Automation / Robotics Electronics Test & Measurement Sensor sensor Simulator Simulator

HIGHLAND TECHNOLOGY Model P330 Precision aerospace sensor simulator can simulate capacitive oil or fuel level sensors. Four independent isolated channels can each simulate both capacitance and resistance, from 5pF to 5000pF and 5K ohms to over 10Megs. The architecture also supports simulation of two tank level sensors with reference electrodes and provides sensor/cable fault simulation. Product allows glitch-free level simulation to 1% accuracy with 16-bit resolution on capacitance and resistance. Product also reports sensor excitation voltage and frequency and includes built-in self-test. Interfaces include Ethernet and USB.
