Yokogawa adds two measuring stations to its WE7000 series pf PC-based measurement system product line. The Model WE500 and Model WE900 are 5-slot and 9-slot mounting units, respectively.

Each unit consists of a case, power supply and processor, based on a 32bit 150MHz RISC. USB and Ethernet communications are built in, making the use of a separate communication module unnecessary.

What's more, plug-and-play provided by the USB interface means that there's no need to set communication parameters between your host PC and a measuring station.

Fast processing resulting from the high-speed RISC offloads the PC. The WE7000 series can carry out measurements at up to 1GS/s on up to 270 channels. These systems also feature simultaneous multi-channel sampling on their high-voltage (up to 350VRMS) isolated inputs.

These units are also capable of identifying installed modules and controlling communication between the modules and a PC. In addition, measurement modules within the units can exchange trigger and timebase signals with external equipment.

Other features include voice memos, Web monitoring, and graphic display of instantaneous values. Software tools also permit these systems to be used in automated test applications for Go/No-Go assessments in manufacturing environmentswithout the need for a PC.
