Create Your Own Environment

The MI-3000 Arena™ includes a specially designed user interface to create and support productive test and measurement processes to meet your unique requirements. Whether you collect data for research and development, analyze test and measurement data, take quick test patterns or perform repetitive tasks the MI-3000’s Arena™ software delivers the right tools to meet your needs.

Quick Pattern environment lets you easily collect and plot data in a focused, straightforward manner. Easily define and store system setups for data collection and use these setups again and again. Quick Pattern also provides a convenient link from its plot feature for optional data analysis.

When you need full test and measurement capability at hand, the Standard environment provides access to all the features of the MI-3000 at your fingertips. Seamlessly integrating collected data with a host of analysis functions and manipulation tools, the Standard environment provides the data and reports you need with the fewest ‘clicks’ start to finish.

The Tool Kit environment allows you to easily set up test and measurement processes for repeatability. Create a Tool Kit to perform any repetitive task by simply ‘dragging and dropping’ the processes into your setup mode, name it and with one ‘click,’ let it run.
