Programmable resistor modules target ECU testing

October 23, 2018 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Test equipment vendor Pickering Interfaces has launched a family of high-accuracy programmable resistor modules with up to 10W power handling capability. They target applications that require accurate medium-power programmable resistance such as a programmable load for the testing of Electronic Control Units (ECUs) and fuel level sensing. These ECUs are commonly used in the demanding, hi-reliability, Automotive, Military and Aerospace sectors.

Available in modular PXI format for flexible and scalable system integration, the model 40-251/2/3 resistor modules are compatible with a wide range of chassis, including PXI, PXIe Hybrid, cPCI and Pickering USB/LXI chassis, for flexible functional test system integration. With between 1 and 8 resistance channels per module, resistance settings from 1Ω to 22MΩ and resolutions from 0.125Ω to 2Ω, the most suitable module may be selected for any specific application.

Resistor channels are programmed by the use of resistance calls to the software driver. Each channel can be set as short or open circuit to simulate a wiring or sensor fault, and simplified DMM module verification is provided via an optional calibration cable.
