CATS Overview

CATS Benefits | CATS Architecture | CATS Product Line

Fastek's Configurable Automated Test System (CATS) line of preconfigured, pre-engineered, modular testing systems that offer advanced test, measurement, and control solutions in standardized "off-the-shelf" configurable packages. Most projects utilizing pre-engineered products will require no custom Fastek project engineering services.

Which industries can benefit from a CATS?

  • The CATS is designed specifically to address Commercial, Industrial, Agricultural, Medical, and Avionics depot and MRO test applications.
  • Any customer that needs a test solution ready to go in WEEKS (not MONTHS).

What hardware platform do the CATS operate on?

  • National Instruments (NI) cDaq, cRIO, or PXi

Test System Interfaces

Each Fastek CATS interface employs a configurable design that allows customization of the system using some of the platform's standard connector options (sample connectors shown), without incurring the cost and design time typically associated with a customized functional test system.

Connectors can be configured for power, signal or coaxial connections - providing the user with wide range of supporting options.
