Power Switch

The new power switch module allows you to switch power to any other hardware remotely. The board can be equipped with both our standard power connectors and each channel is able to stand 50 V or 50 W or 5 A, whatever is reached first. Remote control is possible via USB or any available UART connection, for example via TrbNet and FPGA on a TRB3. The boards can be cascaded to "any" number of channels on a single control interface, as long as the power consumption of the board itself can be met. Features include current measurement on each output and programmable over current protection thresholds.

A brief documentation exists.
