Pickering Interfaces is expanding its range of LXI-compliant switching products with the introduction of the 60-310 high voltage matrix and the 60-510 LXI low thermal EMF matrix.

The 60-310 is a high voltage 300 X 2 two-pole switching matrix capable of hot switching 500Vdc signals and cold switching 1,000Vdc signals. The matrix is contained within a compact 2U full rack width enclosure. The 60-310 is well-suited for insulation tests on cable harnesses and PCBs and for testing for breakdown voltages of semiconductor devices and relays, said Pickering Interfaces. The design uses Rhodium-plated reed relays that are optimized for high voltage switching applications requiring a long service life.

The 60-510 is a low thermal EMF 56x33 matrix capable of switching 150Vdc signals with carry current up to 1A. The matrix is contained within a compact 2U full rack width enclosure. The matrix uses instrument-grade Ruthenium sputtered relays to ensure a very long service life with very good low level switching performance and ultrastable contact resistance stability, while typically providing less than 2.5mV of thermal EMF.

Both products are supplied with IVI, SOAP and Direct I/O drivers and soft front panels that allow them to be controlled through any W3C compliant Web browser.

The products are available now.
