|National Instruments Announces Its First-Ever Six-Slot PXI Chassis for
Low-Cost Remote Control Applications|
Engineers now can use the first-ever National Instruments
six-slot PXI chassis for low-cost remote control and portable real-time control. For remote control, a PC, server or
workstation controls the PXI chassis through MXI-Express, a transparent PCI Express-to-PCI bridge. Engineers also
can use MXI-4 for traditional remote control of PXI.
To reduce the
initial PXI setup cost by 44 percent per slot (compared to a PXI-1031 chassis and MXI-4 kit), engineers can combine
the new NI PXI-1036 chassis with a MXI-Express remote controller kit. With this low-cost PXI entry point, engineers
can control up to five modular instrument or data acquisition modules across a remote link that offers 110 MB/s of
sustained analog bandwidth – a more than 40 percent increase compared to MXI-4 PCI remote control of PXI. The NI
PXI-1036 chassis works with all National Instruments remote controllers and two-slot wide PXI/CompactPCI
controllers, such as the NI PXI-8145, for portable real-time control.
The new chassis increases the number
of slots available for measurement modules from three in the NI PXI-1031 chassis to five. With the same dimensions
as the existing four-slot portable system, the NI PXI-1036 chassis adds two slots for PXI/CompactPCI devices by
reducing the width of the supported embedded controller. The compact, rugged and portable chassis weighs less than
12 pounds and has a small footprint for portability. It features operating temperature range of 0 to 50 °C, and
additional shock and vibration of 30 g. The PXI-1036 DC chassis offers a combined AC and DC power supply.
The NI PXI-1036 chassis works seamlessly with a variety of NI software including the LabVIEW
graphical development environment, NI TestStand test management software, LabWindows/CVI ANSI C development
environment and SignalExpress interactive measurement environment. It also works with all PXI and CompactPCI
instruments, including modular instruments and data acquisition devices.
eXtensions for Instrumentation (PXI) is an open specification governed by the PXI Systems Alliance (www.pxisa.org)
that defines a rugged, CompactPCI-based platform optimized for test, measurement and control. It is supported by
more than 65 member companies and more than 1,150 products are available. PXI products are compatible with the
CompactPCI industrial computer standard and offer additional features such as environmental specifications,
standardized software and built-in timing and synchronization.
