The design phase of this project started with a search for existing commercial solutions for thermistor simulation. Despite working with several hardware vendors to find an affordable solution, DMC was unable to find a system meeting the application requirements within the program budget.
As a result, DMC leveraged its printed circuit board (PCB) design and development expertise to manufacture several custom printed circuit boards to provide the required performance within the Client’s budget. These PCBs were assembled in a 19" rack mount enclosure to provide a single, compact and integrated thermistor simulation solution for the Client’s overall data acquisition system.
Overall this custom component approach saved our Client time, complexity, and costs over available off the shelf solutions.
