Let me guide you through the post-assembly line tests after the overnight burn-in.
Post-Assembly Line Tests
This topic is part of a series: Spectrum On The Line
Check out Spectrum’s behind-the-scene looks through my camera!
- Part 1: Locking down the procedure
- Part 2: Stand assembly line
- Part 3: Optimized assembly line
- Part 4: After the burn-in (this topic)
In last month’s timeline update, we mentioned how the firmware team implemented factory command features to help set-up and test Spectrum on the assembly line. Because of this, much of what is shown here will now be automated. The benefit of these slower, manual tests is that they make it a lot easier to show the various tests that each Spectrum goes through after it’s stay in the burn-in room!
After these tests, comes the visual inspection. An operator thoroughly cleans the monitor with a slightly dampened cloth, then examines the housing, panel, gap tolerance, power button, and joystick. Any major defects are marked on a card and sent for repair.
Passed monitors are wrapped in their protective bag and packed into the box. An operator scans and inserts the power brick, wall plug, and (in this run) three signal cables. The bag has been changed to non-woven fabric, as detailed in a previous topic.
More to come
Our China team had our hands on those samples and recorded some advanced test procedures such as Delta E and color space measurements. We’ll be back with footage on those in the conclusion of our On The Line series!
