Pickering Interfaces a leading provider of modular signal switching, simulation, and cabling for electronic test and verification, will showcase their broad catalogue of PXI, PCI, Ethernet LXI, cabling products, and software solutions at AMPER 2017, 21-24 March in Brno. These include the following new products:
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.
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.
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 sister company Pickering Connect will be showing their standard interconnection products including connectors, cables and connector blocks as well as their Cable Design Tool. The Cable Design Tool is a free graphics-based online tool that 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.
Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
