The HP Agilent E8408A, a new 4-slot C-size VXI Mainframe, is priced well below other VXI C-size mainframes. Its low price brings down the cost of test, especially when combined with Agilent's multi-function VXI M-Modules and data acquisition modules. E8408A is HP Agilent's smallest and lightest-weight C-size mainframe. Its small size saves system rack space. Small size and light weight make the E8408A transportable and suitable for many data acquisition and field service applications. The HP Agilent E8408A offers mainframe monitoring, quiet efficient cooling, and 175 watts of usable power. Front panel monitor lights give up-to-the-moment indication that power supply and fan are operating and that the internal temperature is OK. A two-speed fan provides quiet, powerful cooling.
