The National Instruments SCXI-1160 is a general-purpose switching module consisting of 16 independent SPDT (also called Form C) latching relays with very low on-resistance and low thermal offset. With power capabilities of up to 2 A at 250 Vrms or 30 VDC, these relays are suitable for switching, routing, and controlling medium-level signals. Each channel has a normally closed (NC), normally open (NO), and common (COM) terminal. You can use two or more SCXI-1160s in the same chassis with a single DAQ device or switch controller. The DAQ device controls these SCXI modules through serial communication over the SCXIbus in the backplane of an SCXI chassis. The NI 4021 switch controller or the NI 4070/4060 DMMs control these SCXI modules via the SCXI-1362 cable assembly.
