PXI Interface targets large switching applications.
May 8, 2012 -
Providing connectivity for two 18-slot PXI chassis, Dual Tier SCOUT Interface supports up to 8,400 I/O points and 8 external wiring slots. Direct Access Technology enables system designers to limit or eliminate traditional cabling by introducing pull-through interface adapter called Direct Access Kit. Through utilization of fully enclosed PCBs or fixed-wire connectivity solutions, DAKs allow addition of individual PXI instrumentation with no adverse effect on other system components.

Dual Tier SCOUT Interface Sets New Standard for Large Switching Applications
High Point, NC - MAC Panel introduces a Dual Tier SCOUT interface to compliment the popular SCOUT interface line. The new interface features all the performance benefits of SCOUT and provides connectivity for two 18-slot PXI chassis with support for up to 8,400 I/O points and 8 external wiring slots. Dual Tier SCOUT sets the NEW standard for large switching applications.
All SCOUT interfaces feature Direct Access Technology, an innovative pull-thru mass interconnect solution specifically designed to deliver the full performance of the PXI platform. Direct Access Technology enables system designers to limit or eliminate traditional cabling by introducing a cutting-edge pull-through interface adapter - called a Direct Access Kit (DAK). Through the utilization of fully enclosed PCBs or fixed-wire connectivity solutions, DAKs allow for easy removal and addition of individual PXI instrumentation with no adverse effect on other system components. Furthermore, DAKs mitigate capacitance, signal crosstalk and other attenuation issues that plague conventional cable based ATE. The result is increased performance with a far higher degree of stability and up time.
