ADLINK Introduces 3U 8-Slot PXI Chassis with Smart Management

ADLINK Technology Inc. releases two new 8-slot 3U PXI chassis: the PXIS-2558T (with 8.4″ LCD touch panel screen) and the PXIS-2508 (without LCD). These chassis feature one system and seven peripheral slots, smart chassis status monitoring and control, an operating temperature of 0-131°F, a quiet 41.6 dBA operating noise level, and a lightweight 13 lbs rigid construction for both bench-top and portable test & measurement applications.

ADLINK PXIS-2558T, PXIS-2508 3U 8-Slot PXI Chassis with Smart ManagementThe embedded chassis management board automatically regulates the speed of two 60 CFM fans based on the internal temperature of the chassis for an extended operating temperature range of 0-131°F while maintaining a low operating noise level of 41.6 dBA at room temperature. Fan speed, chassis temperature, and system voltage are continually self-monitored to ensure system stability. These chassis also support remote management from a remote system via a standard RS-232 port connection. Simple software commands can then be used to read chassis status and control on/off power.

The PXIS-2558T provides the same features as the PXIS-2508, but with the addition of an integrated 8.4″, 800×600 resolution LCD touch panel display for greater convenience in carrying out PXI-based tests at any location.

Both these chassis feature a lightweight rigid mechanical construction composed of an aluminum inner frame and metal outer shell. This feature makes PXIS-2508 and PXIS-2558T ideal for the testing applications requiring high portability.

Combine either of these chassis with any of the variety of PXI system controllers, instrument boards, data acquisition modules, and I/O boards from ADLINK for a complete test system ideal for a wide range of applications.

Price and Availability
The PXIS-2508 and PXIS-2558T are competitively priced starting at $1895 and are available with discounts in volume.
