  • PXI RTD Simulator Module 12 Channel PT100

    40-262-201 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    The 40-262 is a 3U PXI module range that supports 6 (in one slot), 12 or 18 (in two slots) channels of RTD simulation. Based on the design principles of our 40-260 PXI Precision Resistor, this RTD simulator module can provide a setting resolution of <8m (PT100) or <90m (PT1000) and a resistance accuracy of better than 0.1% on all channels. Each simulation channel is able to provide a short or open circuit setting to simulate faulty wiring connections to a sensor. Calibration or verification of each resistor channel can be verified by using the calibration port connected to a high performance DMM and a supplied software package. Each module can be specified with a resistance range of either 90 to 250 suitable for PT100 simulation (40-262-001/201/101),or 900 to 2500 suitable for PT1000 simulation (40-262-002/202/102). Both resistance ranges are suitable for simulatinga temperature range of approximately -25C to 410C for their given sensor type. The use of resistance value calls makesprogramming simple, an API to convert temperature requests to resistance calls using a model of the sensor being used isalso available. Each channel can operate with a differential input voltage range of greater than 15V relative to a definedcommon mode voltage. The common mode voltage can be set to 0V, (input range of at least 15V), +12V (input range of -3V to+27V), -12V (input range of -27V to +3V) or an external comm>

  • Octal 4 to 1 50 600MHz PXI RF Multiplexer

    40-760-008 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    This 4 to 1 multiplexer is part of a range of RF multiplexers available in the following configurations: dual, quad and octal 4 to 1, single, dual and quad 8 to 1, single and dual 16 to 1 and single 32 to 1. All multiplexers have the option of automatic terminations which offer advantages at system level by reducing the presence of standing waves in the system which can cause degradation in isolation and crosstalk. These RF multiplexers exhibit low insertion loss and VSWR through the use of modern RF relay technology at an affordable cost. Each MUX has been carefully designed to ensure excellent and repeatable RF characteristics to frequencies of 600MHz with each path having a nominally equal insertion loss. The injection of noise and unwanted signals into the signal paths has been minimized by careful attention to the mechanical and electrical design. User connections are made via SMB connectors; you can find the associated RF cable & connector accessories data sheet under the downloads tab above.

  • PXI Strain Gauge Simulator Module 2-Channel, 1.5K

    40-265-402 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    The 40-265 range consists of 6, 4 or 2 channel modules (this version is the 2-channel, 1.5) that simulate the operation of a range of strain gauges making it ideal for testing strain gauge meters and a wide variety of industrial control systems. The range provides a simple way of replacing in house developed sensors with a low cost simulator having excellent performance. The 40-265 uses the same resistor bridge techniques that real life strain gauges are based on, ensuring accurate emulation under all conditions. 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.
