The capabilities and development of LXI standard in measuring techniques
From the moment of its appearance in 2005 LXI standard (LAN eXtensions for Instrumentation) is used in more and more fields: electronic technology test, automated measuring complexes, the systems of remote data acquisition and manufacturing process control, robot technology and many others.
The capability to synchronize LXI devices allows to start measuring/process right at the time set, synchronize measurements or output signals without the use of special synchronization cables and to mark the time for all events/processes and data. As a rule, LXI devices are designed modular, without operating control and display on the front panel, they have autonomic power supply and driver of replaceable virtual device.
Economy, compact size, simplicity of work, the capability of simple system modernization and reconfiguration and also high productivity make the devices of LXI standard more prospective for the use when the systems with Web-interface are designed. The present article tells about the LXI standard structure and broadens the vision of its capabilities making concrete examples of its use.
