Pickering Interfaces will showcase its catalogue of PXI and Ethernet LXI switching solutions at Amper, in Hall 5, Booth 3.18 from 24th to 27th March 2015. These products include Pickering’s Ethernet LXI, PXI, Programmable Resistors, Microwave Multiplexer and PCI Ranges.
PXI Microwave Multiplexers (40-784A) support single, dual, or triple SP4T or SP6T relays and are available in a variety of different frequency options for 50Ω, from 6 to 40GHz. All models occupy just two 3U PXI slots and feature LEDs that indicate which path of the multiplexer is closed.
PXI and PCI Programmable Resistor Solutions cover applications that require low cost solutions through to those that require high precision and the best stability achievable. PXI High-speed USB Switching Systems include a USB Hub that can be used to connect USB devices under test or USB test equipment directly into PXI systems.
The use of high-density packaging and integrated backplanes enables BRIC PXI Large Matrix Modules to be implemented with no user configuration or special matrix expansion kits. These matrices use thru-hole mechanical relays and can be serviced using standard de-soldering tools simplifying repair and reducing down time. The BRIC's integrated design ensures high matrix performance with high signal bandwidth and fewer system implementation errors.
LXI Switching (Ethernet controlled) systems support large switching systems with simplified control through an Ethernet connection. LXI is the power of Ethernet and the web applied to test & measurement instruments, offering possibilities in test systems – local, remote, distributed and time-aware. Switching System Management tools reduce TCO for switching systems in all commonly used platforms.
All the PXI modules can be used in any PXI chassis, can be fitted to PXI hybrid slots in a PXIe chassis and can also be used in Pickering’s LXI Modular chassis for users preferring control via an Ethernet port.
Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of its manufactured products with a standard three year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
