Overview

Important! - This module has been updated - the updated version, 40-140A, is not pin compatible with the earlier 40-140. Pin out data for 40-140 can be found in the 40-140A manual. 

This range of high density switching modules are available in Normally Open (SPST & DPST) and changeover (SPDT) configurations. Connections are made via a front panel 200 pin female connector. 
General purpose reed relays are suitable for the construction of small switching networks, for slaving up to larger switches or for operating external devices (e.g. lamps, solenoids etc.).

For applications requiring improved bandwidth and crosstalk performance please look at the 40-142 shielded reed relay card
