New Pickering Product: LVDYT/RVDT/Resolver Simulator Module



We are excited to announce a new addition to our PXI simulation product range, an LVDT, RVDT, Resolver simulator. This high-performance and high-density solution is more versatile than competing products (generally limited to only one function), replacing multiple products with just one module that fits into a single PXI slot.

This new simulator features active circuitry that generates a signal that can be used to exercise DUTs (devices under test) that use either LVDT (Linear Variable Differential Transformer), RVDT (Rotary Variable Differential Transformer), or Resolver to measure motion and/or position.

Key features include:

  • Up to 4 channels of 5/6-Wire LVDT/RVDT or Resolver, or 8 channels of
    4-Wire LVDT/RVDT simulation
  • Input & output isolation transformers
  • Measurement & display of each input frequency & amplitude
  • Wide operational frequency band
  • External or internal excitation
  • Independent or shared excitation signal to each channel
  • Programmable phase delay
  • Open & short circuit simulation on inputs & outputs
  • Intuitive drivers and a graphical soft front panel for simple manual control
  • Supported by PXI or LXI Ethernet Chassis
  • PXIe version available upon request

Along with these new LVDT/RVDT & Resolver Simulator modules, we offer a wide range of other solutions for Sensor Simulation and Instrumentation including:

  • Programmable resistors and RTD simulation
  • Thermocouple simulators
  • Strain gauge simulators
  • Programmable loads to 15W (20W in the future)
  • Static digital I/O
  • Voltage amplifiers
  • Attenuators, high voltage and RF

10/27/2020 – NH Research Webinar: AC Load Testing Fundamentals

AC Load Testing Fundamentals Free Webinar:

Tuesday, October 27th, 2020 at 2 – 3 p.m. EDT (USA)

Register Here




This webinar will review the fundamentals of ac loading for testing applications across residential, commercial, electric vehicles, aerospace, and military markets. We’ll dive into key features and functions of both traditional and modern ac loading conditions and their many applications across these industries. The ability for ac loads to emulate complex load profiles to include harmonics and sub-cycle transients is important for testing the device and/or the grid to meet modern day requirements.
Learn about the most effective test approaches and test solutions to ensure accuracy, product performance, safety, and reduced time to market. Example applications include testing the grid, inverters, lock rotor current, V2G, EVSE, avionics, UPS, switch and fuses, and more.

Key Technical Concepts:

  • Regenerative power
  • AC load 4 quadrant operation
  • True power factor shift
  • Linear, non-linear, inductive and capacitive loading
  • Testing in various emulation modes: CC, CR, CP, SC
  • How to create complex load profiles
  • Harmonics and sub-cycle transients

10/14/2020 – Teledyne LeCroy Webinar: Don’t Let Ground Bounce Ruin Your Day

Date: Wed, October 14, 2020
Time: 11AM Pacific | 2PM Eastern

Register Here

Ground bounce is a common problem in packages, connectors and circuit boards. And it gets worse with shorter rise times. This insidious problem can cause enough cross talk to break almost any product.

In this webinar, we will look at the principles behind the root cause of ground bounce, how we can measure the ground bounce in your system, and based on the root cause, how we can design ground bounce out of your next product.

Presenter: Dr. Eric Bogatin, Signal Integrity Evangelis, Teledyne LeCroy

The digital oscilloscope has become the most commonly used test tool on the EMC engineer’s bench, but most engineers use only a fraction of the power available in these instruments. In addition, there are several overlooked aspect s which can significantly impact signal integrity and EMC measurement results.

Join us for this webinar as we uncover oscilloscope tools that can assist with advanced and more accurate methods for performing EMC testing.

Measurements included in our discussion will be:

  • EMC Measurement Categories and Requirements
  • Conducted Immunity Testing Requirements and Pulse Measurement Definitions
  • ESD Threshold Selection
  • Level-After-Pulse, Time-To-Value, and Parameter Limiters
  • ESD Verification and Test Setup
  • ISO10605:2008 Consecutive Parameter Trending
  • Sample Rate and Dynamic Range Impact on ESD Pulse Measurements
  • Much more!
