Pickering Interfaces shows a wide range of test and verification solutions at Productronica

Pickering Interfaces will be demonstrating its latest product developments at Productronica 2021, the world’s leading trade fair for electronics development and production, in Munich (16-19 November). Pickering will highlight a PXI-based battery management system (BMS) test demo combining its latest PXI multi-cell battery simulator module along with its other switch and simulation modules, including fault insertion switching, programmable resistors, RTD simulators inside their PXIe chassis for a fully flexible BMS test system.

The recently launched family of battery simulator modules is said to be ideal for electric vehicle (EV) battery stack emulation in BMS test applications. The 41-752A (PXI) and 43-752A (PXIe) modules enable direct voltage and current readback either programmatically or using Pickering's soft panel control. Each cell simulator is specified at ±5 mV from 1 V to 7 V.

Targeting EV, automotive, aerospace, energy storage and electric aircraft applications, the new battery simulator modules occupy a single PXI slot. They are available with two, four or six battery cell simulators per module that are fully isolated from ground and from each other facilitating series connection to simulate batteries in a stacked architecture. The 750 V isolation barrier allows the modules to be used to simulate lower power battery stacks that are commonly used for vehicle propulsion. Battery charging emulation is available up to 100 mA.

Also highlighted on the booth will be new 12-slot BRIC configurations for two popular PXI matrix switch models, and a graphics-based online tool used to create custom cable solutions for many applications. Visitors can also get the latest information about various LXI Chassis, a new 8-Slot Express Chassis, various PXI modules FI, Simulation, RF, Microwave, PXIe Precision Resistor Cards and a 65-200 Chassis with various plug-in cards.
