National Instruments Aust & NZ  introduces the new NI PXIe-1066DC 18-slot chassis that builds on PXI’s superior system lifetime and flexibility, making it ideal for deployed, mission-critical applications.
The new chassis adds high-availability features to the PXI Express platform to maximise system uptime, improving 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. 
With the new chassis, NI adds redundant, hot-swap and front-access capabilities to its PXI platform portfolio for significantly increased system uptime.
According to Dr Tom Bradicich, R&D fellow at National Instruments and former vice president of systems technology at IBM, the NI PXIe-1066DC chassis builds on the long-standing leadership of the PXI standard for mission-critical projects, illustrating NI’s continued commitment to superior reliability, availability, serviceability and manageability to ensure system uptime.

Key features of NI PXIe-1066DC chassis: 
  • Redundant hot-swappable DC power supplies and fans facilitate maximum system uptime
  • Front-accessible power supply and fan tray provide flexibility in position-restrictive applications
  • Ethernet port gives engineers remote in-band chassis health monitoring capabilities for advanced system management
