PXI/PXIe 16x8 2A 2-Pole High Density Matrix Module - 40-588-212

PXI/PXIe 16x8 2A 2-Pole High Density Matrix Module - 40-588-212

The 40-588-222 is a high density 32x8 2-pole PXI matrix module capable of switching up to 2 A at 220 VDC/250 VAC. The module is in 2-slot format and is constructed using quality electromechanical relays for high switching confidence. A smaller 16x8 2-pole version is also available.

The matrix has been optimised for applications that require high signal bandwidth. With careful matrix design and the use of isolation switching, the 40-588 has a bandwidth in the range of 35 MHz to 70 MHz depending upon path selected.

High Reliability and Ease of Use

The 40/42-588 matrix is formed from two 16x8 matrix daughter cards with their Y-connections linked via an internal analog bus. This is designed to minimize the cost and complexity of interconnecting cable assemblies.

Isolation Switching 

The 40/42-588 daughter cards are fitted with isolation switches between the matrix Y-bus and the interconnecting analog bus. These ensure that only the required Y signal is routed to the front panel connector helping to preserve the bandwidth and crosstalk performance.
