Power Switch Channels (AMXR)

Universal Digitally Controlled Analog Switches/Multiplexers

Power switch channels (19" plug-in modules) for modular switch system AMXR

General Technical Data for all Power Switch Channels


  • Digitally controlled, galvanically isolated electronic analog switches


  • Maximum operating voltages: up to 1.5 kV
  • High-voltage isolation (option H) available for all voltages
  • Polarity selection: slide switch(es) inside the module
  • Indicator: multicolor LED
    • Red = output positive, blue = output negative
    • Three-level switches only: green = output middle


  • Control inputs (Sockets In): BNC sockets (LEMO optional)
    • Dual-level switches: 1 control input
    • Three-level switches: 2 control inputs
  • Input level: TTL
  • Switch terminals: SHV sockets, galvanically isolated
    • Dual-level switches: 3 switch terminals
    • Three-level switches: 4 switch terminals


  • 19" plug-in modules
  • Height: 3 U
  • Width: dependent on voltage, switch type and cooling option, starting from 12 HP = 2 slots

Equivalent Circuits

Dual-level switch:

  • Equivalent circuit of one two-level channel
  • Vneg ≤ Vout ≤ Vpos must be fulfilled at all times (even when the switch is deactivated)

Three-level switch:

  • Equivalent circuit of one three-level channel
  • Vneg ≤ Vout ≤ Vpos and Vneg ≤ Vmid ≤ Vpos must be fulfilled at all times (even when the switch is deactivated)
When a channel is deactivated, all relay contacts are opened. The dual-level switch therefore has 3 and the three-level switch has 4 possible states.
