Take a look at our video:
Automated Fault Insertion and its Role in Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Simulation

All of our fault insertion matrices feature a breakout arrangement that allows faults to be attached to the sensor lines via the Y axis. This includes the breaking of a connection or the adding of a series defect – all of which can simulate connectivity problems in the system. The three pin breakout versions allow the connection to be swapped for a “bad” sensor simulation.The use of a programmable matrix for fault insertion ensures testing is fast to perform and can be reproduced on subsequent test cycles in the event of corrective action or a system upgrade.

We also offer mating cables and connectors for these modules to ensure speedy and successful system integration. We stand behind our products with a three-year warranty.
