Pickering Interfaces Introduces New High Density PXI BRIC

Clacton on Sea, UK - Pickering Interfaces is expanding its range of 2A BRIC matrices with the introduction of the 40-568.

The 40-568 is a high density multi-slot BRIC occupying 2, 4 or 8 slots of a PXI chassis and provides a range of 1 pole matrix solutions from 75x4 to 600x4, substantially increasing the density of 2A matrices compared to competing solutions.

The product range uses high quality electro-mechanical relays to achieve their 2A switch rating and 60W power capability to voltages up to 100VDC, 70VAC.

Pickering Interfaces BRIC structure allows the creation of large matrices in PXI over multiple slots without the use of expensive external cables. The fully integrated programming interface represents the matrix as a single entity, easing user programming and reducing the likelihood of user errors.

User connections are through industry standard 78 way D type connectors that are fully supported by Pickering Interfaces range of interconnection products.

The BRIC switching range was first introduced in 2002 and now includes many multi-slot PXI solutions using reed, solid state and electro-mechanical relays to suit a wide variety of switching applications. There are now 100s of different configurations available.
