Overview

This PXI fault insertion switch uses solid state switching elements and is capable of carrying 40A on single channel or 30A on all channels at the same time and provides a robust solution to high current fault insertion.

It is designed to be able to insert three different fault conditions between the test fixture and the equipment under test:

  • Open-Circuit 
  • Short-Circuit between UUT connections 
  • Short-Circuit to external signals 

Through relays on each channel enable signals to the UUT to be set 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 signal such as Power, Ignition or Ground to simulate fault conditions. The module is supplied with 2 fault buses.  

Key Features

  • Six fault insertion channels
  • 40 Amp single channel
  • 30 Amp continuous on all channels
  • Simulation of various types of electrical fault, enabling rigorous fault testing
  • Two fault insertion buses
  • High inrush current rating
  • Switch +/-40V signals (AC or DC)
  • VISA/IVI & kernel drivers supplied for Windows XP/Vista/7/8
  • Supported by PXI or LXI Chassis
  • Supported by eBIRST Switching System Test Tools
  • Three year warranty
