Now Obsolete - GPIB (IEEE-488) Switching
Over the past 30 years, Pickering has continuously manufactured and supported our GPIB, System 10 & 20 product lines, while in parallel developing new switching systems based on the latest PXI, LXI and USB technology. A variety of factors including component obsolescence, coupled with technology evolution and market demands, has unfortunately dictated that the majority of our System 10 & 20 products must now move to the maintenance phase of their life cycle. This means that from September 1, 2019, Pickering will no longer actively market these products to new customers, but they will be available to purchase until 31st August 2020 as a last time buy.
Products purchased during the last time buy period will be covered by a one-year warranty. Support services will be supplied beyond this period based on our best efforts to accommodate repairs. We are fully committed to supporting our System 10 & 20 customers, and our engineers can work with you to determine a functionally equivalent, latest technology switching system to replicate your existing System 10 & 20 configuration.
To help with this migration, we have produced a reference table which lists our System 10 & 20 modules together with the closest equivalent PXI and LXI modules
