Introduction
The U2751A USB modular switch matrix offers a high
quality, low cost switching solution for automated test. It can
operate as a standalone or modular unit when used with the
U2781A USB modular instrument chassis.
The U2751A is a compact 48, two-wire modular switch
matrix which is controlled remotely over a USB interface via
the Agilent Measurement Manager software. The U2751A can
also be programmed using the provided drivers or via SCPI
commands.
The U2751A has the following features.
• 32 two-wire cross-points organized in a 4 rows by 8
columns configuration
• any combination of rows and columns can be connected
at a time. Multiple channels can be closed at the same
time
• relay cycle counter
The U2751A offers you the most flexible connection path
between your device under test (DUT) and your test
equipment, allowing different instruments to be connected to
multiple points on your DUT at the same time.
Using the Agilent Measurement Manager, you can instruct
the matrix to make or break any of the 32 row-column
intersections over the USB interface. More details will be
covered in the Agilent Measurement Manager help file.

U2922A Terminal Block
The U2922A terminal block is an optional accessory to be
used with the U2751A. The U2922A which weighs
approximately 100 g and has screw-type terminals, offers you
a convenient and simple way of making connection to the
switch matrix for prototyping applications or an actual
system deployment. It allows the user to configure a wide
variety of routing options and matrix topologies.
The U2922A pin configuration is in accordance to the 25-pin
male DSub connector of the U2751A as shown in the
following:
R represents “Row” and C represents “Column”.
H represents “High” and L represents “Low”.
Figure 1-2 U2922A pin configuration
You may also develop your own terminal block by using a
compatible mating 25-pin female DSub connector to the front
panel.
NOTE
24
Ensure that your design meets the clearance and creepage requirements
for high voltage application as defined by IEC/EN 61010-1.

U2922A Terminal Block Installation
This section provides the recommended procedure for
connecting the U2922A terminal block to the U2751A.
• The maximum working voltage of the U2751A with the
terminal block for standalone is 35 Vrms and for
modular (when used with the U2781A) is 180 Vrms.
WA R N I N G
• The maximum transient voltage is 300 Vrms.
• Do not remove the retractable cover from the U2922A
terminal block during operation to avoid any
unexpected hazard.
NOTE
• You are required to connect the cables to the U2922A terminal block
prior to attaching the U2922A to the U2751A.
• Ensure that you power-off your device and unplug the U2922A from the
U2751A to change the cable connection on the U2922A.
Connect the cables to the terminal block as
desired.

Close your terminal block by slotting in the
retractable cover. Check the snap-fit clasp on
the cover and the housing to ensure correct
orientation of the retractable cover before
slotting it in.
Turn over the U2922A with the retractable
cover facing downwards. Then, insert the
U2922A to the U2751A as shown.
Tighten the jack screws using a screw driver
to secure the connection. Ensure that the
terminal block is installed correctly with the
screws properly tighten for secure operation.

Power Up
Take note of the following when you power up the U2751A.
• The U2751A can only be operated via the USB interface.
• Before you can control the U2751A, you need to install
the hardware driver and the IO Libraries Suite 14.2 or
higher. Both of these are included when you purchase the
U2751A. Refer to Chapter 1, “B. Install the IO Libraries
Suite” on page 11 and “C. Install the Module Driver” on
page 12 for the installation procedure.
• On the front panel of the U2751A, there are two LED
indicators. Refer to Chapter 1, “Product Outlook” on
page 3.
• Power indicator lights up once the U2751A is powered up.
• USB indicator will only blink when there is data exchange
activity between the U2751A and the PC.

Switch Control
A matrix switch connects multiple inputs to multiple
outputs. A matrix is arranged in rows and columns. For
example, the U2751A is a 48 matrix that can be used to
connect four sources to eight test points as shown in
Figure 2- 1.
Any column can be connected to any row by activating the
corresponding relay that connects the column to the row as
shown in Figure 2- 1. Each cross-point relay on this module
has its own unique channel label representing the row and
column. For example, channel 302 represents the cross-point
connection between row 3 and column 2.
Be aware that it is possible to connect more than one source
to the same point with a matrix. It is vital to make sure that
these connections do not create dangerous or unwanted
conditions.
Note: Three-digit channel numbers are derived from
the intersection of the rows and columns, with the
last two digits representing the columns. The
intersection shown represents channel 202

Checking Defective Relay(s)
NOTE
It is recommended to have the relay(s) checked when it reaches 10 million
cycle counts. The relay cycle count can be obtained by using the Agilent
Measurement Manager or sending the following SCPI command:
DIAGnostic:RELay:CYCLes? (@<ch_list>)
To check for any defective relay, the equipment required is a
digital multimeter with continuity feature.
1 Close the particular relay(s). For example: The relay
located at Row x Column y.
2 By referring to the connector configuration of the DSub
connector, connect one of the DMM test leads to pin RxL
and another test lead to pin CyL. The DMM should
indicate that these two pins are connected or shorted.
3 Once this is done, use the same method and perform the
same test on pins RxH and CyH. These two pins should
be connected or shorted as well.
4 Now, open the particular relay(s). Using the same method,
check if pins RxL and CyL are disconnected. Perform the
same test on pins RxH and CyH as well.

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Precautions
Almost all electrical components can be damaged by electrostatic
discharge (ESD) during handling. The following guidelines will help
prevent ESD damage when servicing the instrument or any electronic
device.
• Disassemble the instruments in a static-free work area only.
• Use a conductive work area to dissipate static charge.
• Use a conductive wrist strap to dissipate static charge
accumulation.
• Minimize handling.
• Keep the replacement parts in original static-free packaging.
• Remove all plastics, styrofoams, vinyls, papers, and other
static-generating materials from the immediate work area.
• Use only antistatic solder extractor.
