Overview

PXI programmable resistors featuring fine resistance setting resolution and excellent resistance stability and accuracy through the use of advanced switching networks and software correction techniques. The two modules in this range support two identical resistor channels that can be set to values of between 1.5Ω to 2.9kΩ or 10Ω to 36kΩ with a precision of better than 2mΩ (40-261-001) or 15mΩ (40-261-002- this version) making them ideal for simulating sensors that can be accurately controlled to fine values. 

Thanks to the use of innovative technology these programmable resistors ensure all resistance values can be set—no missing values because of switch resistance or resistor tolerance. Applications include air bag squib, strain gauge and temperature dependent resistor emulation.
