Remote Long Distance Control of LXI Instruments

Below are two videos I did featuring two flexible low cost wireless methods for remote long distance control of LXI instruments. This is for test / datalogging / data acquisition applications where there is no Ethernet or other network available, for instance when doing outdoor test measurements. The first video features using an RF Ethernet Bridge and the second video features using a cellular router. In each video a particular instrument is featured, but the remote long distance control method discussed could be used with any LXI instrument.

RF Ethernet Bridge:

Cellular Router:


One aspect not covered in the video when using these methods for remote long distance control of LXI instruments is network latency. Because of the distance between the computer and instrument and because of the various network layers, network latency can be much longer so any software created for these types of long distance instrument control application should be robust enough to handle longer network latency. For more info on using a a cellular router check out an earlier post I did on using a cellular router for instrument control, click here

  1. This is a very good post which I really enjoy reading. It is not every day that I have the possibility to see something like this.
