  • PXI Single 6-Channel 30A Solid State MUX

    40-667-012 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    The 40-667 is a high current multiplexer available in dual 3-channel or single 6-channel configurations occupying two slots of PXI chassis. Each multiplexer switch uses a fully isolated solid state relay which has been designed to offer fast operation under hot switching conditions and high inrush current with no operational life degradation. Each multiplexer channel can support 30A of continuous current and switch up to 40V signals. The switches can sustain inrush currents in excess of 120A. AC or DC signals can be switched since the switch is polarity insensitive. Note: The 40-667-012 supersedes the 40-667-002 which is functionally the same but with some changes in specification.
