Engineers can use National Instruments' software-configurable 18-slot PXI chassis to programmatically configure timing and synchronization signals between modular instruments. With configuration and driver software such as Measurement & Automation Explorer and NI-DAQ 7, engineers can increase system performance and accelerate test times by configuring the trigger routing modules on the backplane of the chassis to reserve trigger lines or route triggers to and from any of the chassis' three bus segments.

The PXI-1045 chassis features an operating temperature range from 0C to 55C for environments with extended temperature conditions, and includes a low-jitter 10MHz reference clock with slot-to-slot skew of <250ps for device synchronization.

For importing or exporting system reference clocks, the rear of the CompactPCI-compatible chassis includes two BNC I/O connectors. Engineers can configure up to 5,000 channels of 24-bit dynamic signal acquisition by synchronizing multiple PXI-1045 chassis with the PXI-6653 timing and synchronization module. For secure 19-inch rack mounting, the chassis offers optional front and rear rack mount kits. It works with all 3U PXI hardware devices and NI software including LabVIEW 7 Express graphical development environment, TestStand test management software and Measurement Studio for Visual Studio .NET.
