Pickering Interfaces, a provider of modular signal switching and instrumentation for electronic test and simulation, has extended its line-up of PCI precision programmable resistor solutions with the release of two PCI cards.

The PCI RTD Simulator Cards (50-262) contain six resistance channels each with exceptional resistance stability and fine setting resolution characteristics. Intended for the emulation of PT100 and PT1000 resistive temperature sensors, the 50-262 PCI RTD simulator range is offered with two resistance ranges; 90-250Ω and 900-2500Ω with the PT100 version providing 8mΩ setting resolution. Each programmable resistor can be programmed with resistance calls that set the resistance of the module to an accuracy of 0.1 per cent.

The PCI Strain Gauge Simulator Cards (50-265) are offered with six bridge channels, each channel simulates a strain gauge bridge. Four different models are offered in the 50-265 PCI strain gauge range, they include 350Ω, 1kΩ, 2kΩ and 3kΩ bridges. Each model allows very fine adjustment of the bridge resistance to allow emulation of high or low stresses using simple resistance calls. Each channel has a stored value corresponding to the bridge being in balance and the bridges can be driven from either an internal voltage source or an externally supplied voltage from a bridge measuring system.

Both of these PCI precision programmable resistor solutions are part of an increasing family of switching and simulation products available from Pickering Interfaces in the mature PCI format.

Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support. Pricing and availability information is supplied on their web site.
