What Is SLSC?
NI Switch Load and Signal Conditioning (SLSC) extends the PXI or CompactRIO platform with the ability to add custom front-end modules. With a standardized connectivity and form factor, it eliminates the fault-prone process of point-to-point wiring, simplifying the overall system.
SLSC reduces time spent on common needs across test systems. Using standard cables, the non-recurring engineering and point-to-point cabling to custom signal conditioning and common sensors is reduced. A key piece of NI's hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) architecture, SLSC amplifies your HIL investment by maximizing reuse.
Using SLSC for interfacing to line-replaceable units (LRUs), Saab Aeronautics simulators reduced cost and ensured maximum flexibility by offering a standardized commercial off-the-shelf alternative to costly and complex custom engineering.
Signal handling in LRU testing follows established patterns. With SLSC, you can take standard analog and digital I/O types and transform and manipulate the signal paths to implement inline functions that form the core of an LRU-validation architecture.
SLSC provides an open architecture for extending NI hardware when working with hardware-in the-loop (HIL) applications, PXI and CompactRIO systems, the ECU Test System (ECUTS), LabVIEW, VeriStand, and more.
Houses SLSC modules that provide switches, loads, and signal conditioning for PXI and CompactRIO hardware platforms.
Provides access to SLSC module functions to quickly prototype module designs.
