The 40-616 16-Bank, 5-Channel, 1-Pole Multiplexer Module is part of our range of reed-relay based switching solutions. The Module consists of 16 electrically isolated banks of multiplexers controlled by a PXI/ PCI interface. Each bank is a 1 to 5 multiplexer and operates with break-before-make action when a new channel is selected. Any Individual multiplexer bank can have a channel set by itself, alternatively, multiple banks can have channels selected simultaneously.
The module is suitable for cascading in applications that require large multiplexer systems, it is also suitable for test systems that require the switching of a large number of signals in parallel.
