PXI Fault/Signal Insertion Modules

Wide Range of Matrix Sizes & Partially Populated Configurations, Ruthenium Reed Relay and Electro-mechanical Relay for Current Handling up to 10 Amps

Description

PXI Fault/Signal Insertion Modules 

Pickering’s range of PXI Fault/Signal Insertion Unit (FIU) switch products are designed specifically for safety critical applications where the response of a control system is required to be evaluated when sensor connections behave in unexpected ways. These modules are scalable solutions that can be used to switch signals between simulations and real-life devices in a multitude of hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation and test systems. The fault insertion unit can help to considerably simplify and accelerate the testing, diagnosis and integration work in HIL applications.

Pickering’s FIUs are available in a wide range of channel counts and fault bus configurations, with current handling capabilities from 0.3A to 40A. They are available in:

  • Breakout Connections for Wiring to Sensors
  • Pickering BRIC Architecture Provides Scalable Matrix Size
  • Wide Range of Matrix Sizes & Partially Populated Configurations Available
  • Ruthenium Reed Relay for Maximum Signal Performance
  • Electro-mechanical Relay for Current Handling up to 10 Amps
  • Occupy 4 or 8 3U PXI Slots

  • Selected modules are supported by our eBIRST Switching System Test Tools, these tools provide a quick and simple way of finding relay failures within LXI, PCI and PXI switch systems.

The PXI fault/signal insertion matrix design is based on Pickering’s proven BRIC architecture that allows the matrix size required for an application to be selected from the many versions available.

All of our fault/insertion matrices feature a breakout arrangement that allows faults to be attached to the sensor lines via the Y axis. This includes the breaking of a connection or the adding of a series defect – all of which can simulate connectivity problems in the system. The three pin breakout versions allow the connection to be swapped for a “bad” sensor simulation.

The use of a programmable matrix for fault insertion ensures testing is fast to perform and can be reproduced on subsequent test cycles in the event of corrective action or a system upgrade.

The tables below will help you to choose the appropriate module for your application.

Pickering’s PXI Fault/Signal Insertion Switch Modules feature a breakout arrangement that allows faults to be attached to the sensor lines, this includes the breaking of a connection or the adding of defect – all of which can simulate connectivity problems in the system. Two switching topologies are available:

  • Single signal paths with series switches and switches to connect to one or more fault buses
  • Pairs of signals with series switches, shorting switches between the signal pairs and switches to connect either signal to an external fault input.
