Pickering Connect, a provider of standard and custom connectivity solutions, will showcase their broad catalogue of products at Automaticon in Warsaw, 14th - 17th March. Pickering Connect’s products support all of Pickering Interface’s modules as well as supplying solutions for virtually any connectivity challenge. The products to be shown include:
Connectors – Simple mating connectors that can provide a method for integrators to wire to a part that mates with the front panel connector of the selected device. These are ideal for systems where low purchase cost is required and labor is available to undertake the wiring operation.
Cables – A range of cables with a mating connector on either one end or both ends. Cables can also be made available to convert between one connector style and another—for example converting between a high-density connector and 50 way Ribbon Cable connectors.
Connector Blocks – A connector block provides an interface between a mating connector and a set of screw-operated terminals. The use of these accessories simplifies the wiring operation to the cable. Most breakout boxes are provided with a complete metal enclosure to protect the wiring and the cable termination.
Along with their connectivity solutions, they will also be highlighting their Cable Design Tool. The Cable Design Tool is a free graphics-based online tool lets you define a cable assembly to exactly meet your requirements. The tool allows very detailed design characteristics including - selection of connector types, wire type, pin definitions, pin and cable labelling, cable bundling, length selection, sleeving and comments. Features include a built-in library of standard cable sets or design from scratch, the ability to store designs in the Cloud and develop them over time and you can create your own library and share with colleagues.
Also in the booth, will be their sister company Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of modular signal switching and simulation for electronic test and verification. They will be showcasing some of their newest switching and simulation products, including the following:
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.
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.
Pickering Connect and Pickering Interfaces stand behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support. Pricing and availability information is supplied on their websites at www.pickeringconnect.com or www.pickeringtest.com.
