Clacton on Sea, United KingdomPickering Interfaces is expanding its range of PXI switch matrix products with a solid-state switching version of BRIC, the 40-563.
The solid state matrix is available in 2, 4 and 8 slot BRICs. These solid state matrices are suitable for applications requiring hot switching since the FET-based switches can sustain short term inrush currents and full load operation without any degradation in operational life.
The 40-563 solid-state switches have a continuous current rating of 0.25 A and can sustain inrush currents of 0.75-A for 100 ms. The switches ensure fast rise and fall times of typically 20 ms without contact bounce.
Each switch has a typical on resistance of 0.8 ohms, providing a typical path resistance of less than 2.5 ohms between X axis connections.
The 40-563 is available in matrix sizes from 64x8 to 384x8. Other
configurations can be supplied on request.
