The GX6315 is a 45 channel, high current relay board that plugs directly into any 6U PXI slot. The GX6315 also provides nine transistor-driven channels for external relays. These outputs may be used to drive external loads, such as heavier duty relays, lamps or other devices.
The GX6315 consists of three groups: A, B, and C. Each group has 15 high current relays, three open collector relay drivers, and a 50-pin D type connector. The three open collector drivers in each group are connected via diodes to the same fly-back signal. The fly-back signal can be connected to the external relay supply to provide suppression for voltage spikes generated by the relays’ coils.
Programming and Software
The board is supplied with a 32-bit DLL driver. Various interface files provide access to the DLL from programming tools and languages such as ATEasy, LabVIEW, Microsoft® and Borland® C/C++, Microsoft Visual Basic®, Borland Delphi, and more. The available virtual panel can be used to interactively control the card from a window that displays the switch card's current settings and status.
An On-Line help file and PDF User's Guide provides documentation that includes instructions for installing, using and programming the board.
