EX1200-2008H 30-CHANNEL 3 (1 X 10) HIGH-VOLTAGE MULTIPLEXER
- High-density, high-voltage multiplexer/scanner (1×180 in 1U size)
- Ideal for hipot, cable breakdown, source measure unit and power supply switching
- Extensive signal shielding employed on-board for excellent signal fidelity
- Break-before-make (BBM) and make-before-break (MBB) accomplished in hardware, considerably improving scanning time
- Fail-safe interrupts can detect fault conditions and automatically open up relays to a default state
The EX1200-2008H is a high-voltage multiplexer module designed for electrical safety testing, insulation testing kind of applications whose voltage levels exceed standard 300 V level. EX1200-2008H can switch voltages up to 1000 V, at power levels up to 25 VA. Each card contains three banks of 10×1 multiplexers.
The EX1200-2008H has been designed for applications requiring high-voltage signal switching. When switching high voltages, the need for signal shielding becomes critical. This module has been designed to include large shield planes to reduce crosstalk and voltage spikes to adjacent channels.
For ATE applications, such as switching high-voltage source measure units or power supplies, a fail-safe interrupt line (TTL-logic) is provided on the front panel. A change in state on this input pin can be used to create a fault condition and force all relays to their open state. This approach provides an additional layer of safety in the event that an adapter is removed by a technician while voltage is still present at the interface panel.
