Pickering Interfaces will be showcasing their latest PXI, PCI& LXI switching and simulation solutions and software in stand 9009 at the Automotive Testing Expo, 6-8 March 2017. These products include:
2-slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis (model 60-104) – This new chassis offers a small lightweight form factor, making it ideal for portable, benchtop and space restrictive applications. It supports one or two 3U PXI modules and accepts the majority of Pickering’s PXI products. The USB compatible and LXI compliant interfaces enable the chassis to be controlled directly through standard interfaces found on most personal computers—allowing for a very cost effective route into the modular test and measurement market.
2 Amp PXI Fault Insertion Module (model 40-190B) – These fault insertion modules are available with 74, 64, or 32 channels and provide a high-density low-cost solution. They were primarily designed for the simulation of fault conditions in automotive applications involving the reliability testing of safety critical controllers.
3U 16 Amp PXI Power Relay Module (model 40-161) – These switching modules are capable of switching currents up to 16 Amps and voltages up to 250VAC. This range is available with configurations of 16, 12, or 10 SPST, or 12 or 6 SPDT power relays. These power relay modules are intended for switching heavy AC or DC loads or for the slave switching of large external relays, contactors and solenoids.
PXI Precision Programmable Resistor Module (model 40-261) – These resistor modules feature fine resistance setting resolution with excellent resistance stability and accuracy through the use of innovative switching networks and software correction techniques. The modules support two identical resistor channels that can be set to values of between1.5Ω to 2.9kΩ or 10Ω to 36kΩ with a precision of better than 2mΩ (40-261-001) or 15mΩ (40-261-002) making them ideal for simulating sensors that can be accurately controlled to fine values.
Pickering will also be showing a range of PXI, PCI, and LXI switching and simulation products.
Also highlighted in the booth will be their eBIRST Switching System Test Tools. These tools, designed specifically for Pickering’s PXI, PCI or LXI (Ethernet) products, simplify switching system faultfinding by quickly testing the system and graphically identifying the faulty relays.
Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support. Pricing and availability information is supplied on their website at www.pickeringtest.com.
