The EX1200 Switch Measure Mainframe Series
The EX1200 family is the highest density switching and data acquisition instrument on the market, offering the ability to combine low-level, power and RF switching modules in a single mainframe. This scalable product family is designed to leverage capital investments in a common hardware and software platform that can be used in engineering, manufacturing and field service. By combining different modules, a comprehensive signal switching subsystem can be assembled, which can be complemented with precise analogue and digital I/O modules.
In conjunction with the optional 6.5-digit DMM, the EX1200 family can be configured as a cost-effective, high-density measurement and control device capable of acquiring data from thermocouples, RTDs, thermistors and voltage/current sensors at speeds of up to 1000 samples per second. Plug-in switch/multiplexer modules are used to expand the number of channels that can be scanned in a single system. Additional plug-in modules expand the capabilities of this data acquisition device to include analogue and digital precision outputs for controlling external devices, as well as source/speed for measurements on rotating machinery.
The competitively priced EX1200 series offers nearly twice the working area and higher channel count capacity to provide the highest level of signal integrity with the same vertical footprint as PXI. For lower density switching applications, VTI also offers a comprehensive family of high performance PXI Express switching modules.
The performance of a switching system goes beyond the relays and the switch card PCB. Everything in the signal path, including the cabling and connections from the prefling and to the meters, can add noise and degrade the signal. VTI optimises system-level performance with user-friendly connection options for all EX1200 products that minimise signal loss.
