New to Automated Testing? Here’s What You Need to Know

Perhaps you’ve decided it’s time to get into the automated testing scene. Digital multimeters just aren’t giving you the results you need. Or maybe you’ve missed one too many defects. Whatever brought you here, you won’t be sorry.

The first question you are probably asking is what you need to look for in an automated tester. There are many options to pick from. Cirris has provided a handy tool to help you decide.

You will want a cable tester that fits the needs of your company.


  • The types of cables or harnesses you are testing.
  • If you will need high voltage.
  • If components are involved.
All these things determine the type of tester you will buy.

Once you have found an automated test system you will want to learn how to use it. Most testers are built to be user-friendly. But you can always reference the tester manual, company website, or tech support if you have questions.

Some companies, like Cirris, even offer training sessions. These sessions are great for businesses just getting into automated testing. Call to find out when the next training session will take place.

If you are still confused about some of the practices or techniques of testing try looking online for answers. The Cirris Learning Center is full of helpful articles that can teach you everything from humid conditions to the problems with flux.

The bottom line is that automated testing will be a great benefit to your company. You will start seeing the benefits as soon as you test your first cable. From there you will watch productivity grow.
