DeskLab FIU – Multichannel Scriptable Fault Insertion Unit
Automotive and industrial control systems are exposed to a wide variety of environmental challenges which may result in control and power signals becoming damaged or corrupted. Simulating these in the laboratory is vital to ensure that they are well handled and correctly identified to allow easy diagnosis and repair.
The use of a fault insertion unit allows error conditions to be applied under the control of a test system. Typical faults include short circuits to ground or other voltages, open circuits and signal to signal shorts. In addition, faults do not happen in isolation and so there is a need for the insertion of multiple faults simultaneously.
The DeskLab FIU is specifically designed to assist engineers in this process by providing 8 controllable fault channels, providing a powerful tool to emulate real situations in the laboratory.
