Seskion PSI5 Pod

Hardware and software


The PSI5 POD offers selected functions of the PSI5-Simulyzer and is therefore the right interface box for less complex measurement situations.

  • Simplified development of sensor technology
  • Visualization / analysis tools in the PSI5 software
  • Test and simulation function

Professional data simulation

Facts about the PSI5 POD

In addition to the standard version, SesKion also offers modified versions as well as advanced hardware and software solutions for special measurement requirements.

    Standard Windows Gui application (optional): The protocol-specific Gui application offers a wide range of settings from the definition of signals, baud rates and error detection to trigger events. The visualization of the PSI5 bus communication facilitates troubleshooting and can also be easily saved. The PSI5 data is recorded with time stamps, whereby both import and export of data is possible.

  • API-ANSI-C (included in the box)
  • LabVIEW Lib (optional)
