‘When you cannot measure… your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind’. Lord Kelvin
We continue looking into the need, specifications and now usage of test equipment by looking at 6Ps (Precision, Power, Performance) - (Productivity, Portability, Package). Here, we close by looking at ‘Package’ and touch upon the heated debate between stand-alone instrumentation and modular systems.
The package is the totality of your purchase
PXI is a rugged platform for test, measurement, and control. The measurement hardware is housed in an industrial chassis and has a host computer either embedded in the chassis or connected to a PC through a cabled interface. Benefits specific to PXI include increased channel count, portability, and integrated timing and synchronisation.
