FAST-RSS8

Resistive Sensor Simulation board with 8 galvanically isolated channels
Use Cases
  • Temperature sensor simulation
  • Also for pressure sensor or potentiometer simulation
  • Test system applications
Benefits
  • Onboard cold-junction compensation
  • Additional settings enable the use of different scales, such as temperature or pressure scales. The transformation of the input scale to the actual resistor value is performed by the ADS2 driver and the controller of the FAST-RSS8 system.
  • Sensor types per channel selectable
Key Features
  • Highly integrated board
  • Simulation of a wide variety of resistive sensors (PT100, PT1000, NTC, or PTC)
  • Original Equipment (OE) and Simulation test mode
  • Fully integrated in TechSAT‘s Avionics Development System (ADS2)
  • Controlled via Fast Ethernet
  • High accuracy time synchronization
  • 2-, 3-, or 4-wire operation
  • FAST API to user-written applications
