. For example, version 2.0.1 would refer to a completely redone manual, which had since had a few typographical changes made. The difference between 2.0 and 2.0.1 would be negligible. However, the differences between version 1.0 and 2.0 would be substantial.

This chapter will familiarize you with the various parts of the system hardware, what they do, and how they work. Exatron recommends that you read this part of the manual in the presence of the system to facilitate reference to the actual system. The parts of the system are identified as shown in this chapter.

Overview of Model 5000


The Model 5000 handler is a tube-to-tube, gravity-feed, eight-sort handler designed for a wide variety of package typesboth surface-mount and through-hole technologiesusing SnapOn Changeover Kits to convert from one device size to another. It integrates customer-specified programming and/or test sites. Blank/untested devices are loaded in tubes at the top of the handler, then sent (indexed) one at a time (or up to 4 at a time for custom options) to a test contact mechanism. Among the standard choices, you can select special SMD (Surface Mount Device) test sites which plunge the Device Under Test (DUT) up to 1.5 inches past the back of the handler to a load board. Programming and testing take place here, using any of several types of programmers and testers. The devices are sorted by "pass" or "fail" categories after each test. After testing, failed devices are sorted into reject tubes (usually bin 5). Devices that pass the test stage are sorted to the output tubes or to a taper. The Model 5000 handler operation is constantly monitored by its standard-bus CPU. Once a device enters the handler, it is tracked by sensors as it passes through every step until it is positively placed in the correct output tube. If a device jam should occur, an appropriate error message will be displayed on the handler controller's control panel. Most jams can be cleared by pressing the <RUN> or <Clear> keys on the front panel.

Model 5000 Manual

Chapter 2: System Description

The handler can be operated in either of two modes: Run or Manual. Manual mode allows for handler diagnostics sequences to be run, handler setup changes to be entered, and mechanical adjustments to be made at the operator's convenience before, during, and after automatic handler operation. Run mode continuously cycles devices through the handler. The handler stops when empty but restarts automatically when more devices are loaded. Each output tube may be filled to any preset amount, with individual counters keeping track of quantities in each output. When an output tube is filled, the handler automatically begins to fill any other unfilled tube assigned to the sort signal received from the tester. When all output tubes are filled, the handler stops and a message is displayed, such as: "ALL OUTPUTS FULL." The tube counter is automatically reset by removing the full tube and re-inserting an empty tube. The handler will not cycle devices to outputs that are full or have no tubes. Additionally, a running count is maintained for all outputs, up to a total of 999,999 devices. Sorting is accomplished by use of a stepper motor and shuttle. Sensors keep track of the shuttle's position at all times. In the event of a sorting problem, a message is displayed on the handler's control panel, and the device is not binned until the problem is corrected. The Model 5000 handler, like all Exatron handlers, is guaranteed to properly bin every device even during "power down" conditions. The Model 5000 handler can have numerous options: It can use a tester, a programmer, and/or a laser marker, integrating customerspecified programming and/or test sites. It can use 8 input tubes or a bowl feeder. It can use 8 output tubes with 8 sort categories, or it can use 5 output tubes plus a tape-and-reel system. Both can be used together, or the output tubes can be used without the taper. It can be designed for a wide variety of package typesboth surface-mount and through-hole technologiesusing Snap-On Changeover Kits to convert from one device size to another.

Key Movements and Positions

Figure 2-3: Flow of Movement

Two or three motors drive the movement of devices. One motor drives the horizontal movement of the octoloader; the second motor drives the horizontal movement of the shuttle. If the handler is equipped with a pickup head that moves each device through the test site, a third motor controls the pickup head. In Figure 2-3, the red arrows show the movement driven by the motors; the blue arrows show the gravity-induced movement of the devices. If the handler is equipped with a third motor driving a pickup head, the pickup head moves the device through the test area. Figure 2-4 shows all the positions where a device might rest or be deposited during its course through the Model 5000 handlerand Model 1050 taper, if so equipped. If there is no taper, the handler is equipped with 8 output tubes instead of 5. Everything below the dotted red line belongs to the 1050 taper and is discussed in the Model 1050 User Manual.

Key Positions for Handler with Quad Test Site

Key Positions for Handler with Quad Test Site


In addition to the positions shown in the previous sections, a handler with a quad tester (for simultaneous movement and testing of four devices) has a few extra positions. Devices from the octoloader are held up from the gravity-feed track by the index pin, which is extended into the main track by default. The index pin is on a see-saw with the stack pin, so that when the index pin is retracted to allow a set of four devices into the main track, the stack pin is extended to hold them up from entering the quad test site. When the index pin is again extended, the stack pin retracts and drops the four devices into the test site, where they are held by the test site stop pin.

Figure 2-5: Key Positions for Handler with Quad Test Site

Model 5000 Manual

Chapter 2: System Description

The test site clamps close on each side, and the testing occurs. After the test results are sent to the handler, the test site stop pin retracts and the four devices are dropped to the stage or holding site, where they are stopped by the stage stop pin. When the shuttle is in position to receive them, the stage stop pin retracts and the devices are dropped into the shuttle, where they are then distributed to their respective sort outputs.

Model 5000 Optional Features


Many options are available for the Model 5000 handler, most of which may be added at the customer site. Available options are described in detail at the time of equipment price quote and include: One-track hot rail Upgrade to automatic print-and-apply labeler High frequency particle-interconnect contact sets Extruded aluminum output tubes Output tube guard "Live bug" or "dead bug" operation (available in most cases) Bowl-feed input Output tape and reel Opto-isolation interface (noise protection for handler if tester is not already equipped with this safety feature) Status light pole Extended warranties Service contracts Other options are available if requested.

Taper Option
If the handler is equipped with a taper, it can have only 5 output tubes instead of 8. Rather, it is equipped with a taper input track below the shuttle and to the right of the 5 output tubes, as shown in Figure 2-4. The taper input track has pins that correspond to the ones on the handlers input track. Both sets of pins control the movement of devices. The taper input track is discussed in more detail in the Model 1050 User Manual. NOTE: You cannot use both the output tubes and the tape-and-reel assembly at the same time. You must use either one or the other for any run.

Mechanical Features
Tilt Mechanism
All gravity-feed handlers include an adjustable tilt mechanism. The tilt angle is critical for ceramic DIPs and LCCs since too much drop angle may cause chipping of the packages. Making the slide angle more horizontal than vertical increases drag and slows the devices movement, thus minimizing chipping from impact.

2-9

Model 5000 Manual

Chapter 2: System Description

The handler cycle timing is sensor-controlled, so the cycle speed will be automatically slowed to match that of the devices. The maximum slide angle for PLCC devices is 45 degrees from vertical. NOTE: Ceramic device damage may be minimized by use of bumpers which attach directly to each device. Some types of these bumpers will run through a standard Exatron handler. In some cases, custom rails may be required.

Figure 2-6: Tilt MechanismLeft Side (Left); Right Side (Right)

The tilt mechanism in Figure 2-6 can be tilted to three angles (35-, 45-, and 55-degree angle), by unbolting the top bolt only on each side and moving it to one of the three holes. The angle shown in Figure 2-6 is 45 degrees.

Motors and Drive Chains


The motors driving the octoloader and shuttle are DC stepper motors. Stepper motors have no homing routine. However, Exatron has added sensors that tell the software when the component is at its "home" position according to the Exatron software (Figure 2-9). Each motor drives movement by means of a chain, whose tension can be adjusted by loosening and moving the red tensioner slightly.

The standard Model 5000 comes equipped with this octoloader which is a moving metal plate holding up to eight tubes of devices, controlled by the handler's CPU by means of a stepper motor. The plate automatically moves both left and right, positioning each tube of devices over the handler input track. When the input track is emptied, the octoloader automatically searches for tubes with devices. The octoloader has a sensor mounted at its junction with the input track. The octoloader can "see" a device jam and stop its own movement to prevent breaking the jammed device. The octoloader also has an automatic "wiggle" jam-clearing operation which it will implement immediately in an effort to remove the jam without operator assistance. Model 5000 octoloaders use a snap-on plate which is specifically fitted with tube holders for a given device application. It can be snapped on and unsnapped to clear device jams. When the octoloader is at its home position, it is pressing the sensor on the red octoloader stop.

Figure 2-12: Octoloader Front with Two Tubes Attached

Each of the 8 octoloader chutes has a gate that restrains the devices. As the octoloader moves each tube over the track, the roller depresses the gate for that chute, thus opening it and allowing one device to fall through. Each tube is emptied of devices before the octoloader moves the next tube over the track.

Index and Stack Pins


During a production run, the stack pin is by default extended, restraining the line of devices waiting to fall to the test site. When the handler is ready to move another device, the index pin is extended between the lowest device in line and the device just above it. Then the stack pin is retracted, allowing the lowest device to fall. On a custom handler with quad tester, the index and stack pins are simultaneously controlled by the same solenoid. In the default position, the index pin is retracted but the stack pin is extended into the track (Figure 2-37, left). When the solenoid is activated, this is reversed: the index pin is extended into the track but the stack pin is retracted (Figure 2-37, right).

On other models, the stack pin and cover foot (Figure 2-38) are activated simultaneously to prevent the device from jumping the stop block. Thus, when the stack pin retracts to release a device, the cover foot is extended to hold the device at the pickup site momentarily until any bouncing action stops.

Test Site Stop Pin


By default the test site stop pin is extended to stop the device at the test site. At the test site, the sensor notes the presence of the device and causes the test contacts to close so testing can occur. After the tester sends a sort result, the test contacts are opened and the test site stop pin is retracted, allowing the device to fall to the shuttle, which takes it to the appropriate ouput tube. The test site stop pin is again extended just before the stack pin is retracted, allowing another device into the test site.

Output Displays
The most common type of output display is LED on/off only. Alternatively, a digital display is available by request, showing at each output a "P" for Pass, an "F" for Fail, or a digit representing a sort category.

Figure 2-48: Output DisplaysLED On/Off (Left), Digits (Right)

LED Display
The output tube cover is equipped with LEDs that give several indicators. In Run mode, the LED for the next or current output tube in use is lit. (In Figure 2-48, output tube 4 is being filled.) This enables you to avoid swapping out a full tube when the handler is trying to use it. In Run mode, LEDs flash for any outputs that have full tubes or no tubes. In Diagnostics mode, the sensor check results are reflected in the LEDs.

Digital Display
An unblinking display on the tube cover shows which bins are receiving which sorts. With this, you can control how the devices get sorted. The factory default is as follows. The first 4 bins are for passed devices routed to tubes. Bin 5 is always fail because its the most direct from the exit track and easiest to dump to. Bins 6 and 8 are unused on a handler with this hardware configuration.

Loading Tubes into the Octoloader


Exatron's eight-tube capacity automatic tube loading mechanism, called the octoloader, will automatically load any device supplied in tubes into your Exatron system. The octoloader assembly snaps onto the system for easy conversion from one device size/type to another.

Model 5000 Manual

Chapter 3: Handler Setup and RAM Listing

Figure 3-39: Octoloader

The octoloader is a moving plate that holds tubes of devices and is controlled by a stepper motor. During production, the plate automatically moves from side to side, positioning each tube above the input track. When the input track becomes empty, the octoloader automatically searches for tubes with devices. A sensor mounted at the junction of the input track allows the octoloader to "see" a device jam, if one occurs. The octoloader then stops moving to prevent damage to the jammed device. In addition, the octoloader has an automatic "wiggle" cycle that will attempt to clear the jam automatically, without operator assistance. (This feature can be turned off at the control panel if necessary.) NOTE: Tubes are installed upside down into the octoloader. To install full tubes into the octoloader: 1. If your model comes with blue anodized tube gates, turn them so that they are in the open or vertical position. 2. Remove the stopper from the top of a full tube of devices. Keeping the open end higher than the closed end, hold the lower half of the tube in one hand and guide the top of the tube to the octoloader with the other hand. 3. Keeping the open end higher than the closed end, press the open end of the tube firmly against the octoloader main plate at the bottom end of the track.

Setting Pickup Head Distances


For each of the next 3 settings, follow the directions in this section. The handler displays "TO SITE = 04520." This is the number of steps the pickup motor will move to get the pickup head from its home position to a position directly over the test site. The handler displays "TO SITE = #####." This is the number of motor steps needed to get the pickup head from its home position at the top of its path to a position directly over the test site. The handler displays "TO EXIT = #####." This is the number of motor steps needed to get the pickup head from its home position at the top of its path to the exit to the shuttle. The handler displays "PICK UP = #####." This is the number of motor steps needed to get the pickup head from its home position at the top of its path to the device pickup site. Use the keypad to make your selection. The handler accepts changes to each digit from lowest to highest, in order; that is, Ones, Tens, Hundreds, Thousands, etc. Thus, the first number key you press changes the ones value; the second number key you press changes the tens value, and so forth.

Resetting Totals
The handler keeps a running count of total devices sent to each output bin. These counts are preserved in the battery-backed-up RAM, even when the handler is turned off. Therefore, you have to reset the counts to zero at the control panel. To keep an accurate count of devices processed, you may want to reset the totals at the beginning of each day or of each production run. To reset the totals: 1. Press the <SET UP> key. > The message "CHANGE RAM? NO" is displayed. 2. Press the <ENTER> key. > The message "RESET TOTALS NO" is displayed. 3. Press the <SET UP> key. > The message "RESET TOTALS YES" is displayed. 4. Press the <ENTER> key. > The message "TOTALS SET TO 0" is displayed briefly, then the handler goes back to the routine it was in before you pressed <SET UP>. > If any output tubes remain in place, the reminder to "EMPTY ALL TUBES" is displayed, and all LEDs having a tube attached are flashing.

Homing the Octoloader

Beginning a Production Run


Before you begin a production run, make sure the octoloader is at the Exatron-designated home position.

Homing the Octoloader


There is no single command that homes the octoloader. To home the octoloader: 1. Press the <MANUAL> key to enter Manual mode. 2. Press <0> to turn off all motors. The octoloader will now move freely. 3. Slide the octoloader all the way to the left. 4. Press <ENTER>. The message ALIGN MOTORS ? is displayed. 5. Press <ENTER> again to turn the motors back on.

To begin a production run: 1. Load devices into any or all of the octoloader's 8 input slots. 2. Replace all output tubes that may have any devices in them with empty tubes. CAUTION: Make sure all output tubes are empty at the beginning of a run. If you begin a run with devices in an output tube, the count will be off, and the handler may try to overfill the tube, jamming devices. 3. Press the <ENTER> key on the handler. The handler should automatically flush out any devices that may be in the test site, mark site, or shuttle. The handler will then look for devices in the handler's input track. If none is found, the octoloader will turn on and will move 16 times looking for devices. If this does not happen, check for jams and proper handler setup. > If "EMPTY/LOAD PARTS" is displayed by the handler, load more devices into the octoloader and press the handler's <ENTER> key. The handler runs the rest of the selected job. The LED lights up for the current or next output tube it intends to use. As each device is processed, messages are displayed on your control panel. Depending on the options your handler is equipped with, these messages may relate to the laser or tester. Alternatively, the messages may show the current output tube, the sort category, and/or the

count in the current tube. For example, the message "BIN 3 S1 C0014" indicates that the shuttle has placed a device in output tube 3, having received a sort 1 command, and there are now 14 devices in output tube 1. The counter is for the current output tube full count only. Symbol B S C Meaning Bin, or output tube Sort: 1-8, pass or fail Count of devices in current output tube Examples B1, B8 S1, S8 C0001, C0027

Suppose the first device is a sort 1, passed to bin 1. The display at first reads "BIN 1 S1 C0001". The next device is a sort 2, failed to bin 5. The display now reads "BIN 5 S2 C0001" because this is the first device sent to output tube 5. The third device is again a sort 1, passed to bin 1. The display for it reads "BIN 1 S1 C0002" because this is only the second device sent to output tube 1.

Displaying Totals
Before, during, or after a run, you can display totals of devices sent to each output bin. To display the totals: 1. Press the <TOTALS> key. > If the handler is doing a run, it pauses. The message "DISPLAY TOTALS" is displayed. 2. Press each numeric key to view the totals output to the corresponding bin or tube. > For example, to view the count for tube 3, press <3>. A count something like "T03 0047 000130" may be displayed. This means that for tube 3, 47 devices have been sent to the current tube. A total of 130 devices have been sent to that output bin 3 since the last time the totals were reset; this may include a number of tubes that were replaced in bin 3. 3. Press <ENTER> to quit viewing totals and resume previous action.

Changing RAM
The Model 5000 system allows you to change the RAM of each handler CPU. You can do this in one of three ways: You can change individual address values, or settings. You can reload all the default settings from the EPROM. This will erase any changes that have been made to individual addresses.

Updating Your EPROM


Write down all changes you make in your RAM address listing. Permanent selections should be programmed into the EPROM. You can then fax your updated RAM listing to Exatron, and we will program a new EPROM for you, free. The benefit of having your customized changes in the EPROM is that when it is necessary to blast the RAM back to the factory default, you will not lose your changes.

Setting Sorts in RAM Addresses C0 to C7


To set each sort, type the instructions in hexadecimal. We use hex as an easy way of representing binary. It allows us to type an instruction of 2 digits rather than an instruction of 8 digits. The handler decodes the hex instructions into a binary map. The two groups of binary numbers in the binary column in the following table are viewed from the handlers view, or as if you were standing behind the handler, with your chin over the top of the octoloader, looking down at the output tubes. From this standpoint, the numbers represent the following outputs. In binary notation, 1 = TRUE and 0 = FALSE. So only the columns, or outputs, with 1s receive devices.

ExamplePassed Devices to Four Tubes


Lets suppose that you want passed devices categorized as sort 1 to be routed to bins 1 through 4. You would type the instruction of 0F for sort 1, at RAM address C0. The binary code into which the handler would translate this is shown in the bottom row, following. Notice that each bin designated as yes, route here, has a 1 for TRUE.
Bin 8 0 Bin 7 0 Bin 6 0 Bin 5 0 Bin 4 1 Bin 3 1 Bin 2 1 Bin 1 1

ExamplePassed Devices to Taper


Lets next suppose that you want devices categorized as sort 1 to be routed only to the taper, using bin 7. You would type the instruction of 40 for sort 1, at RAM address C0. The binary code into which the handler would translate this is shown in the bottom row, following. Notice that only bin 7, designated as yes, route here, has a 1 for TRUE.
Bin 8 0 Bin 7 1 Bin 6 0 Bin 5 0 Bin 4 0 Bin 3 0 Bin 2 0 Bin 1 0

Chapter 4: Diagnostics and Troubleshooting


Chapter Overview
This chapter describes the operation of the handler's extensive built-in diagnostics. These diagnostics allow every sensor, solenoid, switch, motor, and I/O Port in the handler to be individually tested. Use these checks to troubleshoot any problem the handler may have. This chapter discusses the following main topics: Topic Accessing DIAGNOSTICS Mode Diagnostics Quick Reference SENSOR CHECK: Test Site Sensors 0-7 SENSOR CHECK: Test Site Sensors 8-F for Laser SENSOR CHECK: Test Site Sensors 8-F for Quad Tester SENSOR CHECK: Shuttle Position Sensors 1-8 SENSOR CHECK: Tube Full Sensors 1-8 SENSOR CHECK: Tube Present Sensors 1-8 OUTPUT CHECK: Solenoid Check OUTPUT CHECK: Solenoid Toggle Check OUTPUT CHECK: Light Pole Check OUTPUT CHECK: CPU Port Check INTERFACE CHECK: RS-232 Port Check INTERFACE CHECK: RS-232 Port #2 Check for Pickup Heads INTERFACE CHECK: Handler Port Output Check INTERFACE CHECK: Handler Port Input Check ALL MOTOR CHECK: Shuttle Motor Check ALL MOTOR CHECK: Pickup Head Motor Check ALL MOTOR CHECK: Octoloader Motor Check OCTO/INDEX CHECK: Shuttle Solenoid Check OCTO/INDEX CHECK: Input Sensor Check LASER CHECK: Laser Firing Check LASER CHECK: Laser Input Check LASER CHECK: Laser Output Check SERVO TEACH MODE Cycling the Handler in Stop Mode Cycling the Handler in Loop Mode Page 4-2 4-6 4-12 4-13 4-14 4-15 4-18 4-20 4-22 4-24 4-25 4-26 4-27 4-28 4-31 4-32 4-33 4-34 4-36 4-37 4-38 4-40 4-41 4-42 4-42 4-43 4-44

Accessing DIAGNOSTICS Mode


Although no tools are required, an Exatron LED checker, part #3000-052, (small blue box, Figure 4-1) will be helpful in troubleshooting broken sensor/LED pairs and for testing the handler control port.

Figure 4-1: Eight-Bit LED Checker #3000-521

To access Diagnostics mode, press the <DIAGNOSTICS> key on the handler's control panel. If the password security is turned on, the display reads "PASSWORD ABC ?" Enter a 3-digit password using the numeric keys. The factory-set password is 123, or <1> <2> <3>. The display reads: "DIAGNOSTICS." You can access Diagnostics mode whenever the handler powers up, is in Run mode, or is in Manual mode.

Accessing DIAGNOSTICS Mode

You can also access Diagnostics Mode during most device jam-clearing cycles, when the output tube cover LEDs are flashing. If using Diagnostics during a jam, the handler will exit its automatic jam clearing cycle and then return to its previous place in the program, upon exiting Diagnostics. In most cases, if the jam is cleared during Diagnostics, the handler will also automatically restart after returning from Diagnostics. Note that in Figure 4-3 and Figure 4-4 the top line of each action box is the key you press, and the second line is the resulting display on the control panel.

#### OLDNEW ####


The handler is using the PROGRAM RS-232 interface. The handler has asked the programmer for a sum check which is displayed following the word NEW, and compared it to the sum check stored in the handler's RAM which is displayed in front of the word OLD. These two sum checks do not match. A sum check is the total of the parameter values for all the RAM addresses displayed in hex, for example: 2EFG. If this is the start of a new job, it is normal for the two sum checks to not match. In this case, if you are sure the new sum check (displayed following the word NEW) is correct, press the <ENTER> key. If the handler is in the middle of a job, and this message appears, check your programmer very thoroughly. Also check whether the handler is making good electrical contact with the programmer. If the above suggestions do not apply, the programmer's RAM may be corrupted. Stop the job. Reload all information and begin again.

ALL MOTORS OFF


You have pressed the <0> key. The power to all motors is now OFF. You can realign or move any of the motors manually. Press any handler controller key to continue.

ALL OUTPUTS FULL


The handler is waiting to sort a device but all output tubes are full. Insert an empty tube into any of the handler outputs which have flashing output cover LEDs.

BAD RESPONSE
The handler is in the EXATRON RS-232 INTERFACE mode. Proper communications between the tester and the handler must be established at the start of every test cycle. At this point, the handler is waiting for an "R" Ready, (or an asterisk, "*" for Remote Flush Command) from the tester. However, the tester has sent some response other than an "R" or an "*" and the handler is advising the operator that such response is not correct. See "EXATRON RS-232 Interface" on page 9-9 for details.

BAD TEST RESULT


The handler is in the Exatron RS-232 INTERFACE mode. If the handler receives an incorrect bin sort, the message BAD TEST RESULT is displayed. If so equipped, the handler flashes the HEX equivalent of the result received on the handler's output door LEDs. You can press the <ENTER> key to reissue a Start Test command and the handler will try a second test. You can press the <CLEAR> key to abort the test and restart operation, or send the handler an ASCII "*" or "2A" in HEX. This will automatically flush the DUT and begin a new test cycle. See "EXATRON RS-232 Interface" on page 9-9 for details.

BIN # S# C####
The shuttle is returning after properly placing a device in the output tube whose number is represented above by the pound sign (BIN #). The handler had received a sort command represented above by the pound sign (S#) from the tester/PC. The current device count in that output tube is represented above by four pound signs (C####).

Actual numbers will be displayed in place of the pound signs on your control panel. For example, the message BIN 3 S1 C0014 indicates that the shuttle is returning after properly placing a device in output tube 3, having received a sort 1 command, and there are now 14 devices in output tube 1. The counter is for the current output tube full count only. Symbol B S C Meaning Bin, or output tube Sort: 1-8, pass or fail Count of devices in current output tube Examples B1, B8 S1, S8 C0001, C0027

The handler also keeps a TOTAL count. To obtain TOTAL counts, press the <MANUAL> key, then press the <TOTALS> key for total counts from output bin keys <1> through <8>. The tube full count rolls over at 9999 devices for output taping machine options.

BIN 5 S0 FLUSH
The handler is flushing one or more devices from the machine. This message is for the PC. It tells the PC not to count the device(s) being flushed.

CHANGE RAM ? NO
Exits routine without making any changes to the handler's RAM setup parameters. <ENTER> Exits with no changes. <SET UP> Toggles back to CHANGE RAM ? YES.

CHANGE RAM ? YES


Allows the operator to override the handler's setup parameters. <ENTER> Allows changes to the RAM. See "Changing RAM" on page 3-58 for instructions. <SET UP> Toggles back to CHANGE RAM ? NO.

CHECK BEAM TUBE?


For laser models: The laser beam tube is not fitted correctly over the laser mark site. Adjust it correctly before proceeding.

CHECK CONTACTS?
This message indicates that the Z plunger has gotten out of step and has moved too far up in the Z motor assembly. At this point, the display may read Z MOTOR CRASH ? only, or it may first read Z MOTOR CRASH ? and then blink CHECK CONTACTS?

Chapter Overview

CHECK SUM ERROR

If the message CHECK CONTACTS? appears, the handler may have inadvertently dropped the device under test onto the contacts. Immediately check the handler contacts and remove any dropped device. If the message Z MOTOR CRASH ? only is displayed, the device has been picked up but the Z plunger and the device are now too high up. You can press the <CLEAR> key to flush all devices from the handler and start over.

CHECK SUM ERROR


The PC has sent new RAM data to the handler. The handler has calculated the check sum for the file and it does not match the check sum sent by the PC. Press the <ENTER> key to skip past this error. From the PC, stop the job and start over again.

CHECKING LASER ?
For laser models: You are in Diagnostics mode under LASER CHECK. The laser is being initialized. The next message to be displayed is - PILOT / . FULL, which gives you the choice of firing the laser in either pilot or full mode.

CHK OUTPUT DOOR


The output tube cover with LEDs is raised. Close it over the shuttle before operation can resume.

CHK SMOKE TUBE


For laser models: The handler is trying to mark a device, but the smoke tube is not installed, or not fully seated in the alignment block. Install the smoke tube and make sure it is fully seated. Press the <CLEAR> key to flush the handler and abort the laser mark process. Use Diagnostics/Sensor 8-F Check to verify that the smoke tube sensor is working correctly. See "SENSOR CHECK: Test Site Sensors 8-F for Laser" on page 4-13.

CHK VAC ADJ


The handler has tried to pick up a device and has failed to detect that the device was already suctioned up by the plunger's vacuum. To resolve this condition: 1. Press the <PAUSE> key: HANDLER PAUSED. Wiggle the plunger manually to slightly shift the device. Watch the red LED on the vacuum generator. When the LED lights up, stop wiggling the plunger. Press any key on the handler's controller. The handler will automatically resume operation if the device is now detected. 2. Verify that the vacuum line is installed from the vacuum generator to the plunger. Verify that the plunger fitting is not leaking. 3. Verify that the plunger is mechanically adjusted correctly.

Air Regulator Maintenance

Checking Incoming Air from the House Supply

Air Regulator Maintenance


Most Exatron handlers use compressed air, which also requires an air regulator. A high quality air regulator with coalescing air filter and shutoff valve is supplied on your handler. It supplies air at the pressure you specify for the whole handler. CAUTION: NEVER operate any Exatron equipment which requires compressed air without an approved air regulator and shutoff valve. The external air regulator assembly includes one or two oil/water particulate traps which should be visually inspected on occasion. This regulator should be set at factory air pressure of 80 PSI. The system requires a minimum of 80 PSI to operate properlyspecifically, to generate sufficient vacuum through the venturi to pick up devices from the trays. The incoming air line exits the regulator and splits to supply the vacuum generator and the internal air regulator/test site manifold.

Checking Incoming Air from the House Supply


The first step in ensuring a trouble-free air supply is to ensure the incoming air is adequate. Make sure the incoming air supply is at least 3 CFMs (cubic feet per minute). Make sure the needle on the handlers air regulator is not spiking or pulsing. If it is, the house air supply is inadequate.

Checking the Moisture/Dirt Trap in the Air Regulator


Check the moisture/dirt trap on the air regulator and the coalescing filter chamber. Verify that they are clean, empty and dry. There should be no oil and no water in any chamber. If they are dirty, physically disconnect the incoming air pressure supply from the air regulator and clean the trap and filter as needed. Excessive moisture and/or particulate buildup in the filter traps suggests the air supply to the system is too wet and/or dirty. CAUTION: Excessive moisture in the system can damage the vacuum generator and air valves.

5. Remove the white filter and clean or replace if necessary, and reassemble in reverse order. If you find it necessary to clean the trap and/or filter more often than once a month, you should correct the problem at your in-house air compressor. Check your manufacturers manual for the exact procedure necessary.

Checking the Air Regulator Shutoff Valve


Check the operation of the shutoff valve once a month. To check the operation of the shutoff valve: 1. Turn the Off/On switch off and verify that the air is indeed off. Turn the switch back on. 2. Check the PSI setting. > Some special-case changeover kits may require less than 80 PSI. However, in general, set the air regulator to 80 PSI. If the air regulator is turned off, turn it on by turning the Off/On switch one quarter-turn counterclockwise. You can leave the air regulator turned on except when you are checking its operation.

Solenoid Maintenance
CAUTION: NEVER use oil or lubricant of any kind on solenoids. Keep the solenoids as clean as possible. If the handler is used with devices that have excessive mold flash, the solenoids will require cleaning regularly. The frequency is dependent upon how much mold flash gets into the solenoids. When cleaning solenoids, take care not to put excessive stress on solenoid wiring. Check all wiring for signs of wear, exposed conditions, or broken connections. Replace as needed with identical type of wire: standard or flex, same gauge, insulation, color, etc. When cleaning solenoids, check the plungers to be sure there are no burrs of any kind on their shafts. Solenoid life is proportional to the handler environment and how often the solenoids are cleaned. We recommend that all solenoids be replaced every two million cycles as part of a good preventive maintenance program. Replace any bent or damaged solenoid return springs with new parts from the Exatron factory. Refer to the hardware specifications in the Parts List for the part numbers of all solenoids and springs in your handler.

Fiberoptic Photoelectric Sensor Guidelines

Adjusting Air Valves

Fiberoptic Photoelectric Sensor Guidelines


Each sensor on your handler is connected to a sensor controller, which displays whether the sensor is "seeing" any object. Most fiberoptic sensor controllers are set to L-ON (light on) by Exatron. This causes the output transistor to turn on when light is received by the sensor.

Figure 6-11: Sensor Controller Set to L-ON

Figure 6-12: Green and Red Indicator Lights

The green light is the Stable Operation Indicator. When the sensor is operating normally under stable conditions, the green light should be ON. The red light is the Light Reception Indicator. When the sensor is receiving light, the red light should be ON.

Obtaining Replacement Parts


Spare parts can be obtained from Exatron. It has always been Exatron policy to support all the equipment we have ever manufactured. If the part is still available, or can be made, we will get it for you. In most cases, faxed requests and shipment of replacement parts orders are processed within twenty-four hours of receipt by Exatron. See "Exatron Support Services" on page 1-10. The following sections discuss things to note when ordering replacement parts.

Guide to the Parts List


This guide shows how to use the parts list to determine the exact part number of any custom part in your machine in order to replace it if necessary. The parts list contains those items which Exatron has custom manufactured. They include machined parts, sheet metal, printed circuit boards, cables, and standard vendor parts which have been modified by Exatron. A limited number of standard vendor parts are also listed here. The title shown at the top of the list indicates the type of parts list. This should match your system's hardware. The parts list may change as Exatron improves each model with each new generation. If you have different generations of the same model, the parts list will vary. Whenever possible, Exatron makes design improvements capable of being used in older versions of the same model. The date on the parts list indicates the date of the last revision of the list, not necessarily the last revision of the system hardware. An explanation of the column categories in the parts list follows.

Chapter 7: Parts List

Exatron (Part Number)


This column contains the number assigned by Exatron to a specific part; for example, 8000D14 or PET-R44. The part number usually has two sections or number/letter sets. The first set of alphanumeric characters (e.g. 1900, 8000, PET, TAPE) indicates the model number of the system for which the part was originally designed. We use designs of parts from different models to lower inventory costs and to speed the design of custom handlers. The next three alphanumeric characters (e.g. 906, C06, P14) are the numerical count of the part as it was designed. These are the three characters that are stamped or laser marked onto most machined parts. Exatron occasionally uses additional letters or numbers to indicate special features. We use R and L to specify right and left hand parts. AM or HR will indicate parts for Ambient Machines or Hot Rails. We use 62 or 75 to indicate specific sizes of solenoid plungers. There are other special notations which may be used as part of our numbering system and which may change with time. Please contact the Exatron factory for assistance with any questions regarding special letters or numbers attached to part numbers.

Part Quantity Columns


The next two or three columns indicate the quantity of the specific part used in the manufacture of this system. This information may be useful in determining the correct part number and is used to build an assembly kit when your system was originally built.

Manual
Each row that has a 1 in this column has a corresponding wiring print that you can find in your manual. The print is identified by the part number.

Description
This is the name assigned to the part. In most cases, this description will clearly designate the part you wish to locate. Please include this description when ordering replacement parts.

Assembly
This column indicates which major system sub-assembly the part belongs to. In most cases, the "Assembly" can be ordered as a complete replacement part.

Size
These are dimensions in inches. The dimesions are listed left to right from smallest to largest: A x B x C. This is the starting size of the part prior to being machined.

Figure 7-1: Dimensions Listed From Smallest to Largest

Imagine a cube drawn around a part you are trying to identify. The dimensions of this cube can be checked against this size dimension and may be of assistance in determining a required part number. When the parts list indicates another Exatron part number in the size column, then the part was made by modifying an existing Exatron part. The modification is required for this handler only. When ordering replacement parts, be sure to use the part number and not the size. If the size column contains SEE PRINT, then the part is made from sheet metal or a PC board, or is something which is not made from a solid cube of material.

Finish
This column designates the finish used on the part. The following list is in alphabetic order. ALODINE: A non-anodic protective coating, a microscopic thin film commonly prescribed on aluminum to provide increased corrosion resistance and impose desired electrical resistance characteristics. BLACK: Black anodizing. BLUE: Blue anodizing. CLEAR: Clear anodizing, silver in color. HCR: Non-conductive, hard finish, dark green in color. NEDOX: Conductive, hard finish, silver in color, that eliminates static build-up and provides good electrical conductivity. Aluminum parts coated with nedox exhibit the hardness of steel without the weight. The finish protects against abrasive wear and corrosion. The dry-lubricated, non-stick surface also reduces friction of moving or sliding parts. NICKEL: Bright nickel plating, silver-chrome in color. NONE: No finish, natural material. PAINT: Painted part; colors may be beige, black or blue. RED: Red anodizing.

The test site on the Model 5000 handler may be interfaced to virtually any programmer and/or tester available. Some interfaces require custom configuration prior to shipment, but the only requirement for a given programmer or tester itself is that it be capable of issuing and accepting commands to and from the handler or the system controller. There are two basic parts to the handler's interface with your programmer/tester. The first part is the DUT interface. The DUT Interface connects the handler's test contacts to the tester's test socket. There are many ways to accomplish this, depending upon application and type of changeover kit. A direct dock interface which connects the tester directly to the handler con-

tacts provides the best performance, although other interface methods are available. In most cases, the hardware required for the DUT interface will be built and installed at EXATRON. Therefore, the DUT interface will not be discussed here. The second basic part to every interface is the control interface. The control interface allows the handler to send a Start command to the tester, and subsequently allows the tester to instruct the handler how to process the device under test. The handler is equipped with a variety of ways to accomplish this task using two basic means of access: a parallel port (EXATRON'S "Handler Port") and an RS-232 serial port. The handler has a number of operating features which relate to the handler's tester control interface. Both the Handler Port and RS-232 Port have several distinctive options from which to choose. These various control interfaces available from EXATRON are the subject of the following discussion. They have been organized into three categories: General Interface Options, (common to both Handler Port and RS 232 Port) (page 9-2) Specific Handler Port Interface Options (page 9-5) Specific RS-232 Interface Options (page 9-9)

General Interface Options and Setup


Accessing a Handler Control Interface
When the handler powers up, you will be given the opportunity to "PICK INTERFACE?" If you press the <ENTER> key, the previously selected interface (or default interface, if RAM was cleared) will be used. Or to access this option at another time, press the <MANUAL> key and then press the <4> key. Listed below are the standard interfaces currently supplied with the handler. NOTE: New interfaces are added to the handler from time to time. Contact EXATRON for updates as required. From "PICK INTERFACE?" displayed on the front panel: <1> key sets the handler to use "EXATRON RS-232" <2> key sets the handler to use "HANDLER PORT" <3> key starts "CYCLE ONLY NO T" (no test) <4-0> keys N/A <ENTER> key enters your selection into the handler

General Interface Options and Setup

General Interface RAM Selections

General Interface RAM Selections


Listed below are addresses in the handler's battery backed-up RAM which may be edited to fine tune the handler for your specific programmer/tester and sorting requirements when using either the Handler Port (parallel) or the RS-232 serial port. These addresses are not part of the standard power-up selections and may be modified only by changing the RAM as described in "Changing RAM" on page 3-58.

INTERFACE TYPE: ADDRESS 00B7


This address allows the user to set the default interface to be used by the handler. The available data settings are: 25 = EXATRON RS-232 26 = HANDLER PORT 39 = CYCLE ONLY

TEST SOL DELAY: ADDRESS 0096


This delay adds "settling" time to the DUT. The delay allows the DUT more time to come to rest in the test site before the contacts close. The delay counts down in 10-millisecond steps.

STOP ON FAIL Y/N: ADDRESS 00A5


The available data settings are: 30 = STOP ON FAIL YES FF = Place failed devices in Fail tube; no stop on fail This option allows the handler to Stop on Fail, or not. The handler can either automatically cycle a failed device into an output tube, or the handler can be set to stop. If set to STOP ON FAIL YES, then the handler will stop on a failure and allow the operator to retest the device again and again, as often as desired. This is very useful when calibrating test fixtures and programs.

DOUBLE TEST SORT: ADDRESS 00AC


This address tells the handler which test sorts to double-test if desired. Each bit represents a tester sort. 00 = turns off double test for all sorts (bitmap: 0000 0000) FF = sets the tester to double test all sorts (bitmap: 1111 1111) FE = double-tests all sorts except Sort 1 (Sort 1 must be Pass) (bitmap: 0111 1111) 02 = double-tests only Sort 2 (bitmap: 0100 0000)

TESTER SORT SET UP: ADDRESSES 00AF TO 00B6


The handler uses the specifications shown in the following table to assign output bins to tester sorts. If the handler does not receive one of the following test Sorts, the handler will pause and display the message: "BAD TEST RESULT." The handler will output the HEX equivalent of the actual character received by the handler to the LEDs on the handler's output shuttle cover. LED #1 is bit 01, LED #8 is bit 80. Pressing the <CLEAR> key on the handler's front panel will flush the device from the test site and restart operation, or pressing <ENTER> will retry the test. When the handler does receive a proper result in the form of one of the test Sorts, the handler will open the test contacts and flash the output cover LED of the output bin selected. The handler will sort the DUT accordingly and start a new handling cycle.

Handler Port Simulator


An optional 8-bit LED Checker (#3000-521; see Figure 9-1) is available from Exatron that will allow the user to test the TTL Handler Port. This "blue box," as it is referred to at Exatron, will allow the user to test the handler I/O and can be used as a simulator. You can operate the handler without the tester connected. It also has LEDs connected to each input/output. This will help troubleshoot any interface problems. You can see the LEDs blink or not when a signal is either sent or received.

TTL Handler Port Interface


The TTL Handler Port interface uses simple +5 volt TTL-compatible signals to control the handler. This specialized parallel port interface uses an optional 24-pin "D" connector on the back of the control PC (Figure 9-3). It has been designed to be compatible with all Exatron gravityfeed Model 2000, 3000, and 5000 handlers.

The +5 volt output on the handler port (Pins 11, 23) is not to be used by or connected to the tester, unless it is isolated at the tester. Pins 12 and 24 are ground connections.

Figure 9-4: Standard TTLHandler Port Interface Timing Detail for One Tester

The handler first moves a device into the test site. After allowing time for the device to settle, (NOTE: this settling time is programmable; use address 0096) the test head plunger picks up the device and plunges it down toward the contactors. Then the handler issues a start pulse (Pin 10) to the tester. The start pulse width is programmable, (address 0098) but will be preset to 20 milliseconds. This pulse is normally High (+5) and goes Low for the pulse width. There is an additional signal available on Pin 22. This testing signal will go Low for the duration of the test. It will go Low at the start of the start pulse and will not go High again until the handler receives a sort signal.

9-7

Model 5000 Manual

Chapter 9: Test Interfaces

To complete the test, the tester must send back one of eight sort signals. These signals must be normally High and go Low for at least two milliseconds. The sorts must appear on Pin 1 through Pin 8 on the handler port connector. Exatron recommends that you use Pin 1 for PASS and Pin 2 for FAIL when using the handler in PASS/FAIL applications. The Input Sort is connected to a PAL device that "latches" the signal. The latch sets the falling edge of the sort signal ON. Make certain that your interface does not allow fast "glitches" which may become latched, causing the handler to mis-sort. If desired, the PAL may be modified to one that requires an "End of Test" edge as well. Further details are provided in the next section, "Handler Port Options". NOTE: EOT requires a special PAL, not typical equipment. Contact Exatron for more information. To abort the test, press the <CLEAR> key on the handler control panel. This will sort the DUT to the Home bin, output tube 5. Once the handler receives a sort pulse, it checks that: 1. The sort has a corresponding output. If not, the message "NO SORT ERROR" is displayed, advising that there are no outputs available. 2. Only one sort has been received. Only one sort signal is allowed. If multiple sorts were received, the message "MULTI SORT ERR" is displayed. The output shuttle cover LEDs will blink the pattern of the actual sorts latched by the handler. Two or more LEDs will blink, indicating the multiple sort error. If the received sort pulse is acceptable, the contacts will open and the device will be sorted to an output tube. Or, in the case of plunge-to-board changeover kits, the test site plunger will pick up the device and rise to its highest point. From there, the device will be sorted to an output tube.

Handler Port Options


EOT (END OF TEST)
The handler port is controlled by two PAL devices. These PALs control the polarity of the handler's input/output signals and whether "EOT" is to be used or not. The EOT input (pin 13) is not active unless the correct PAL is installed on the handler's Front Panel Card #5000-A89. The EOT signal, when used, will cause the handler to ignore all tester sort input signals until the EOT (normally High, active Low) is received by the handler. PAL A89-2 (Sum check 76B0) = No EOT signal required PAL A89-2EOT (Sum check 95B0) = EOT signal required by the handler Correct PALs may always be obtained from EXATRON at no charge.

Listed below are addresses in the handler's battery backed-up RAM which may be edited to fine-tune the handler for your specific programmer/tester and sorting requirements. These addresses are not part of the standard power-up selections and may be modified only by changing the RAM, as described in "Changing RAM" on page 3-58.

START PULSE WIDTH: ADDRESS 0098


This delay controls the Start of Test pulse width. The delay counts down in 1-millisecond steps. The standard default is "14." This sets the start test pulse width to 20 milliseconds. On interfaces using a PC to control the handler, a longer start pulse width may be required to guarantee that the PC sees the start test pulse from the handler.

CHECK SORT RESET: ADDRESS 00A2


The available selections are: 00 = On FF = Off The Check Sort Reset feature should always be used on handlers that are employing the Handler Port interface. This check verifies that all Sort signals to the handler are turned off at the end of the Start pulse (all Sorts are at Logic High). Occasions may arise during operation of the Handler Port interface when the handler sends a Start pulse to the tester, but the tester either does not see the Start signal, or the tester fails to clear the previous Sort signal. In the latter case, the previous Tester Sort signal is still active at the end of the Handler's current Start pulse. The handler correctly responds to the previous Sort signal, which means that the current device under test (DUT) will not be tested and will be mis-sorted. It may appear to the operator that the handler is making an error, when in fact the tester has made an error. Therefore, it is a good idea to set this check to ON whenever your application allows for it.

EXATRON RS-232 Interface


THE EXATRON RS-232 INTERFACE ALLOWS THE HANDLER TO BE INTERFACED TO VIRTUALLY ANY COMPUTER-BASED PIECE OF TEST EQUIPMENT. The user must write a program which communicates with the handler using the commands listed in this section. Typically, a NULL modem, female/female, 9 pin RS-232 cable is required for the computer/tester end. The RS-232 port uses the 25-pin RS-232 connector on the side of the handler. The RS-232 serial ports use only 3 wires to transport ASCII, or serial strings: Send Receive Ground The connector on the handler is a 25-pin RS-232-type "D" connector with female pins. The mating connector on the interface cable must use male pins. The RS-232 side panel port uses the following pins:

EXATRON RS-232 Commands


The following is a definition of a standard RS-232 control interface from an Exatron handler to one tester/one test site. For single testers using only one RS-232 port, but with multiple test sites, Exatron has a different RS-232 command set.

Handler/Tester Test Cycle Handshake Summary


For each cycle, the following exchange occurs. Handler sends: "H <CR>" (Cycle?) Tester sends: "R <CR>" (Ready) Handler sends: "S <CR>" (Start test) Tester sends: "1 <CR>" (Sort 1) or "2 <CR>" (Sort 2) or "3 <CR>" (Sort 3) or "4 <CR>" (Sort 4) or "5 <CR>" (Sort 5) or "6 <CR>" (Sort 6) or "7 <CR>" (Sort 7) or "8 <CR>" (Sort 8) NOTE: REMOTE RETEST ~ You may send a zero, "0 <CR>", to the handler as a test result. This will cause the handler to pick up the device and replunge/retest it. A new "S" will be sent to the tester. You may use the "0" response as many times as you wish. To end a test cycle, send the handler a "1" through "8" as a sort command.

EXATRON RS-232 Interface

Explanation of Test Cycle Handshake

The handler establishes proper communications at the outset of every cycle (except Retest cycles). To do so, an "H" and a carriage return, "<CR>," are sent by the handler to the tester at the start of each test cycle. The handler is seeking an "R <CR>", Ready, from the tester. The display will read: "WAITING FOR R." 2. TESTER SENDS AN "R," READY. 3. HANDLER CLOSES TEST CONTACTS ONTO THE DEVICE UNDER TEST (DUT). If an "R <CR>" is received, the handler will close the contacts or plunge the device onto the contacts. If the handler does not receive a response, the display will briefly read: "NO RESPONSE." "NO RESPONSE" will alternate with: "WAITING FOR R" once per second. Pressing the <ENTER> key on the front panel will cause the handler to send a new "H <CR>". If anything other than an "R <CR>" is received, the handler will pause and display the message: "BAD RESPONSE." The handler will output the hex equivalent of the actual character received by the handler to the LEDs on the handler's output shuttle cover. For example, LED #1 is bit 01; LED #8 is bit 80. Pressing the <ENTER> key on the front panel will cause the handler to send a new "H <CR>" and the handler will try again to receive an "R <CR>". Pressing the <CLEAR> key on the front panel will cause the handler to flush the device from the test site and restart operation. The display will read: "BIN 5 S0 FLUSH." 4. HANDLER SENDS AN "S <CR>," START TEST (FIRST TEST CYCLE). As stated above, once the handler receives an "R <CR>", the test contacts will close onto the DUT. The handler will allow time for the test contacts to close. Then the handler sends an "S <CR>" (Start Test) to the tester. The display will read: "END TEST." If you wish to abort the test at this point, press the <CLEAR> key. This will sort the DUT to the Home bin, output tube 5. NOTE: If the handler receives an incorrect bin sort, the message: "BAD TEST RESULT" will be displayed. The handler display will also flash the hex equivalent of the result received on the handler's output door LEDs. You can press the <ENTER> key to reissue a Start Test command and the handler will try a second test. You can press the <CLEAR> key to abort the test and restart operation, or send the handler an ASCII " * " or "2A" in hex. This will automatically flush the DUT and begin a new test cycle. 5. TESTER SENDS TEST SORT RESULT, "1" THROUGH "8" OR "0" FOR REMOTE RETEST. To complete a test, the handler must receive a test result. Please refer to the table under "TESTER SORT SET UP: ADDRESSES 00AF TO 00B6" on page 9-4. The handler uses the specifications shown in this table to assign output bins to tester sorts.

Model 5000 Manual

Chapter 9: Test Interfaces

You can re-assign any combination of bins to any sort by setting the selection in the handler's RAM. Be very careful not to assign the same bin(s) to both a "PASS" and a "FAIL" sort. Once a Sort/Bin setting has been determined and saved in the handler's RAM, we highly recommend saving the settings in the handler's EPROM as default settings. Contact the EXATRON factory for a free EPROM with changed RAM settings. 6. HANDLER OPENS TEST CONTACTS. 7. DUT CYCLES TO AN OUTPUT TUBE; A NEW CYCLE STARTS.

This address stores the ASCII letter that the EXATRON RS-232 interface will use as an output on a double test. The factory setting is "S" (53 in HEX.) The user may wish to distinguish between a "START 1 TEST" and a "START 2 TEST." The user may set this address to "D" (44 in HEX), in which case the handler will issue an "S" on a First Test Cycle and a "D" on any Double Test Cycles.
