60-600, 60-552

Pickering Interfaces has expanded its range of LXI-compliant products with the introduction of two new matrix solutions.

The 60-600 is a high-current-capacity 256 relay crosspoint matrix with a 10A rating capable of switching voltages up to 30Vdc or 250Vac. The 60-600 can be supplied in a variety of matrix configurations from 64x4 to 16x16, one pole. The 60-600 is packaged in a compact full rack width 1U enclosure using 8-way high-power D-Type connectors for both the X- and Y-axis connections.

The 60-552 is a high-density 4096 relay crosspoint matrix with a 2A rating capable of switching voltages up to 220Vdc or 250Vac. The fully loaded version of the 60-552 is supplied as a 64x64 matrix, but partial x64 configurations are also available. Like the 60-600, the 60-552 is supplied in a compact 1U full rack width enclosure but uses 78-way D-Type connectors for the user connections. Loop thru connections are provided to simplify the creation of even larger matrices by using cabled connections between multiple 60-552 matrices.

These cables can be purchased from Pickering Interfaces.

"These matrices are part of our expanding range of large scale switching solutions available with LXI-compliant control interfaces," said David Owen, business development manager for Pickering Interfaces. "LXI is proving to be an ideal platform for Pickering Interfaces to develop large switching systems that suit a wide variety of application. The form factor of the units permits the creation of systems that are easy to configure and simple to program."

Pricing and availability information is available at the Pickering Interfaces Website.
