Pickering Interfaces Showcases Their Comprehensive Line of PXI & LXI Switching and Instrumentation at National Electronics Week, London Earls Court, June 17-19, 2008
"This brand new show is perfect for us to demonstrate the breadth and depth of Pickering Interfaces unique product range", said Nick Hickford, Sales Manager UK of Pickering Interfaces. "National Electronics Week is a great opportunity to highlight the most complete range of switching cards and focused instrumentation in the industry to an even wider audience in the electronics market. Pickering has the tools necessary, allowing our clients to innovate without boundaries".
Debut at the show:
The 60-550 and 60-551 are high density matrices in a compact 1U rack-mounted enclosure with a fully compliant LXI interface. With matrix sizes of up to 512x8, 2A capability and up 250V voltage rating, the 60-550/1 are ideal for test systems requiring large switching matrices. A comprehensive range of cabling accessories and software support tools ensures the 60-550/1 can be quickly integrated into any test systems with a minimum of user effort.
Pickering Interfaces will be featuring their new range of PXI Precision Programmable Resistor modules, including an RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) Simulator, and their PXI Fault Insertion Modules for Hardware-In-the-Loop testing of control systems under fault conditions, with up to 20A current handling capability.
Also on show will be two new PXI switching modules designed specifically to address requirements for ARINC 608A switching in Aerospace test applications. All of these PXI products can be supported in any 3U PXI chassis, and also in Pickering Interfaces 60-100A LXI Modular Switching Chassis.
Pickering Interfaces has recently released the second edition of its successful publication- LXImate. The LXImate is a 130-page book providing an easy to read description of the LXI Standard, its evolution and product availability and copies will be available at the show together with its companion publication PXImate.
The LXI Standard is accepted as the natural replacement for GPIB, providing an interface that applies the power of the Web to test and measurement. LXI opens up new possibilities for the creation of time aware local and distributed test systems that are simple to configure and integrate using standard Ethernet interconnections. In less than two and half years since the publication of the standard almost 500 products have been introduced or upgraded by the major Test and Measurement vendors to comply with the standard.
