Three Platform Models, One Testing Environment
The IQS-600 platform comes in three models, the IQS-610P-HS and IQS-605P-HS controller units, which feature a dual-core processor, Ethernet ports and optional remote GPIB control, and the IQS-610E-HS expansion unit, which allows you to integrate up to 90 additional test modules into your system. Now supporting EXFO’s Bus III, the new -HS models allow faster communication with modules. As a result, firmware upgrade time is greatly reduced.
IQS-610P-HS controller unit
- Houses up to 10 test modules
- Ideal for high-volume manufacturing applications
- Comes with all necessary interface ports for external devices: monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, etc.
IQS-610E-HS expansion unit
- Houses up to 10 test modules per expansion unit
- Allows the system to integrate up to 100 test modules using a single controller unit
- Simplifies test station operation
IQS-605P-HS controller unit
- Houses up to 5 test modules
- 8.4-inch TFT touchscreen for simple manual operation
- Designed for R&D, lab and manufacturing applications
Software User-Friendliness and Time-Saving Efficiency
Thanks to Ethernet-based sharing capabilities, the IQS-600 enables multiple users to launch test applications, minimizing both test equipment footprint and CAPEX.
Automation and remote access
Easily automate your test system, and boost speed and performance using LabVIEW 8 drivers available for all IQS modules, or TCL libraries available for transport and datacom modules. Plus, access your IQS-600 platform remotely—from anywhere in the world—using VNC, Remote Desktop or Web browsers to monitor and troubleshoot your test applications.
RAID 1 option
Add a second hard drive that performs real-time mirroring of all data, delivering increased data reliability and test performance.
A Test System You Can Lean On
With the IQS-600 platform, integration doesn’t stop at test applications. It also means packing everything you need to get through your test cycles more easily, day in and day out. Consequently, the IQS-600 was designed to bring user-friendliness, reliability and flexibility to the next level.
Based on the Windows OS, the IQS-600 offers truly intuitive graphical user interfaces (GUI) that simplify module control and system status assessment. Its open architecture allows you to install any Windows-compatible software.
The IQS-600 uses the proven Windows XP Embedded OS, as well as industrial-grade PC components that withstand even the toughest manufacturing conditions. Its optional RAID dual hard drive configuration also provides a live backup of all test data, for increased data protection and platform reliability.
Control your IQS-600 platform from any remote location through GPIB, RS-232 or Ethernet connection and run applications developed with any programming environment, from LabVIEW™, TCL and SCPI to ActiveX/DCOM and .NET. Use any PC/Windows device, such as foot pedals, bar code readers, PCI data acquisition cards, to build more complex test stations requiring more than optical, transport and datacom instruments.
