Geotest Introduces Customizable PXI Switching and Control Card

February 15, 2013. Responding to users’ requests for a switching/control card that can be customized for specific applications, Geotest-Marvin Test Systems 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 five interboard connectors that 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 that includes a virtual-instrument panel and Windows 32/64-bit driver libraries for ATEasy, LabVIEW, C/C++, Microsoft Visual Basic, Linux 32/64, Delphi, and Pascal. Price is $3,409.
