ECUTS-16000 Specifications

    Last Modified: March 24, 2021

    These specifications apply to all ECU Test System configuration options unless otherwise noted.


    Warranted specifications describe the performance of a model under stated operating conditions and are covered by the model warranty. Warranted specifications account for measurement uncertainties, temperature drift, and aging. Warranted specifications are ensured by design or verified during production and calibration.

    Characteristics describe values that are relevant to the use of the model under stated operating conditions but are not covered by the model warranty.

    • Typical specifications describe the performance met by a majority of models.
    • Nominal specifications describe an attribute that is based on design, conformance testing, or supplemental testing.
    • Measured specifications describe the measured performance of a representative model.

    Specifications are Warranted unless otherwise noted.


    Refer to for detailed specifications on the specific instruments used within the ECUTS-16000.

    Specifications are valid for the system and all included instruments under the following conditions unless otherwise noted.

    • ECU Test System environmental characteristics are met
    • Instrument-level conditions are met

    Calibration Conditions

    The performance of an externally calibrated instrument is defined in the instrument specifications. Additionally, specifications for externally calibrated instruments are only valid if the conditions defined in the instrument specifications are met. For applications that require calibrated power measurements, NI recommends using PXI and switch load and signal conditioning (SLSC) instrumentation.
