IRVINE, CA, April 5, 2017 – AMETEK VTI Instruments (www.vtiinstruments.com)
today announced the introduction of its EMX-70XX Series of Precision
Programmable Resistor Ladder Modules, the latest addition to its family
of PXI Express (PXIe) functional test solutions.
As part of the EMX family of products, these modules can be mixed and
matched with other EMX series modules to configure high-density
measurement and switching systems. The EMX-70XX Series is designed for
such applications as precision simulation of RTDs and other
resistance-based sensors; process control; ATE calibration; controlled
loading of devices under test (DUTs); and potentiometer simulation.
All of the modules in the EMX-70XX Series can provide four independent
channels of programmable resistors, with four decades per channel. Each
channel is equipped with its own sense leads for feedback.
The EMX-7004 module is designed to deliver exceptional stability and
accuracy (up to
programmed value ±0.5 Ω) for any resistance value from 1 Ω
to 16,383 Ω. It can be adjusted in 1 Ω increments, either through the
software application programming interface (API) or the dynamic soft
front panel provided.
The EMX-7005, EMX-7006, and EMX-7007 modules are
optimized for applications requiring higher resistance values, with
programmable settings ranging from 163 kΩ to 16,383 MΩ. All four cards
offer a 0.5 W power rating and low thermal offset (≤ ±25
μV). IVI-COM, IVI-C, and LabVIEW™ drivers for the modules are
included. The EMX-7014, EMX-7015, and EMX-7016 are available for general
purpose applications with less stringent accuracy requirements.
“The EMX-70XX Series is designed for easy configurability. Two or four
channels can be tied together and programmed to operate as a
potentiometer. They also support both parallel and series operation. Two
or more channels can be connected in parallel for increased accuracy and
to reduce the step size, or, if preferred, two or more channels can be
connected in series to increase the range,” notes Jon Semancik, Product
Line Manager for VTI Instruments.
