The Yokogawa DL9000/DL9700/9500 series and SB5000, with the LXI compliant Ethernet option (/C9 or /C12) installed, are now fully compliant with LXI Class C.
LXI (Lan eXtensions for Instrumentation) is a communication platform for test and measurement instruments, built on LAN technology. It provides improved transfer speeds with enhanced usability and lower cost than traditional instrument interfaces. It’s easy to migrate over from traditional GPIB systems, because LXI utilises existing technologies such as VXI-11 or IVI.
More than 20 test and measurement manufacturers provide LXI compliant products, and the total number of supported products is already above 1100. As a new communication platform for applications requiring high transfer speed, low cost and usability, LXI will become more widespread in the future and Yokogawa will be including this feature on many more new products.
