Pickering Interfaces Expands its PXI Solid State Matrix Solutions

Mar 18, 2013

Pickering Interfaces is expanding its range of solid state PXI matrices with the introduction of the 40-501,a single slot 3U PXI module providing a high voltage 64x4 solid state matrix.

The solid state relays used in 40-501 are rated to 100V with 150mA hot switch capability and the ability to withstand 350mA surges for 10ms on relay closure or during normal operation. This makes the module ideal for applications requiring frequent hot switching of high voltages carried on capacitive cables that might result in a limited operating life when using alternatives based on mechanical relays. The switching life is unlimited while used within ratings and the operating speed is comparable with reed relay solutions making it ideal for high volume tests where speed of operation is important.

The 40-501 is functionally and pin layout equivalent to 40-500 (a solid state 60V 500mA matrix), allowing users to choose the most appropriate solution for their application without connection or software changes.
