Cutting edge technology for cable harness test program generation

The Austrian company wm-electronics, developed a brand new engineering software for cable harness test programming. The software supports aircraft manufacturers and MRO's from ECAD diagrams to the final cable harness test program in all critical phases. APG Studio has been developed around 3 loosely coupled modules, ECAD Front-End, Middleware and Output Driver. Customers benefit from this flexible design as they can order an interface for their ECAD, a driver for their cable harness tester and additionally new functions if required. APG Studio has all the features to build a harness test program, no matter if it has only a few dozen or tens of thousands of pins, says Dietmar Wendl, Technical Director of wm-electronics.

The developer has paid special attention to assist the avionics engineers in troubleshooting. If pins marked as FAILED (shorted or not connected) in the tester's error report, APG Studio helps the engineer to locate these nets and pins in the wiring diagram. A new Front-End for Zuken E3 series, which is coming soon, makes it even possible to auto-locate and highlight those nets, pins and components!

Both features can save many hours of work if a net is distributed over hundreds of pages. It is also possible to convert an existing harness test program back to a wiring diagram, in a format readable and editable by third party software like Zuken E3 series. A stand-alone version of APG Studio with only this feature is planned for the next release to support MRO's that usually have no wiring diagram for troubleshooting, says Dietmar Wendl.

APG Studio comes with a set of powerful functions and is not limited in any sort of capacity. The software can be updated at any time to include options like Jumpers, PromptEditor, Insulation NetGrouping, Analysis, ParallelModule and TroubleshootingAssistant.

APG Studio has been proven powerful and reliable in large aviation projects with more than 60.000 nets in the wiring diagram and test programs with up to 40.000 test points.
