We can supply a PXI chassis to meet every PXI application, they range from 8 to 19 3U slots. Selected chassis are available with optional low acoustic operation; suitable for office, laboratory or other environments where low audible noise is essential. These PXI chassis can be optimized to accept multi-slot modules, such as our BRIC™ matrix modules , while only occupying one electrical slot.
