Why Choose SCOUT Express?

The SCOUT family of system interfaces from MAC Panel have become synonymous globally for their contributions to system value and performance by greatly reducing the need for cabling between the instruments and the system interface.

The latest family member, SCOUT EXPRESS, has been designed to maximize the performance potential of the Keysight TS-8989 system while offering users unprecedented scalability through it's highly configurable modular design.

A SCOUT EXPRESS Interface requires minimal system design and can be fully assembled and connected in just a few hours. Perhaps just as importantly, the interface can be fully reconfigured to suit different applications in less than an hour by simply removing and replacing the instruments and their DAK (Direct Access Kit) connection modules. This brings true system scalability to the factory floor as never seen before in ATE systems.

"SCOUT EXPRESS Is A High Performance System Interface For Keysight TS-8989 Test Systems."
