Rob5x Laboratory Test Automation

Complete, easily-programable, 5-axis robot installation facilitates automation of test processes and improves reproducability when testing requires manipulation of the device under test

To meet the challeges and rigorous standards for testing contactless smart card, readers and NFC products, KEOLABS combines automation with the Rob5x, 5-axis robot installation, and ProxiLAB platform innovations that:

  • Improve repeatability in testing where physical manipulation of the DUT is required
  • Provide unmatched positioning and movement control required by the latest test standards
  • Speed throughput, notably for batch interoperability testing of contactless cards, tags and readers

While 3 axis solutions allow positioning of a tested device on X, Y and Z coordinates, a robot allowing control of 5 axes of movement provides increased position control to include the device's planar orientation (tilt, yaw) and rotation. KEOLABS' Rob5x solution allows the user to easily define mutiple trajectories and orientations of the device under test in a way that is both precise and reproducible. These controls, combined with real time emulation and measurement tools failitate advanced testing such as dynamic entry of the passive device into the field of the reader or active device.

Ease-of-control, flexibility and speed of movement, and a vacuum pick-up accessories make it possible for Rob5x to rapidly test multiple smart cards to improve laboratory through put. Rob5x is a complete hardware/software test installations designed for precision, ease of use, safety and durability. In addition, users benefit from all the added advantages of a 5-axis system at a price that is equivalent to competing 3 axis solutions.
