The 40-192 is a 6 Channel Fault Insertion switch designed for the simulation of fault conditions in automotive systems. The module uses solid state switching elements and is capable of switching current up to 10A. It is designed to be able to insert 3 different fault conditions between the test fixture and the equipment under test: Open-Circuit, Short-Circuit between UUT connections, Short-Circuit to other fault conditions such as POW/IGN/GND via Fault Insertion Bus. Through relays on each channel enable signals to the UUT to be held open-circuit. Fault Insertion Buses allow any channel to be shorted to any other channel and also enable any channel to be connected to an external fault condition.

Note: For new applications please consider the 40-192-012 version of this product which is functionally the same.
