At each step of the design and manufacturing process, systems and components must be tested thoroughly and efficiently. Thoroughly as in choosing the right set of test modules for in-depth characterization and truly accurate results. Efficiently as in integrating optical transport and datacom test applications into a single platform, speeding up both setup and actual testing.
A true single-box workstation, EXFO’s IQS-600 platform delivers all this, plus a number of connectivity and remote control features. Thanks to its Windows-based open architecture and Ethernet connectivity, the fully integrated IQS platform is the heart of your test system. It offers unmatched test automation, minimizing manual intervention and ensuring accurate, repeatable results.
The IQS-600 Integrated Qualification System—multilayer testing efficiency in a single platform environment.
The IQS-600 platform comes in three models, the IQS-610P-HS and IQS-605P-HS controller units, which feature a dual-core processor, Ethernet ports and optional remote GPIB control, and the IQS-610E-HS expansion unit, which allows you to integrate up to 90 additional test modules into your system. Now supporting EXFO’s Bus III, the new -HS models allow faster communication with modules. As a result, firmware upgrade time is greatly reduced.
Thanks to Ethernet-based sharing capabilities, the IQS-600 enables multiple users to launch test applications, minimizing both test equipment footprint and CAPEX.
Easily automate your test system, and boost speed and performance using LabVIEW 8 drivers available for all IQS modules, or TCL libraries available for transport and datacom modules. Plus, access your IQS-600 platform remotely—from anywhere in the world—using VNC, Remote Desktop or Web browsers to monitor and troubleshoot your test applications.
Add a second hard drive that performs real-time mirroring of all data, delivering increased data reliability and test performance.
With the IQS-600 platform, integration doesn’t stop at test applications. It also means packing everything you need to get through your test cycles more easily, day in and day out. Consequently, the IQS-600 was designed to bring user-friendliness, reliability and flexibility to the next level.
Based on the Windows OS, the IQS-600 offers truly intuitive graphical user interfaces (GUI) that simplify module control and system status assessment. Its open architecture allows you to install any Windows-compatible software.
The IQS-600 uses the proven Windows XP Embedded OS, as well as industrial-grade PC components that withstand even the toughest manufacturing conditions. Its optional RAID dual hard drive configuration also provides a live backup of all test data, for increased data protection and platform reliability.
Control your IQS-600 platform from any remote location through GPIB, RS-232 or Ethernet connection and run applications developed with any programming environment, from LabVIEW™, TCL and SCPI to ActiveX/DCOM and .NET. Use any PC/Windows device, such as foot pedals, bar code readers, PCI data acquisition cards, to build more complex test stations requiring more than optical, transport and datacom instruments.
