Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of modular signal switching and simulation for electronic test and verification, will debut their new 4-Slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis at IEEE AUTOTESTCON 2017 in Schaumburg, IL, September 12-15, 2017.
The new 4-Slot Modular Chassis (model 60-105) complements Pickering’s 2-slot USB/LXI Modular Chassis (model 60-104) in that they both offer a small, lightweight form/factor ideal for portable, benchtop and space restrictive applications. These chassis are designed for desk or rack mounting and feature remote control via USB or LXI Ethernet. Remote control over a network enables the switching function of a test system to be located as close as possible to the target equipment.
The new 4-slot chassis supports between one and four of Pickering’s 3U PXI modules. Possible systems include switching matrices up to 2208 crosspoints or up to 72 channels of programmable resistor/sensor simulation.
The chassis is USB 3 compatible and has a fully compliant LXI interface. These communications standards enable the chassis to be controlled directly through standard interfaces found on most personal computers and tablets that support HTML5, allowing for a very practical route into a variety of applications in the modular test and measurement market.
Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
