AMETEK Programmable Power has added LXI compliance to most of its California Instruments ac-dc power sources. LXI is a widely adopted industry standard for LAN/Ethernet connectivity among various instrument manufacturers in order to create high-speed, high channel-count or remote measurement systems using standard Ethernet interfaces.
Herman van Eijkelenburg, Director of Product Marketing for AMETEK Programmable Power, notes, "This upgrade to our California Instruments products allows our customers to easily connect, configure and control these power sources wherever they are located - benchtop, network, or in distributed or remote locations. In addition, they can be easily integrated with other LXI instruments to create multifunction automated test equipment (ATE) systems that are highly efficient and flexible. While other power source manufacturers may offer selected products with LXI capabilities, the California Instruments product line is one of the few to offer an LXI interface option on a wide variety of models."
