Four instruments in single GUI make a stackable test option
Lab bench products in Keysight’s Smart Bench Essentials (SBE) range include a triple-output power supply, an arbitrary function generator, a digital multimeter and an oscilloscope, through one powerful graphical interface.
The SBE series is a combination of hardware and software that accelerates an educators’ teaching experience and students’ learning experience, as well as improves an electronic design and manufacturing engineers’ ability to analyse and troubleshoot products.
They offer integrated data management and analysis capabilities for general test labs and university teaching labs which need test instruments that are connected to each other, to the lab and to the cloud.
The SBE lab bench products have been developed to design and test products in manufacturing and R&D. The compact and stackable design is also particularly suitable for small manufacturing businesses, says Keysight.
The SBE series is complemented by Keysight’s PathWave BenchVue application software. It enables customers to configure instruments quickly, while operating on the same PC screen to test device under test. It stores data on a PC and exports it in standard readable formats for post-analysis work and report generation.
Keysight’s SBE series also offers the optional PathWave Remote Access Lab software and the PathWave Lab Manager software. PathWave Remote Access Lab software allows students to remotely access the lab set-up and perform lab work through the web browser. PathWave Lab Manager software works seamlessly with the SBE instruments to manage lab assets.
“All four instruments have a consistent look and feel, the same graphical user interface and connectivity,” explains Christopher Cain, vice president of Electronic Industrial Products at Keysight Technologies. “The set-up of four test instruments connected through the powerful PathWave application software allows engineers to focus on their insights and innovation, not managing their test instruments,” he adds.
Users can configure, control and monitor multiple instruments from a single screen and automate common tasks from test set-up, data collection, to report generation.
