NI Extends PXI Leadership with New Chassis That Improves System Uptime
Press release date: May 1, 2012
AUSTIN, Texas. -- National Instruments today introduced the NI PXIe-1066DC 18-slot chassis, which adds high-availability features to the PXI Express platform to maximize system uptime. These features improve the system-level mean time before failure (MTBF) and mean time to repair (MTTR) of PXI systems in many demanding, mission-critical test, measurement and control applications. The chassis adds critical component redundancy and remote monitoring to the uptime-focused capabilities of existing NI PXI instrumentation.
"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 and former vice president of systems technology at IBM. "This new chassis illustrates NI's continued commitment to superior reliability, availability, serviceability and manageability when system uptime is paramount."
