Data Sheet
Cut time to market by 20% for
new products by automating
manual test procedures
Reduce Capital Costs
Faster and more detailed
testing with Torridon means
fewer test systems are required
in the lab
Reduce Human Error
Removing human intervention
during
tests
increases
consistency and results in far
fewer mistakes. Test scripting
provides logging and 100%
repeatability
Increase Product Reliability
Advanced techniques, such as
bounds testing and fault
injection provide a higher level
of confidence and reduced field
returns
Torridon Cable Pull Modules:
Automated solution for Cable Pull / Push
and Fault Injection. Cable Pull Modules
vastly reduce test duration and
introduce a level of repeatability and
precision that is impossible during
manual tests.
Complete Automation:
Any
test
that
requires
manual
intervention to pull or plug a drive can
now be fully automated.
Simple Integration:
The Torridon System works with your
existing automated test setup and
integrates with minimal effort. A simple
command set allows for easy scripting.
Quarch provides full support as standard
while you get started
