The Keysight E1442A 64-Channel General-Purpose Switch is a C-size, 1-slot, register-based VXI module that contains nonlatching Form C type relays. They can be used for device actuation, as digital output modules, or to create flexible signal switching topologies.
Each product has two parts - a component card containing the relays, that plugs into the mainframe, and a removable terminal block that plugs onto the component card. The component card has 64 Form C relays with three independent axial component locations per relay. These locations can be used for jumpers, fuses, or pullup/down and protection resistors. All three relay terminals can be connected through such components to one of three internal buses.
The E1442A terminal block comes standard with solder lugs that allow full access to the Form C (SPDT) capability of the component module relays. Option 020 has a screw terminal block that allows access to the Form A (SPST) contacts only. Option 010 gives you complete Form C connectivity with more customization versatility.
