eBIRST is a range of USB controlled test tools capable of performing automated path resistance tests on Pickering Interfaces PXI, LXI or PCI controlled switching solutions. Each tool simply interfaces with the switching system's connector so a test can be run using the supplied Windows-based software.
The tools are offered in a variety of versions for testing different switching products, each version dedicated to one connector style and capable of testing any relay with a consistent path resistance at 30mA (any reed relay, solid state relay or typical EMR with 2A or less current rating).
Find what eBIRST tools your switching system needs here or download the data sheet under the downloads tab.
Most products require just a single test tool. Support for some connectors requires the use of a PCB based adapter or a cable adapter and a termination fixture.
