United Electronic Industries (UEI) has released the DNx-TC-378 8-Channel Thermocouple Simulator board and the DNx-RTD-388 8-Channel RTD Simulator board.
The boards are compatible with all of UEI’s popular “Cube”, RACKtangle® and FLATRACK I/O chassis and further complement UEI’s extensive simulator output offerings, which include RVDT / LVDT, Synchro / Resolver and Strain Gage boards. All boards are covered by UEI’s ten-year availability guarantee to ensure long-term success in your applications.
The DNx-TC-378 is a high-precision thermocouple (TC) simulator offering 16-bit resolution and offers better than 0.6°C accuracy with most thermocouple types. Each channel is fully isolated from all others and is capable of simulating 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.
The DNx-RTD-388 simulates 1000Ω RTDs and is based on actual switched resistors, precisely duplicating the behaviour of actual RTDs. The board supports 2, 3 and 4-wire configurations with an 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 1000 Ω 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.
