Pickering Interfaces has released a single pole power multiplexer module that is designed for switching loads up to 10A and is available in several configurations ranging from 8 off 4:1 to 1 off 32:1.

The 40-661 is capable of 125VDC/250VAC hot switching and 400VDC/250VAC cold switching. It is offered in the following formats: 8-bank 4-channel, 5-bank 6-channel, 4-bank 8-channel, 2-bank 16-channel and 1-bank 32-channel, in addition to the 4-bank 4-channel, 2-bank 8-channel and 1-bank 16-channel half density configurations.

The multiplexer uses high quality high power electromechanical relays and user signals are carried on 20 way GMCT connectors. Options for partially loaded configurations are available to minimise user cost for smaller test system applications.

Careful attention to the switch designs ensures that all multiplexers can carry the full 10A current simultaneously over the full operating temperature range.

The company also provides a full range of supporting cable and connector solutions for the 10A power multiplexer, enabling custom cable solutions to suit every requirement.
