Quest - Master ProxiLAB Instrumentation in a Single Click


KEOLABS’ Quest line of testing tools delivers state of the art characterization capabilities with unprecedented ease-of-use through the new Quest software environment. 

Quest provides characterization tests as preconfigured scenarios. These scenarios control the tester ’s programmable features to enable single-click access to contactless tests such as waveform analysis and performance profiling.

The scenario’s configuration, description, scripts, traces and results are all stored in a workbook file that can be easily shared with others using the free Quest software.

Ordering Information

ProxiLAB Quest capabilities are determined by the produt options that your order. Options can be added at anytime to add product features. This allows users to order the features that they require chossing from:

  • Emulation of reader (PCD) or card (PICC) signals
  • Digital only or digital and analog level controls.
ProxiLAB Quest includes all the probes and cords required for its use with the ordered feature options. Reference probes and antennas that are specific to a norm (ISO/IEC 10373-6, NFC Forum, EMVCo, etc.) must be ordered as additional accessories.
For complete information about available options, pricing, accessories to order and availability, please contact KEOLABS' sales or your regional KEOLABS' distributor.
