  • Low-Density PXI Multiplexer Switch Modules

    Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    Pickering's range of low-density PXI multiplexer switch modules are ideal for applications requiring a lower number of channels and poles. All modules are based on high quality ruthenium reed relays that switch up to 150V, 1.2 Amp with 20W max power or high quality electro-mechanical relays (EMR) that switch up to 300V, 2 Amp with 60W max power.

  • Low-Density PXI Switch Matrix Modules

    Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    Our low-density PXI switch matrix modules are a cost-effective solution for applications that require relatively small matrices in the PXI format. These low-density switch matrices can be expanded by connecting together multiple modules, however, we recommend that users look at the higher density switch matrix modules that involve less user configuration.

Each simulator channel includes an independent input for the Excitation Voltage and a bridge output. The Excitation Voltage port can be driven by an AC or a DC source. The bridge circuit includes three fixed resistors and a fourth programmable resistor that can be adjusted over a narrow resistance range with fine adjustment capability and excellent accuracy. The adjustment range provided is sufficient to simulate quarter, half or full bridge circuits. The standard bridge impedances are 350, 1k, 1.5k, 2k and 3k. These modules are extremely simple to use, the variable resistor element can be programmed using a simple resistance call. The module supplies the user with the resistance value required to balance the bridge, and the resistance call to the simulator can be varied above and below this value to simulate extension and compression of the strain gauge resistor.
