Pickering Interfaces has extended its line-up of 16A PXI switching solutions. The latest devices from the company boast hot switching up to 16A at 28VDC and maximum DC hot switch rating of 300VDC.

The 16A PXI power multiplexer (model 40-662) is available in seven configurations ranging from 4-off 2:1 multiplexers to 1-off 16:1 multiplexer. The 16A PXI power matrix (model 40-552) is available in four configurations with matrix sizes of 8x2 and 4x4 and the ability to expand the matrix size with the Y-Axis loop-thru connections. For example, 8x4, 12x4, 16x4, etc. (with 4x4 matrices) or 16x2, 24x2, 32x2, etc. (with 8x2 matrices).

According to the company, the devices feature hot switching AC signals up to 250VAC at 16A and are capable of withstanding 400VDC for cold switching. In addition, the PXI switching solutions flaunt high-quality high power electro-mechanical relays and 20-way GMCT connectors.

Careful attention to the switching designs ensures that all of these PXI modules can carry the full 16A current on each path simultaneously over the complete operating temperature range.

Applications include electric vehicles, automotive ECU testing, AC mains switching, high current power supplies, load switching, and aerospace electric drive testing.

Pickering Interfaces also provides a full range of supporting cable and connector solutions for all of their LXI, PCI and PXI switching solutions, including the 16A PXI switching family. They can also manufacture cable assemblies to custom requirements.
