Pickering Interfaces Introduces a New Range of PXI Switching Modules available to the Chinese market.

Oct 28, 2013

Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of signal switching and conditioning solutions, is pleased to introduce a new range of PXI switching modules specifically addressing the Chinese market.

The introduction initially comprises four PXI switching modules (the PA8 family):

  • PXI General Purpose 2Amp Relays (PA8131) - features up to 26 SPDT general purpose relays
  • PXI EMR Multiplexer (PA8528) - a 64-pin 2Amp multiplexer comprising three configurations
  • PXI EMR Matrix (PA8528) - a 1-Pole 32x4 high density matrix
  • PXI RF Multiplexer - a 50Ω RF Multiplexer with 2.5GHz bandwidth

We are pleased to address the popular requirements in China with solutions that offer a lower cost entry into PXI, are available on shorter lead times and feature localized documentation,” comments Shaun Fuller, East Asian Market Development for Pickering Interfaces. “In addition to these user benefits, we of course remain fully committed to providing the same high quality as our standard range of PXI switching products.”

These new PXI switching modules have a robust design; all models occupy just a single PXI slot and are fully compatible with any PXI chassis and hybrid slots in PXIe chassis. For users preferring control via an Ethernet port, this new range can be used in Pickering’s LXI modular chassis and comprise driver support for all major programming environments, just as  Pickering’s standard PXI modules do.

User connections are provided by industry standard D-Type or SMB connectors and are supported by the comprehensive range of connection solutions available from Pickering Interfaces.

Further information is available on Pickering Asia’s new web site at www.pickeringtest.asia.
