The National Instruments PXI-2534 high-density solid-state relay (SSR) matrix module features 256 crosspoints in a compact, single-slot, 3U PXI form factor. The NI PXI-2534 is configured as a 8x32 one-wire matrix. Because the module uses SSR technology, it offers unique benefits such as unlimited mechanical lifetime and the ability to route 55 W simultaneously on all channels (unlimited simultaneous connections). These features make the PXI-2534 ideal for routing general-purpose signals in high-density matrix applications.

Connecting Signals to the PXI-2534
The PXI-2534 breaks out switch connections into a single 68-pin SCSI connector. You can connect signals to the PXI-2534 using the NI TB-2637 front-mounting terminal block. For remote connectivity, you can use the NI SH68-68S cable, which connects to a remote, DIN-rail-mountable terminal block (NI TBX-68). Both methods provide screw-terminal connectivity.

NI Switch Executive Switch Management Software
NI Switch Executive is an intelligent switch management and routing application. With NI Switch Executive, you gain increased development productivity by interactively configuring and naming switch modules, external connections, and signal routes. You also increase test code reuse and system performance with switch programming in conjunction with NI TestStand, LabVIEW, and Measurement Studio. These features are especially important when using high-density switch modules such as the PXI-2534. Ultimately, NI Switch Executive simplifies switch system configuration and increases test performance, lowering your cost to test.
