Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of signal switching and simulation solutions used in electronic test and verification, will showcase their broad catalog of PXI, LXI and PCI solutions at the KeLiang User Group Conference on June 28-30 in Shanghai, China. These products include Pickering’s PXI and PCI Simulation and PXI Fault Insertion products as well as their new 2-slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis. Below is a preview of some of the products they will be highlighting:
2-slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis (model 60-104) – this new chassis offers a small lightweight form factor, making it ideal for portable, benchtop and space restrictive applications. It supports one or two 3U Pickering PXI modules and accepts the majority of Pickering’s PXI products. The USB compatible and LXI compliant interfaces enable the chassis to be controlled directly through standard interfaces found on most personal computers—allowing for a very cost effective route into the modular test and measurement market.
2 Amp PXI Fault Insertion Switch (model 40-190B) – a 74-channel fault insertion switch primarily designed for the simulation of fault conditions in automotive applications involving the reliability testing of safety critical controllers. These were designed to be able to insert three different fault conditions between the test fixture and the equipment under test including: short-circuit to other fault conditions, short-circuit between UUT connections, and short-circuit to other fault conditions such as POW/IGN/GND via a fault insertion bus.
PXI Precision Programmable Resistor Module (model 40-297) – Designed as a simple solution for applications requiring accurate simulation of resistive sensors, this series includes 50 model configurations per platform (this model is also available in PCI form/factor). Each version offers users the choice of channel count, range and setting resolution. With resolution from 0.125Ω to 2Ω and channel counts from 3 to 18 and basic accuracy is 0.2% ± resolution.
Millivolt Thermocouple PXI Simulator Module (model 41-760) – A low-voltage source module ideal for simulating the operation of a thermocouple. This module supports up to 32 channels from a single-slot 3U PXI module, each with an independent output of -100mV to +100mV and a remote sense that allows for the correction of ground voltages on each channel.
Switch Path Manager Signal Routing Software – this new signal routing software simplifies signal routing through switching systems and speeds up the development of switching system software. Switch Path Manager supports Pickering's PXI, LXI, PCI and GPIB switching modules and the interconnection between these products.
Pickering will also be showing a range of PXI switching, PXI Precision Resistors and supporting cables and connector solutions as well as their eBIRST™ Switching System Test Tools. The eBIRST tools simplify switching system fault-finding by quickly testing the system and identifying the faulty relays. Once identified, the tools then display a graphical representation of the switching system’s PCB assembly, highlighting the relays that need to be replaced.
Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
