Modular Signal Switches AMXR
Universal Digitally Controlled Analog Switches/Multiplexers

This is the modular version of our signal switches. If you only require up to 4 channels and do not plan to make any changes to the setup later, you may also be interested in our preconfigured or customized compact signal switches AMXT.

About AMXR

These signal switches combine several digitally controlled electronic analog switches in a single device. The modular design allows for adding or replacing components later.

The switches can be manufactured with up to 5, 12 or 24 switch channels, depending on the base unit. Each channel is a digitally controlled electronic analog switch for which the user can specify the switchable voltage.

The function of each switch channel corresponds to a conventional electromechanical relay, but the switching times are in the nanosecond range and the digital control inputs have a high input impedance. Similarly to an electromechanical relay, the control inputs are galvanically isolated from the signal lines.

Applications

  • Designed for driving small loads
  • Control of ion optics, e.g. entry or exit electrodes of ion traps, differential lenses, or BNGs (Bradbury-Nielsen gates)
  • Drivers of piezoelectric and electromagnetic valves or small motors
