Pickering Interfaces' signal routing software - Switch Path ManagerSwitch Path Manager Signal Routing Software

    Our signal routing software, Switch Path Manager (SPM), simplifies signal routing through switching systems and speeds up the development of switching system software. Switch Path Manager supports our switching modules and the interconnection between them. Once a switching system model has been created, simply defining the endpoints that are required to be connected together can perform signal routing. The ability to automate signal routing results in effective and easy switching system management—safely and quickly. Switch Path Manager is available in a full version and a lower-cost lite version. Take a look at some of these SPM resources and find additional resources here.

    SPM Features:

    • Manages Complex Switching Systems
    • Reduces Switching Software Development Effort
    • Debug Monitor and Manual Control Capability
    • Supports all Pickering PXI, LXI and PCI Switching 
    • APIs available for C, C++, .NET, LabWindows™/CVI and LabVIEW® 
    • Windows 32-bit or 64-bit Compatible 
    • Free Evaluation License 
    • Provides Switching Safety Features, including Short Circuit Detection and Endpoint Protection: 
      • Short Circuit Detection avoids shorting the blue path with the green path when trying to apply the red path via the 2-pole relay
