SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 16, 2010 -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the Agilent M9186A PXI isolated single-channel voltage/current source, a modular voltage-current source for use in automotive electronics test applications.

The modular PXI-based solution enables testers to generate a voltage and measurement of the resultant current, or generate a current and measurement of the resultant voltage. The M9186A comes with SENSE input to supply accurate voltage to the device under test (DUT). The module also offers a safety interlock feature to protect the DUT from potential damage from high voltages.

“Customers will benefit from the ease of use of this solution,” said Daniel Mak, Agilent vice president and general manager, Measurement Systems Division. “Agilent includes sample codes that end-users can easily modify. This simplifies the process of integrating the module into a measurement system and reduces the amount of time it takes to complete complex tasks.”

Additional Information
The M9186A PXI isolated single-channel voltage/current source solution is priced at $3,600 and can be ordered today.
