The PXI fault/signal insertion matrix design is based on Pickering’s proven BRIC architecture that allows the matrix size required for an application to be selected from the many versions available. 

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.
