Recommended RWSL Equipment and Vendors


(still needs to be filled in) 


This page contains recommended equipment and vendor information.  We recommend that you use the equipment suggested here because the LabView Virtual Instruments (VI) that have been created for these specific pieces of equipment will likely not work with other similar equipment without at least some re-writing of the VIs.  In some cases replacing the equipment recommended here will require significant re-writing.  In order to share NANSLO RDN support services and to share remote lab services seamlessly it is important that all members of the NANSLO RDN use the same equipment and software.  These standards will be reviewed bi-annually and updated to take into consideration new products and ways of doing things by the "NANSLO R&D and Technical Standards Committee".  If you wish to recommend changes to these recommendations and/or standards please contact your institution’s representative on that committee who will take your recommendation forward to the committee.
