About LXI

A LAN-enabled instrument is one that can be connected and controlled over LAN by a computer.  Instruments have had LAN interfaces for many years, but LXI – LAN eXtensions for Instrumentation – establishes a standardized behavior for all conformant devices when connecting to LAN.  

With the top T&M companies sponsoring and developing this technology, and almost three thousand products from a diverse set of product families, LXI is the current and future standard for T&M.  This means you can connect a wide variety of products from one or many companies together using LAN, and they all behave in a standardized manner to simplify Test System configuration and communication.

Follow the links on the left to learn more about LXI and how it can provide an easier and lower cost path to Test System development.  Each link provides a summary of the stated topic and additional links to documentation on this site.
