Astronics / EADS / Racal 1260-100 / 1260-101 Modular VXIbus Switch Carrier

  • Easy Access, Front-loading Switch Modules
  • Analog Bus Expands Matrices or Multiplexers
  • Modular Package Allows up to 50% More Switching
  • Accepts Six Adapt-a-Switch Plug-Ins
  • EMI/RFI Shields Between Plug-Ins
  • Two-slot, C-Size VXIbus


The Adapt-a-Switch platform is a revolutionary, modular switch system that delivers unprecedented density and flexibility in a two-slot, C-size, VXIbus module. The 1260-100 Switch Carrier accommodates up to six plug-in switch cards, providing optimum switching solutions while reducing the ATE size requirements. Configurations combining discrete relays, multiplexers, matrices, power relays, RF switches, and digital test units are currently available. An ever expanding range of plug-in switch cards ensures that Adapt-a-Switch will continue to be the solution for future test requirements.

To simplify configuration, the Adapt-a-Switch plug-ins are inserted easily and directly from the front panel of the 1260-100, without removing the carrier module from the VXIbus chassis. Field upgrades or modifications can be accomplished quickly and easily. In addition, sparing can be done at the individual plug-in level, minimizing the cost of system support.

The 1260-100 provides an analog bus to interconnect two or more plug-ins. This enables large multiplexers and matrices to be dynamically configured via software control. EMI/RFI shields eliminate crosstalk and radiation between plug-ins, ensuring low-noise performance and signal integrity.

The Option 01T interface, housed in the 1260-100 can control twelve Adapt-a-Switch plug-in cards, using both register-based and message based modes. Refer to the Option 01T data sheet for specifications and product features.

The 1260-100 includes VXI plug and play support for WIN96/NT frameworks, including drivers for LabWindows/CVI and LabVIEW.
