The Inner Tracker of the LHCb experiment is a silicon microstrip detector consisting of 336 detector modules with either one or two sensors. The module production is now underway and we present here the setup employed for module testing during the production. The setup is based in the same electronics that will e used in the final experiment. We perform burning and ageing tests with the help of a custom made Temperature Cycling Box controlled with LabVIEW under Windows. The DAQ is done in another pc running Linux. Here we integrate the different C/C++ libraries used to communicate to the LHCb Time and Fast Control system, Esperiment Control System, and Data Acquisition.
