VXI I am wondering what I would need to get the 90 series receiver and mounting equipment onto a Agilent E1401B C-size VXI Mainframe in a 19" Standard Chassis. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Interchangeable Test Adapters (ITAs) Does VPC specify a maximum weight on ITA enclosures/fixtures that Receivers will support?
90 Series Should all the protective covers of Receivers & ITA be removed when Receivers & ITA are in use? Are the protective covers used only for protecting Receivers & ITA from being hit and damaging any pins?
90 Series For the 2-tier series 90 interface, what weight/moment should not be exceeded for the interface device. I assume it would be greater that the 25 pounds at 6 inches recommended in another FAQ (for a single tier receiver).
90 Series Are the blank modules panels that do not have a bend in them (part number 510 104 178) available? Also, do the mounting screws come with the blank modules? What is the part number to replace them (they are shorter than the ones provided with the connector)?
Receivers I am not sure you adopt metric unit or other unit in drawings in your technical documents. For example,how long or wide does 5.61 stand for? thanks for help
