The NI TB-2646B terminal block creates a 2-wire dual 4×32 matrix topology with the NI PXI/PXIe-2532B (NI 2532B). The following figure represents the NI 2532/2532B in the 2-wire dual 4×32 matrix topology.

Making a Connection

Both the scanning command, b0r2->b0c1;, and the immediate operation, niSwitch Connect Channels VI or the niSwitch_Connect function with parameters b0r2 and b0c1, result in the following connections:

signal connected to B0R2+ is routed to B0C1+

signal connected to B0R2– is routed to B0C1–

Note Note   While you can, for example, connect B0R1 to B0C0, you cannot connect B0R1 directly to B1C1 in this topology.

Terminal Block Connections

The NI TB-2646B terminal block connects banks of the NI 2532B to create the 2-wire dual 4×32 matrix topology. The following figure illustrates how the native banks of the NI 2532B connect using the NI TB-2646B to create the 2-wire dual 4×32 matrix topology.

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.
