How to Simulate Sensors with Resistances > 250 kΩ with the VT System
Can Vector support the simulation of a sensor with more than 250 kΩ resistance with a card for VT system (while VT2004A supports sensor simulation up to 250 kΩ)?
A higher resistance can be achieved when two channels of a VT2004A card are connected in series. For example channel 3 and channel 4 can be connected in series by connecting pin b of channel 3 is connected to pin a of channel 4.
The resulting resistance can be measured between channel 3 pin a and channel 4 pin b. Channel 3 and channel 4 resistance values need to be set separately in VT System Control. The resulting resistance is the sum of both values of channel 3 and 4 in this example. The combination of several channels can be encapsulated by adding specific Set‑/Get‑CAPL functions.
Channel 3 and 4 combined behave as a single channel and cannot be used used for other purpose in this example.
