CLACTON-ON-SEA, England – Pickering Interfaces in Clacton-on-Sea, England, is introducing the 40-614 family of high-density 2-amp PXI multiplexers for signal routing in automatic test equipment (ATE) and data acquisition systems.

This family of RF and microwave devices is available in 20 different configurations, and uses high-quality electromechanical signal relays to enable each channel to switch current as strong as 2 amps and voltage as strong as 200 volts DC and 140 volts AC.

Users may operate these PXI multiplexers as conventional multiplexers with break-before-make action when a new channel is selected. In addition, users may select several channels simultaneously on the 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32-pole versions.

Users also can build large multiplexers by daisy-chaining the common signals from several PXI modules.

The product range is also supported by Pickering software and hardware tools. The company provides the eBIRST switching system test tools that provide a way of finding relay failures within the modules; and the Switch Path Manager for simplified signal routing through complex switching systems.

"These multiplexers offer a low-cost fixed configuration alternative to versatile solutions, making them simpler to program and it also improves isolation between banks," says Shaun Fuller, Pickering's switching product manager.

Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
