With the advantages of PC industry innovation and manufacturing, and by natively leveraging PC technologies of PXI, ADLINK adopts the latest technology and improves cost reduction. With a rich history in measurement and automation, as well as in hardware design and software integration, ADLINK provides a broad portfolio of high performance products with higher speed/bandwidth bus interfaces.
ADLINK positions cooling fans in the rear section of the chassis, drawing cool air through lower apertures and exhausting through the back. Uniform airflow for each PXI slot results, for exceptional cooling. When installed in a rack, the cooling design minimizes hot air intake from the rear, separating airflow for modules and power supplies, while isolating noise source (fan) from modules and maintaining a steady internal temperature.

Intelligent Chassis Management
Intelligent monitoring provides protection, adjustment, and moderation of the system for operational stability. Five sets of sensors on the upper portion of the backplane monitor and control internal temperature, fan speed, and DC voltages. Programmable settings allow the system to be configured to increase fan speed when temperature rises, maintaining temperature control and conserving energy.
High Performance Backplane
ADLINK chassis use high-speed PCI Express and/or PCI bus, as well as advanced timing and triggering for demanding measurement and automation applications, such as:
10 MHz clock signal available to all modules
