(PresseBox) (Clacton-on-Sea, UK, )Pickering Interfaces, a global supplier in switching and instrumentation solutions, announced today it will be showcasing several new additions to its comprehensive line of PXI & LXI products at electronica 2008 in Munich, November 11th to 14th.
"This global event 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. "Electronica 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".
For the show we would like to highlight amongst other products:
The 60-55X family are high density switching matrices each housed in a compact 1U rack-mount enclosure with a fully compliant LXI Ethernet interface. With matrix sizes from 512x8 to 64x64, 2A switch capability and up to 250V voltage rating, these modules are ideal for test systems with large switching requirements. For power signal routing, the 60-600 is a cross-point matrix with a 10 A rating capable of switching voltages up to 30 VDC or 250 VAC and available in a variety of configurations from 64x4 to 16x16.
Our unrivalled range of PXI switching solutions now includes 8 new high current solid state relay modules, configured as Fault Insertion, SPST Relay, Multiplexer and Matrix switches with ratings of either 10A/200V or 30A/40V. We will be featuring several new PXI Precision Programmable Resistor modules, including specific RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) and Strain Gauge Simulators capable of 0.1% accuracy and 2mohm resolution.
Also on show will be a new family of 50 and 75 ohm 3GHz RF switching modules which offer the highest density and performance available in the PXI form factor. All of these PXI modules may also be used in our Ethernet-controlled LXI modular switching chassis.
A comprehensive range of cabling accessories and software support tools ensures quick and easy integration of all of our products into any test system with a minimum of user efforts.
About the LXI Standard
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.
