The GX6115 is a 15 channel, high current relay board that plugs directly into any 3U PXI slot. The GX6115 also provides three transistor-driven channels for external relays. These outputs may be used to drive external loads, such as heavy duty relays, lamps or other devices.
The GX6115 offers 15 high current relays and three open collector relay drivers. The three open collector drivers are connected via diode to the same fly-back signal. The fly-back signal can be connected to the external relay supply to provide suppression for voltage spikes generateed by the relays’s coil.
Programming and Software
The board is supplied 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 adjust and control the instrument from a window that displays the current instrument settings and measurements. An On-Line help file and PDF User's Guide provides documentation that includes instructions for installing, using and programming the board.
