18 slot PXI Express chassis boosts uptime

National Instruments has added an 18 slot PXI chassis to its product portfolio. The NI PXIe-1066DC adds high availability features to the PXI Express platform in order to maximise system uptime.

The chassis is said to bring critical component redundancy and remote monitoring functions. According to NI, these features improve the system level mean time before failure and mean time to repair of PXI systems in mission critical test, measurement and control applications.
"The NI PXIe-1066DC chassis builds on the long standing leadership of the PXI standard for mission critical projects," said Dr Tom Bradicich, R&D Fellow at National Instruments. "This new chassis illustrates NI's continued commitment to superior reliability, availability, serviceability and manageability when system uptime is paramount."
Amongst the product's features are: redundant hot swappable dc power supplies and fans; front accessible power supply; and an Ethernet port for remote in-band chassis health monitoring.
