Agilent E1460A 64 channel E1460 multiplexer

E1460A Description

The Agilent E1460A High-Density Relay Multiplexer is a C-size, 1-slot, register-based VXI module. This 64-channel multiplexer, using latching armature switches, offers a highly configurable, high point-count switching topology. Switching topologies include 64 two-wire, 32 threewire, 32 four-wire, or 128 single-ended latching relay channels. This multiplexer consists of a component card with switches (labeled E1460-66202) and the QUIC screw terminal block (E1460-80011) that plugs onto the component card. Use of SCPI commands or status bit jumpers on the terminal card configures the E1460A “wire mode” as either a 128×1- wire, 64×2-wire, 32×3-wire, or 32×4-wire multiplexer.

• 1-Slot, C-size, register based
• Armature latching relay channels
• Configuration for testing insulation
• Includes QUIC easy-to-use terminal block
• Numerous multiplexer topologies
• Configurable for scanning voltmeter applications


E1460A Configuration

The switch consists of eight banks of eight Hi and Lo switches, each bank having its own eight Hi and Lo common. There are seven programmable control switches and six sets of wire jumpers. These wire jumpers allow all bank commons to produce either eight 1×8 two-wire multiplexers, four 1×8 two-wire multiplexers, and two 1×16 two-wire multiplexers, or four 1×16 two-wire multiplexers. Other switching topologies are also possible. One 2.5-in analog bus cable (E1400-61605) is included to connect the analog buses of multiple slot-adjacent E1460A modules or a slot-adjacent E1411B multimeter module.

The analog bus cable, easily installed at the faceplate of the component card, lets you connect the E1460A with the E1411B DMM. Using SCPI commands sent to the E1411B, you can close channels configured as two-wire, three-wire, or four-wire in the E1460A. It is possible (but less convenient) to connect the analog bus by attaching your own wiring to the E1460A and E1411B screw terminals. The E1460A User Manual contains configuration and programming examples for one-wire through four-wire switching modes, cable test, switchbox, scanning, triggering, and scanning with an external multimeter.
