The NI TB-2642 terminal block creates a 1-wire 16×32 matrix topology with the NI PXI/PXIe-2532 (NI 2532). The NI TB-2642B terminal block creates a 1-wire 16×32 matrix topology with the NI PXI/PXIe-2532B (NI 2532B). The following figure represents the NI 2532/2532B in the 1-wire 16×32 matrix topology.

Making a Connection

Both the scanning command, r1->c1;, and the immediate operation, niSwitch Connect Channels VI or the niSwitch_Connect function with parameters r1 and c1, result in the following connection:

signal connected to R1 is routed to C1

Terminal Block Connections

The NI TB-2642 terminal block connects banks of the NI 2532 to create the 1-wire 16×32 matrix topology. The NI TB-2642B terminal block connects banks of the NI 2532B to create the 1-wire 16×32 matrix topology. The following figure illustrates how the native banks of the NI 2532/2532B connect using the NI TB-2642/2642B to create the 1-wire 16×32 matrix topology.

Bank Connection Diagram

The following table lists the pin assignments for the NI TB-2642/2642B column ribbon cable headers.

Column Pin Connections

The following table refers to the J3 connector on the NI TB-2642 column connection board and the J13 connector on the NI TB-2642B.

Pin 8 C7 Pin 16 C15 Pin 24 C23 Pin 32 C31
Note  The column connection board J2 connector on the NI TB-2642 is not used in this configuration.

Row Pin Connections

The NI TB-2642 and NI TB-2642B provide two ribbon cable headers for row connection. Use one cable header to connect to your application. Use the other cable header for column expansion.

The following table lists the pin assignments for row connection.

Row Protection Bypass Header

Each row signal is isolated from the reed relays through a 100 Ω resistor. To bypass this resistor, install a jumper on the appropriate pins of the header indicated in the table below. The following table lists the appropriate jumper position for bypassing the resistor on each row signal.
