ATE Core Configurations : rack-based PXI test systems of National Instruments

NI’s ATE core configurations aim to lower cost of test systems

National Instruments (NI) announced ATE Core Configurations which deliver core mechanical, power and safety infrastructure to help users accelerate the design and build of automated test systems.

ATE Core Configurations help simplify the design, procurement, assembly, and deployment of test systems at a lower cost and shorter time to market by offering test organizations a platform for standardization.

These 19-in., rack-based configurations are available in various rack-unit heights, and offer scalable power profiles to match the needs of many application and geography. Test organizations can benefit from integrated safety features such as thermal shutoff, emergency power off (EPO), optional uninterruptible power supplies and IEC 61010 certification.

Key benefits :

  • Customizable¬†: choice of what is included in the system, and where within the rack, including PXI instrumentation, signal conditioning, kW power supplies, cooling…
  • Simplify bill of materials management with consolidated part numbers and fewer vendor transactions.
  • Readily deployable : ¬†IEC 61010 certified systems which are backed by more than 1,500 NI sales, system and support engineers worldwide
  • Expansive ecosystem : work with NI Alliance Partners to specify a turn-key system, including mass interconnect and fixturing, test software development, system maintenance, lifecycle support…
