New models added to PXI Express Chassis

20 December 2010

National Instruments has added two new PXI Express chassis that are said to deliver added value and performance to automated test and control applications. They have been priced in line with similar PXI chassis.

Engineers can use the NI PXIe-1078 nine-slot and NI PXIe-1071 four-slot chassis to take advantage of the latest PXI Express modules and controllers with the flexibility of backward compatibility with existing PXI modules.

With the launch of the PXIe-1078 and PXIe-1071, NI now offers a total of 20 PXI and PXI Express chassis, delivering flexibility and value for engineers designing PXI systems.

The NI PXIe-1078 nine-slot chassis features 1 GB/sec total system bandwidth. It accepts up to a four-slot wide embedded controller in one slot and supports up to eight peripheral PXI Express slots with five slots compatible with both PXI Express and PXI modules. In addition to the benefits of a PXI Express chassis, the NI PXIe-1078 includes one more module slot than the same-priced NI PXI-1042 standard eight-slot PXI chassis. With a shallow depth of 214.2mm, the NI PXIe-1078 also delivers higher slot-counts to applications with tight space requirements.

The NI PXIe-1071 four-slot chassis offers 3 GB/sec total system bandwidth. It accepts up to a four-slot wide controller in one slot, with three slots available for either PXI Express or PXI modules. This chassis offers more than 20 times the bandwidth of the same priced NI PXI-1031 standard four-slot PXI chassis. Both chassis feature a compact form factor and temperature range of zero to 50 degrees Celsius.
