Geotest-Marvin Test Systems Introduces Customizable Switching and PXI Control Card

GX6196 offers 96, DPST 2A relays, 8 digital I/O lines, and a serial digital interface for creating custom relay configurations and control interfaces.

Irvine, Calif. (February 13, 2013) – Responding to users’ requests for a switching / control card which can be customized  for specific applications, Geotest has introduced the GX6196, a 6U PXI switch and control board that can be used to create custom switching, signal conditioning, or custom control interfaces.  

All switching and control resources are available via (5) inter-board connectors which interface to the user defined daughter / mezzanine board. The mezzanine board provides all connections to the unit under test (UUT) via two 78 pin D-sub connectors. By providing access and control to all 96 relays, users have the option to create custom relay configurations, custom switched load board configurations or even custom interface circuitry controlled by the module’s software function calls. The GX6196 is supplied with a software package which includes a virtual instrument panel and Windows 32/64-bit driver libraries for ATEasy, LabView, LabView/Real-Time, C/C++, Microsoft Visual Basic®, Linux 32/64, Delphi, and Pascal.
