Tektronix VX1401 13-Slot C-Size VXI Mainframe

  • C-Size, 13-Slot VXI Mainframe
  • 115 / 220 VAC Automatic Voltage Selection
  • Superior Cooling Capabilities


Tektronix/CDS offered two versions of a C size mainframe with 13 slot capacity. The two 13-slot mainframes, the VX1400 and VX1401, provide alternative not only in cost, power and weight, but also in dynamic current and noise performance.

The VX1400 Mainframe provides slightly more useable power (702 Watts vx 570 Watts). At lower cost and weight, thought the VX1401 Mainframe is the preferred model in most other respects. By making more efficient use of available power, the VX1401 provides substantially better dynamic current capacity and low noise levels over a wider range of instrument loading than the VX1400. The lower power capacity also permits extending the operating temperature range to -10 to 55C (from 0 to 50C).

The VX1400 or VX1401 Mainframe is designed to hold up to 12 instrument modules plus a Resource Manager/Slot 0 module, such as the Tektronix/CDS VX4521 Advanced Slot 0 Device/Resource Manager Module, for use in IEEE-488 applications with an external system controller.

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.
