- Pickering Interfaces has launched a family of 110 high-accuracy programmable resistor modules of 2.5 W, 5 W or 10 W with a nominal power of 100 V or limited by power.
PXI modules of the Pickering Interfaces 40-251/2/2/2/3 family are designed for applications requiring a programmable resistance of precise medium power, such as a programmable load for ECU testing and fuel level detection.
Available in modular PXI format for flexible and scalable system integration, the 40-251/2/3 model 40-251/2/3 resistance modules are compatible with a wide range of chassis, including PXI, PXIe Hybrid, cPCI and Pickering USB/LXI chassis, for flexible functional integration of the test system.
With between 1 and 8 resistance channels per module, resistance settings from 1Ω to 22MΩ and resolutions from 0.125MΩ to 2MΩ, the most appropriate module can be selected for any specific application.
The resistance channels are simply programmed by using resistance calls to the software driver.
Each channel can be configured as a short-circuit or open circuit to simulate a wiring or sensor fault, and DMM module verification is provided via an optional calibration cable.
