White paper: Microsoft Windows 7 operating system — key benefits for industrial users
‘Windows 7 — key benefits for industrial users’
Industry is traditionally slow to adopt any new Microsoft operating system. Many industrial Windows users will have no need for the many new features on offer and will be cautious of potential bugs or security flaws. It is rarely worth considering switching to a new operating system unless you are developing a new product. For those who are making the switch, this white paper from Amplicon describes the key benefits of using Windows 7.

Amplicon has introduced the Teledyne Lecroy Wavesurfer 3000 oscilloscope, which has a large 10.1in touchscreen display, 4GS/sec sample rate, 10Mpts/Ch of long memory and fast waveform update of 130kwfms/sec.
Amplicon has introduced the 34461A digital multimeter (DMM) from Keysight Technologies, formerly Agilent. The DMM is said to help engineers see their measurement data in new ways, get actionable information faster and document their results more easily. Truevolt technology reduces extraneous factors such as noise, injected current and input bias current for increased measurement confidence.
Amplicon has launched a selection of industrial-grade wired modems and routers supporting a range of data transmission technologies from broadband ADSL/VDSL to legacy 56k dial-up. Manufacturers include Insys Icom, Digi International and Moxa.
The Agilent U3606B combined digital multimeter/DC power supply from Amplicon is a fully compatible replacement to the U3606A. It can be used to provide both power and measurement when performing tests on a device under test (DUT).
The General Purpose Interface Bus (GPIB), adopted for use in a range of instrumentation applications, is now being challenged by emerging standards such as USB and LXI. This white paper from Amplicon examines the development potential for GPIB and analyses the future of this technology.
