The 40-203-001 (PXI) and 42-203-001 (PXIe) are designed to simulate common faults on high-speed two wire communication interfaces such as 1000Base-T1. They support 3 channels of two wire serial interfaces. Each channel pair can simulate an open fault in either or both wires, and using the fault bus switches can simulate short between both wires or a short to one of two externally applied fault connections – such as battery supply or ground - via two fault buses.

Each channel can carry up to 0.8 A and is rated up to 100 V between wire pairs. The wire pairs have controlled transmission line impedance suited to most differential signalling systems, including high-speed 1000Base-T1, the fault buses are capable of carrying 0.8 A and also have controlled transmission line impedance. The front panel signal connectors are easy to use MMCX which are fully supported by our range of connector accessories. The module uses high quality reed relays designed for high frequency application with a long service life.
