AQ2212 Frame Controller (9 Slots)

The AQ2211 and AQ2212 frame controllers are platforms for the AQ2200 Multi Application Test System. These frame controllers contain a variety of measurement applications that enable you to get the information you need without connecting an external controller PC. In addition, they have three different external interfaces, so you can always use the best interface for a particular measurement application.

  • Easy-to-view color display
  • USB port for data storage
  • Measurement module "hot-swapping" capability
  • Remote monitoring and measurement through a LAN

The AQ2211 and AQ2212 both have a 320×240-dot, wide-viewing-angle, high-resolution color TFT display for easy viewing. Even detailed graphs are easy to view on this display.

Multi User Function 

Up to 5 users can access to a frame controller simultaneously.
Possible to control individual modules.

AQ2211 1

Macro Programming Function 

Easy way to build auto-measurement systems, not requiring an external PC to run.
Easy programming with Macro editor, PC application software.

AQ2211 2

USB port for data storage
The USB port located on the front panel makes it easy to quickly save and load data. Measurements are saved in CSV format, so they can be easily imported into almost any PC application.

AQ2211 3

Measurement module "hot-swapping" capability

Measurement modules can be inserted or removed without turning off the power. This hot-swapping capability makes it easier to reconfigure your system. (warm-up time still required to ensure accurate measurements.)

Remote monitoring and measurement through a LAN

The AQ2211 and AQ2212 support USB and Ethernet as well as GP-IB, which is the standard interface for measuring instruments. Ethernet support makes remote monitoring and control even easier.
