Program and Test Sensors Much Faster

Your Challenge

when programming and testing sensor

The number and variety of sensors continues to grow. With that, programming and teach-in time rises.

Over the past two decades, the number of sensors installed – not just in the automotive industry, but in all areas – has increased dramatically. At the same time, the variety of protocols used is proliferating.

How can the development time and production speed keep pace without painful cost inflation?

Our Solution

for fast and relaibale sensor programming

We have developed an innovative system that allows you to adjust, test, and program up to 40 sensors at the same time.

With our Sensor Programming Unit, or SPU for short, all providers along the value chain – from Tier 3 to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) – can leverage enormous savings potential.

Your advantages

  • Easy integration into existing production lines and control systems via network interfaces.
  • Flexible adaptation and expansion for different products and types thanks to real-time hardware via FPGA connection.
  • Suitable for all sensors in all industries.

The Sensor Programming Unit at a glance



The NI PXI system with its FPGA cards is the heart of the Sensor Programming Unit. With nine slots, it offers sufficient expansion space for future test scenarios.

Signal Conditioning Chassis


The chassis can hold up to ten sensor cards, so a maximum of 40 sensors can be programmed in parallel. In addition, 40 industrial 24V DO channels are available for specific controls.

Sensor Card(s)


Each sensor card can condition signals from up to four sensors in parallel. In addition, both current and capacitance measurements can be carried out on all connected sensors.
