Automotive Testing Expo - China - 2018


Pickering Interfaces to Showcase Switching & Simulation Modules at Automotive Testing Expo - China

Auto Testing Expo China 2018Pickering 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 that increase automotive test system effectiveness and productivity in stand 8036 at the Automotive Testing Expo – China 2018, Shanghai, China. Below are some of the products that will be highlighted at the Expo: 

Millivolt Thermocouple PXI Simulator Module (model 41-760) – A low-voltage source module ideal for simulating the operation of a thermocouple and can be used for sensor emulation in ECU testing. 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. 

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) 

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. 

2 & 4-slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis (models 60-104 & 60-105) – These chassis both offer a small, lightweight form/factor ideal for portable, benchtop and space restrictive applications. They 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. 

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 fault finding 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.
