New ProDAQ 6140 Matrix Switching Unit supports signal levels up to 100V and 1A
The ProDAQ 6140’s relay matrix can be connected between the data acquisition and control system and the sensors and actuators on a device under test for easy monitoring, calibration and debugging without changing the system wiring.
It allows a user to separately connect and disconnect signals from either side and to connect them to an internal bus.
In this way, signals can be routed via the bus to new destinations or the bus can be used to monitor or supply test signals. This allows the calibration and debugging of a system without disconnecting and separating channels by changing the system wiring.
All switches are latching DPST type relays which keep their state even after power has been removed. High-density connectors with Low Force Helix contacts provide easy connections between the unit, the data acquisition system and the device under test. Monitor signals can be accessed via standard 4mm banana-style sockets on the front panel.
For scalability, the bus signals can be daisy-chained to additional ProDAQ 6140 units via D-Sub connectors on the rear panel. Furthermore, the ProDAQ 3202 Voltage Reference Plug-In can be installed in the unit and can be connected to either one of the four bus lines.
Finally, the ProDAQ 6140 LXI Matrix Switching Unit is a fully compliant LXI device supporting all LXI core functions via a Gigabit LAN interface as well as a number of LXI extended functions such as the LXI clock synchronization.
