Stryker Instruments desired the development of a quick and efficient way to test the Command II Power Board, which is a variable input/output power supply. A Test Head was designed and built by Electrical and Computer Science Engineering students at Western Michigan University. The Test Head incorporates an electronic load designed to simulate variable operating loads of the Command II Power Board. Safety features and automated operation were designed and built in the Test Head. The Test Head is controlled and monitored through a computer. Software was written to implement the entire testing procedure enabling a nontechnical operator to carry out the testing of the Command II Power Board.
