Simulator Boards Support RTDs And Thermocouples

United Electronic Industries’ DNx-TC-378 8-Channel Thermocouple Simulator board and the DNx-RTD-388 8-Channel RTD Simulator board are compatible with all the company’s “Cube”, RACKtangle and FLATRACK I/O chassis.  Both boards are covered by UEI’s 10-Year Availability Guarantee to ensure long-term service.

 

 The DNx-TC-378 is a high-precision thermocouple (TC) simulator offering16-bit resolution and offers better than 0.6°C accuracy with most thermocouple types. Each channel is fully isolated from all others and can simulate the full TC range. Built in support for J, K, T, E, N, R, and S type TC is included. The board provides cold-junction compensation, so field connections can be made wherever required. The board will simulate an open TC and includes voltage and current diagnostic readback on each channel.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

The DNx-RTD-388 simulates 1000Ω RTDs and is based on actual switched resistors, precisely duplicating the behavior of actual RTDs. The board supports 2, 3 and 4-wire configurations with accuracy of 0.26°C (1Ω). The board is an ideal solution for simulator / SIL applications where an on-board device expects an RTD as an input. Both open and short circuit conditions are simulated. The board also has built in diagnostic current monitoring capability. The board is an ideal solution for simulator / SIL applications where an on-board device expects an RTD as an input. The RTD-388 series simulates a 1-kΩ RTD while the standard DNx-RTD-388-100 simulates 100Ω RTDs. Other resistance versions are available on a special-order basis.

 

Pricing starts at $1,600 for the DNx-TC-378 and $3,000 for the DNx-RTD-388. For greater insights and revelations
