Captronic Systems Integrates i1 into Signal Conditioner Unit

Category: i1
Company: Captronic Systems
Industry: Commercial | Platform: PXI


Captronic Systems Pvt Ltd of Bangalore, India, designs and develops custom automated test equipment, data acquisition, and control systems. Recently, Captronic Systems has integrated VPC's i1 connector in developing a Signal Conditioner Unit for a leading HVAC systems manufacturer. The Signal Conditioner Unit is used to interface between a National Instruments PXI system and a series of Printed Circuit Boards. The unit accommodates 200 channel digital inputs, 200 channel digital outputs, and resistor switching for serial interface boards. The customer required the unit to be portable, to be mountable to a 19" rack, and offer flexible connectivity to enable the testing of various UUT's through a simple change of the fixture. Captronic chose the i1 as the interface connector due to its compact size, ability to run all of the signal types through a single connector, and the short lead time which enabled engineers to meet the customer's deadline.
