53A-356 Relay Switching Card

53A-356 – Relay Switching card
53A-724 – Analog Cable. or
53A-780 – Hooded Connector

• Provides 8 independently controlled DPDT relays
• Sustains up to 100 switchings per second
• Individual relays may be randomly opened or closed, or all relays on the card may be opened or closed as a group
• Single-line thermal offset of less than 10 microvolts

The 53A-356 Relay Switching Card provides 8 independently controlled double-pole, double-throw relays which can sustain one hundred switchings per second while providing a minimum dwell time of four milli-seconds. Any relay may be randomly opened or closed by transmitting ASCII characters from the system controller. The maximum switching rate may be set at 100 operations per second, or at 20 operations per second for improved relay life in high current switching applications. All six wires of each relay are available at the front edge connector. Diagnostics are provided by LED indicators.

Eight LEDs provide Built-ln-Test Equipment (“BITE”). An individual LED will be lit when its corresponding relay is closed.

8 each DPDT relays brought out to front-edge connector as DPDT.
