Six slot modular USB/LXI chassis increases test functionality in space-restricted applications

September 13, 2018 // By Nick Flaherty
Pickering Interfaces has launched a new six-slot modular USB/LXI chassis that occupies only a 1U rack-height form factor, making it suitable for portable and space-restricted rack-mount test applications.

The 60-106 chassis accepts from one to six Pickering PXI 3U modules; the user can choose from over 1000 module types including programmable resistors, matrices, multiplexers, general purpose relays, RF switches and fault insertion units.

“The small size will provide new functionality for test engineers," said Bob Stasonis, Director of Sales & Marketing at Pickering Interfaces. WPossible system configurations include switching matrices up to 3312 crosspoints (three 40-560 BRIC2 modules occupying three pairs of slots) or up to 108 channels of programmable resistor/sensor emulation (six 40-295 18-channel resistor modules occupying six slots). This allows the system to add the necessary switching and frees up the PXI/PXIe slots for instrumentation.”

The chassis is USB 3.0-compatible and features a fully compliant LXI interface with the option of using a Wi-Fi dongle (sold separately). Therefore, remote control via USB or LXI Ethernet is possible — chassis can be controlled through standard interfaces found on most personal computers and tablets that support HTML5.

All the manufactured products have a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support.
