Pickering Interfaces a leading provider of modular signal switching and simulation for electronic test and verification, will showcase their broad catalogue of PXI, PCI and Ethernet LXI products and software solutions for automotive applications in stand 8036 at the Testing Expo – Automotive – China 2017, Shanghai, China. Below are some of the products that will be highlighted at the Expo:
4-slot and 2-slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis (model 60-105/104) – We have recently released the 4-slot version of our USB/LXI Modular Chassis which compliments the 2-slot version in that they both offer a small, lightweight form/factor ideal for portable benchtop and space restrictive applications. These chassis are designed for desk or rack mounting and feature remote control via USB or LXI Ethernet. Remote control over a network enables the switching function of a test system to be located as close as possible to the target equipment. This new 4-slot Chassis supports between one and four Pickering 3U PXI modules. Possible systems include switching matrices up to 2208 crosspoints or up to 72 channels of programmable resistor/sensor simulation.
Serial Interface PXI Fault Insertion Module (model 40-200) – This module is designed to simulate common faults on two wire communication interfaces such as CAN Bus and FlexRay. The 40-200 allows the introduction of fault connections that include data paths open; data paths shorted together and data paths shorted to externally applied faults such as power supplies and ground. (This model is also available in PCI form/factor)
2 Amp PXI Fault Insertion Module (model 40-190B) – These fault insertion modules are available with 74, 64, or 32 channels and provide a high-density low-cost solution. They were primarily designed for the simulation of fault conditions in automotive applications involving the reliability testing of safety critical controllers.
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 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.
Switch Path Manager Signal Routing Software – This 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, PCI, and LXI switching and simulation products. Also highlighted in the booth will be their eBIRST Switching System Test Tools. These tools, designed specifically for Pickering’s PXI, PCI or LXI (Ethernet) products, simplify switching system faultfinding by quickly testing the system and graphically identifying the faulty relays.
Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
