TDK-Lambda Americas, High Power Division, has announced the release of an optional ethernet interface for the entire Genesys™ product family. The option is certified to LXI-C.
The Genesys™ series is the industry’s widest range (750W to 15kW) of AC/DC programmable power solutions sharing completely identical interfaces. With the LAN interface development, they can provide more flexible system integration and increased functionality for test and measurement systems and OEM designers. Platforms include GENH 1U Half Rack 750W, GEN 1U Full Rack 750W & 1500W, GEN 2U 3300W and GEN 3U 10/15kW.
LXI (LAN extensions for instrumentation) is a next-generation, LAN-based modular platform standard for automated test systems. As a leading supplier of programmable AC/DC Power, Lambda has joined the consortium to increase the functionality, flexibility and performance of the Genesys™ series of programmable supplies and to support the development of the LXI standard.
LXI combines built-in measurement science and PC-standard I/O connectivity from rack-and-stack instruments with the modularity and size reduction of cardcage-based systems. With LXI, engineers are able to leverage the software and measurement accuracy they currently have from their GPIB instruments to the test system. The LXI standard provides a basis for long life-cycle instrumentation implementations that are not limited by bandwidth, software or computer-dependent architectures.
