      Application Background

      The automobile industry is flourishing in China in recent years. In order to guarantee the security of motor vehicles, the vehicle administration office needs regularly to carry out examination and inspection on vehicle security performance, adding much more workload to car inspection department, which may also increase human errors and negligence, as well as the total labor cost. The annual inspection of vehicle motors is an important insurance to traffic safety. To save labor and the loss caused by human errors or negligence, a kind of automatic inspection system is required to examine the security and safety of motor vehicle in a quick and highly efficient way.

       

      System Requirements

      The computerized vehicle inspection system consists of master control unit, server, network switch, inspection section , test section LED indicator , station machine, signal acquisition section , testing and controlling section and signal processing section etc. All sections work independently and transmit the testing data to master control unit for consolidation, processing, analysis and store in database. A inspection result analysis report will automatically generated and sent to the department in charge via Internet. System will automatically complete the inspection of all test index of annual inspection accurately and efficiently. The annual inspection of vehicle motors is an important insurance to traffic safety. therefore ,the vehicle security automatic inspection system must be low power, stable, reliable ,accurate, anti-shock/vibration, rich expansion, superb graphic display, and suitable for rugged environment. But most of the existing automobile inspection systems have such defect as low speed of inspection, bad versatility, difficulty in upgrading and transformation.

       

      System Solution

      NORCO cooperates closely with system integrators to enable them in providing complete solutions for a wide array of applications in various industries. NORCO newly developed RICH industrial PC is chosen by system integrators to construct the highly effective vehicle automatical inspection system. This system is widely used in the vehicle administration offices across China. This computerized vehicle inspection system adopts NORCO RICH-300A/B industrial PC as the hardware platform of its master control unit, which controls the front-end station machines via LAN. The station machines utilize NORCO RICH-300A/B industrial computer. Each station machine handles with its corresponding test items, and transmits the test data to the master control computer for data consolidation and result analysis, finally an inspection report is generated.

      RICH-300A is a 4U rackmount industrial control computer, specially designed for industrial applications. This computer utilizes SHB-950 full size CPU card, passive backplane PBP-13L4 with 13 slots. Special lockable single door design. Front panel provides system power button and reset button. System status LED indicates the power supply and HDD running status.System with dual ball bearing cooling fans for better ventilation. External interfaces such as USB, COM, LPT, PS/2, AUDIO, RJ-45 LAN and VGA to connect external devices for data transferring, backup and input. With other advantages such as dustproof, fast, low radiation, anti-interference and better EMC, this computing system is widely used in metallurgy, petrochemical industry, electromechanical device, medical and food industry, CNC, and other industrial fields, military, research field, etc.
