The National Instruments PXI-2547 is an 8x1 high-frequency multiplexer switch module suited for routing signals from DC to 2.7 GHz in 50 Ω RF applications. It can switch up to 30 Vrms or 500 mA at a maximum power rating of 10 W. The higher channel-count of the NI PXI-2547 makes it ideal for test systems that require the switching of a large number of RF signals, such as switching several devices under test to a single channel on the RF analyzer. The module also features excellent insertion loss, voltage standing-wave ratio (VSWR), and isolation parameters to minimize signal degradation; and its onboard relay-count-tracking feature can be used to predict relay lifetime and reduce unexpected system downtime.
Note: The bandwidth specification of a switch module, which is not an absolute specification, is determined by vendor standards. Although higher frequency signals can be routed through this switch module, they will encounter more degradation than those at lower frequencies. In order to determine the best switch module for your application, review the insertion loss, VSWR, and isolation specifications of the product for the bandwidth of your application. For more information on choosing the right RF switch for your application, review the ‘Guide to Selecting an RF Switch’ linked in the 'Resources' section of this page.

Add More Measurements and I/O Modules Use the PXI Advisor to choose from a variety of modules including analog I/O, digital I/O, switching and more. Then, complete and price the PXI System.
Preview a Complete System View and price a complete PXI configuration including the NI PXI-2547, chassis, and controller. Starting from the default configuration, you can add modules, accessories, and software and customize your system.
The chassis provides rugged, modular housing for the controller and modules and contains the high-performance PXI backplane, which includes the system's data, timing, and triggering buses.
The controller runs your application and interfaces with your PXI modules.
You need software to interface with your hardware and to collect, analyze, present, and store your measurements. This board is compatible with a variety of programming languages, including LabVIEW, C/C++, Visual Basic, and .NET. LabVIEW provides the easiest integration with all of your NI hardware and is recommended to maximize your hardware investment.

Courtesy installation of system driver sets and application development environments
Extended warranty and calibration coverage for up to five years
Custom documentation plus a custom restore and startup utility
This service is only available for PXI, NI CompactRIO, and NI Compact FieldPoint systems.
National Instruments designs and manufactures all products to minimize failures, however unexpected failures can still occur. Extended warranties provide a fixed economical price at the time of system purchase, covering any repair costs for up to three years. In addition, they offer the following benefits:
Significant cost savings compared to individual repair incidents
Fault location, diagnostics, and repair by NI any time the system product fails
All parts and labor costs covered as well as any adjustments needed to restore the hardware to manufacturing specifications
NI recognizes the need to maintain properly calibrated devices for high-accuracy measurements. NI provides manual calibration procedures, services to recalibrate your products, and automated calibration software to calibrate many NI measurement products.
Return your registered product under warranty at no additional labor and parts cost. NI offers fault location, diagnostics, and repair any time the system fails as well as any adjustments needed to restore the hardware to manufacturing specifications.
