Clacton, UK –Pickering Interfaces is expanding its range of
LXI solutions with the introduction of two new modular LXI chassis.
The 60-102 and 60-103 are 7 and 18 slot modular chassis’ that accept from a
choice of over 500 Pickering Interfaces 3U PXI modules. This includes a
huge range of switching modules together with additional test functions such
as programmable power supplies, battery simulators, attenuators, digital
I/O, breadboards and programmable resistor cards.
The range of switching modules supported vary from low power reed relay
cards used for low current applications through to Matrices, multiplexer and
a range of higher power EMR relay products to RF/microwave and optical
switches. Pickering offer the industry’s highest density matrices with up to
9500 relays per chassis. Solid state switching with up to 40A current
capacity is supported along with a range of high voltage switching modules.
The variety of modules available allows the chassis to be used for a wide
variety of switching, control and sensor emulation applications.
Each chassis offers high cooling capacity and smart control of fan speed to
ensure quiet operation in office and laboratory environments and high
reliability under heavy load conditions. The current condition of the
chassis is displayed on front panel status LEDs and can also be monitored
remotely via a rear panel RS232 port
The LXI complaint interface permits simple control of the modules and
management of the chassis through web pages or an IVI programmatic
interface. Ethernet access ensures that the control is robust and simple to
access over short or long connection distances.
