The NI TB-2643 terminal block creates a 2-wire 4×64 matrix topology with the NI PXI/PXIe-2532 (NI 2532). The NI TB-2643B terminal block creates a 2-wire 4×64 matrix topology with the NI PXI/PXIe-2532B (NI 2532B). The following figure represents the NI 2532/2532B in the 2-wire 4×64 matrix topology.

Making a Connection

Both the scanning command, r2->c1;, and the immediate operation, niSwitch Connect Channels VI or the niSwitch_Connect function with parameters r2 and c1, result in the following connections:

signal connected to R2+ is routed to C1+

signal connected to R2– is routed to C1–

Terminal Block Connections

The NI TB-2643 terminal block connects banks of the NI 2532 to create the 2-wire 4×64 matrix topology. The NI TB-2643B terminal block connects banks of the NI 2532B to create the 2-wire 4×64 matrix topology. The following figure illustrates how the native banks of the NI 2532/2532B connect using the NI TB-2643/2643B to create the 2-wire 4×64 matrix topology.

Row Pin Connections

The NI TB-2643 and NI TB-2643B 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.

Pin Number Row
1 R0+
2 R0–
3 R1+
4 R1–
5 R2+
6 R2–
7 R3+
8 R3–
9–16

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.
