Depending on the platform, interfaces are available with up to 16 ports and full Windows 2000/NT/XP/Me/9x plug-and-play compatibility, which gives you the benefit of automatic configuration for easier installation and maintenance. You can install and use these devices as standard serial ports from your existing applications or with applications written with NI-VISA. Development environments such as Visual Basic, Visual C++, and Excel, as well as NI LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, Measurement Studio, and Lookout application software products, can access the add-in serial ports using standard serial I/O functions. All interface devices include an enhanced serial driver for improved performance, easy configuration, and access to the advanced transceiver control modes of the RS485 interfaces.

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.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
