iViewBox - Interface for Non-PC-based Test Systems


big_image_1

iViewBox is A&D’s solution for connecting test systems that are not compatible with iView to the LabWorX lab management system. These include any non-Windows 7 or XP systems, and those with embedded controllers, such as temperature chambers and component systems. Like iView, iViewBox is configured and controlled through LabCentral. It monitors and controls test systems through built-in discrete I/O or the included CAN port, and can be extended with a variety of FieldIO modules (Analog, Digital, Thermocouple and Frequency). Systems can include as many as 100 discrete I/O channels, and 100 input or output data items on the CAN bus.

iView provides the same capabilities as iView for test systems not otherwise compatible:


  • Provides a single, consistent interface for the LabCentral servers to connect to a test system
  • Provides an out-of-the box integration with all PC-based test systems
  • Provides a plug-in interface to integrate with third-party test systems
  • Keep use of network resources as small as possible by integrating services that would otherwise have to transmit large amounts of information to the servers (e.g. LabMinder Agent handles most of the monitoring functions itself)

Benefits

  • Allows integration of systems into LabWorX that would not otherwise be included
  • Provides the same dashboard monitoring and control capabilities that is available with iView test systems
  • Automated data upload without test system triggering allows easy integration
