Save rack space and simplify system design with modules featuring the
highest power density on the PXI platform
AUSTIN, Texas, May 20, 2013 /CNW/ - National Instruments (Nasdaq: NATI)
today announced its newest general-purpose programmable power supplies,
which offer the highest power density available in PXI and form the foundation of automated test systems. The NI PXIe-4112 and NI PXIe-4113 modules provide high power density that saves rack space while simplifying
design by eliminating the need to mix multiple instrumentation form
factors. When programmed with NI LabVIEW software and paired with a range of PXI hardware instrumentation, the
new power supplies can help engineers create a complete, customized
"With the capability of these new programmable power supplies, PXI
demonstrates yet again its unique value in building automated test and
benchtop validation systems," said Charles Schroeder, NI director of
test systems. "When engineers combine NI PXI hardware with LabVIEW,
they simplify their programming experience and quickly gain access to
the latest technology – all within a thriving ecosystem. Engineers
incorporating these latest technologies into their automated test
systems have technical and time-to-market advantages over those using
legacy box instrument approaches."
The new programmable power supplies are ideal for a range of
applications from aerospace and defense to automotive and component
test. These modules feature two 60 W power supply channels in a single
PXI Express slot. The NI PXIe-4112 power supply features 60 V at 1 A
per channel and the NI PXIe-4113 power supply offers 10 V at 6 A per
channel. The two channels can be combined to create a single 120 W
channel. To easily synchronize measurements, engineers can combine the
power supplies with more than 1,500 PXI modular instruments ranging
from digital multimeters to RF analyzers and generators, and simply
trigger the instruments across the PXI chassis backplane.
Engineers can quickly take measurements using soft front panels with an
interactive user interface or build fully automated applications using
the LabVIEW example programs that come with the power supplies. There
are example programs to perform voltage sweeps, source DC current and
source DC power. With seamless LabVIEW integration, engineers
dramatically reduce development time while improving system scalability
for a range of applications.
