Electronic measurement house Keysight Technologies Inc. has rolled out an automotive body and safety electronics reference design for testing control modules in the automotive technology space.
The TS-8989 electronic test module is a ready-to-go PXI-based test board that combines an eight-slot PXI chassis, an 11-slot switch/load unit with an integrated eight-channel DIO and a 12 volt DC power supply for fixture control. These features all come in a single compact box that will fit into any standard 19-inch rack system, Keysight says.
The company is offering additional instrumentation and software in the body and safety module for simulation of input sensors such as force sensors and positions sensors and a load card for simulating discrete switches such as wiper control switches providing multiple channels of discrete switching with user-defined loads that engineers can wire to the individual channels.
To simulate driving loads, such as wiper motors or actuating an electro mechanical component, Keysight is offering a series of high-current load cards with a different mix of load channels and handing of currents up to 40 amps.
The TS-8989 body and safety test module is available now at a starting price of $43,000.
