Pickering Interfaces is pleased to announce the expansion of their range of 1-pole High-Density PXI Matrix Modules. These PXI Matrix Modules (40-520 family) are high-density matrices with 22 different configurations and up to 256 crosspoints to suit a large variety of user requirements. The choice of six bus widths (x16, x12, x8, x6, x4 and x2) enables competitively priced solutions using Pickering Electronics’ instrumentation quality reed relays.
These relays offer very long life with good low-level switching performance and excellent contact resistance stability. The introduction of the 40-520 family builds on Pickering Interfaces’ long history of PXI Matrix module development by including robust 1A 150VDC switching, simple single PCB construction with easy reed relay maintenance. The range comes with Pickering’s Built-in Relay Self-Test (BIRST) and is also supported by their eBIRST Switching System Test Tools. These tools provide a quick and simple way of finding relay failures within the modules.
Typical applications include signal routing in automatic test equipment (ATE) and data acquisition (DAQ) systems.
