Preview for electronica 2014 – Munich, Germany – Hall A1, Booth 530electronica 2014

Pickering Interfaces will be showcasing their latest LXI and PXI switching solutions at electronica 2014 in Munich, Germany, these products include:

The new PXI Signal Insertion and Monitor Matrix (40-525A) – 32x4 signal insertion and monitor matrix with switched loop-thru for simplified connection of digital I/O.

The Updated PXI Large Matrix BRIC Update (40-565B) – now with 20% density improvement over previous models, these high-density large matrix modules are able to switch up to 2 Amps at 200VDC/140VAC.

The Updated PXI Microwave Multiplexer Update (40-785B) – now featuring LED indicators to aid in test system development and debugging, these are single or dual 6-channel multiplexers with relays mounted on the front panel. 

Pickering will also be showcasing in their booth, the soon to be released:  LXI High-Density Matrix (60-553) –
with scalable construction – matrix size from 384x4 to 1024x4 and up to 4096 crosspoints in 1U.

Along with these new products, Pickering will also be showing:

  • PXI High Power Relay Modules – These modules are suited for high power applications that exhibit currents ranging from 5 Amps to 40 Amps. Lower current versions require one 3U PXI slot; the highest current versions occupy two slots. These power relay modules are intended for switching heavy AC or DC loads or for controlling large external relays, contactors and solenoids. 

  • PXI RF Solid State 6 GHz Multiplexers (40-883) – these comprise an SP8T (8:1) MUX occupying two PXI slots and an SP16T (16:1) MUX occupying three PXI slots. Each version uses solid-state switches that ensure fast switch operation time of 50µs, very repeatable performance, and an indefinite service life when used within ratings.

  • PXI Microwave Multiplexer (40-784A) – support single, dual, or triple SP4T or SP6T relays and are available in a variety of different frequency options for 50 Ω, from 6GHz to 40GHz. All models occupy just two 3U PXI slots and feature LED’s that indicate which path of the multiplexer is closed.

  • LXI Modular Chassis – these chassis provide an easy way of supporting Pickering’s 3U PXI modules in an Ethernet-based LXI control environment. All of their PXI switching products are supported along with simulators such as resistor modules and battery emulators; the majority of their PXI instruments and power supply products are also supported.
Pickering Interfaces stands behind all of their manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
