Astronics Test Systems Introduces New PXI Integration Platform New Configurable Platform Gives Companies a Head Start on PXI System Development



Astronics Test Systems announced a new concept in PXI system development: the ATS-3100 PXI Integration Platform. The new ATS-3100 provides a starter “system-in-a-box” for engineers to rapidly create and configure new test, measurement, or other systems based on PXI, a versatile PC-based platform for measurement and automation systems.

The ATS-3100 PXI Integration Platform saves engineers time, complexity, and non-recurring engineering (NRE) costs in developing next-generation PXI-based systems. Engineers can start with the basic set of technologies and focus time and energy on building final, polished solutions for any variety of applications such as testing, measuring, stimulating, computing, and monitoring.

The ATS-3100 serves as a building block for desktop or rack-mount test systems in R&D and manufacturing environments. Containing all of the elements needed to jump start system development, the ATS-3100 features:
• 18-slot hybrid PXI/PXI Express chassis
• The latest NI backplane technology
• Reconfigurable front and rear panels for customer defined I/O for a variety of applications
• Internal cable and connection management
• Large touchscreen display
• Controller
• Mechanical packaging
• Compatibility with TestStand or LabVIEW software from NI

The ATS-3100 is a modular system, and engineers can integrate instruments from any vendor or specify instruments from Astronics Test Systems in their configuration. Available PXI instruments from Astronics include a digitizer, pulse pattern generator, waveform generator, frequency time and interval counter, rubidium, and digital test instrument. The configurable platform also “future proofs” finished test systems with the ability to upgrade instruments and software at any time.

In addition to a standalone package, Astronics Test Systems will also offer the ATS-3100 PXI Integration Platform as part of a turnkey solution in which Astronics can provide the instruments and customization to create an entire system to customer requirements.
