Pickering expands range of LXI compliant switching products
Sep 28, 2007
The 60-760 is a dual 24x8 switching matrix specifically designed to switch HF 50 signals to 50 MHz and is usable to 100 MHz. The 60-760 can also be configured via software to operate as a single expanded matrix of 48 by 8.
The switching system is housed in a compact 1U high form factor, making it ideal for use in rack mounted applications. All RF connections are provided on the front panel using easily accessed SMB connectors.
The LXI Class C compliant interface allows the 60-760 to be remotely controlled via its Ethernet port through a web browser or by the programmatic interface. Controlling the 60-760 through the web even at great distances could not be simpler. The 60-760 LXI compliant interface serves up a soft front panel application that allows the user to control the switching matrix without the time consuming installation and configuration of drivers.
The products are the latest in an expanding range of LXI compliant switching products available from Pickering Interfaces. David Owen, Business Development Manager for Pickering Interfaces commented "LXI is a rapidly growing part of our business. It has gone from nothing to being a significant proportion of revenue in less than 2 years. We are seeing a rapidly growing adoption of LXI in the test and measurement industry and Pickering Interfaces is fully committed to building a strong LXI business to compliment its PXI business. The recent successful LXI meeting in China supported by Pickering Interfaces shows that LXI will become a global standard for the test and measurement industry".
