    Legacy GPIB to USB Adapter (for C3)

    GPIB-USB Adapter

    Detailed Description

    Technology is has changed and today's satellite communication, ATE and broadcast applications demand reliability and stability. The introduction of our C3 Controller and CPU said "goodbye" to our integrated GPIB port. Our extensive C3 development process has resulted in an elegant and dependable platform. When we provide switching and distribution equipment solutions for these critical applications, our C3 controller is at the heart.

    This GPIB-USB product provides that necessary link to legacy control environments. Powered via USB (No external power source is required).





    C3 being pulled out
    As demonstrated in the picture to the left, our larger systems accept two of the C3 controllers for applications that require hot-swap redundancy. Not only does this provide a redundant controller, but also a redundant set of control ports as well.

    As can clearly be seen, today's popular and cost effective control ports are considered "miniature" when compared to the traditional GPIB port.
