Abstract : The PS 6800 is an advanced type of automatic test equipment whose output is adapted for electronic data processing. While it can be used at intermediate steps during the manufacture of the cable, its greatest benefits are derived after the completion of the cable. Its rapid operation permits an increased amount of testing per unit of time over conventional methods. Its adaptation to data storage and electronic data processing results in vastly increased records of statistical data. As a side benefit, a printed test report for each cable is readily available to submit to the customer. The additional statistical data gathered are, in turn, applied to tighter quality control and quality improvement studies, thus guiding the cable manufacturer in his never-ending aim for optimizing his product.
