Human-machine interface is the link between a user and a device. In protection and control relays the local human machine interface consist of a display, buttons, light-emitted diode indicators and communication ports. Human-machine interfaces are tested before assembly with visual inspection to ensure quality of LCDs and LEDs. The visual inspection test system of HMIs consists of a camera and lens, a light emitted diode analyser, software and a computer. Machine vision operations, such as corner detection and template matching, are used to process and analyse captured images.
Original camera and measurement device set-up have been used several years, and it should be upgraded. New camera and lens were installed in the system, and the aim of the thesis was to evaluate and improve the testing set-up and software to support each other, to get better images, and further, to improve the first pass yield.
Camera position and settings were adjusted to capture images with good quality. Features of upgraded set-up and software were tested, and development ideas are given for further improvement. Changes in the set-up and software show promising results by giving more accurate test results from production.
