VTI Introduces Glitch-free Sensor
Simulation Instrument

Irvine, CA – August 4, 2011 – VTI Instruments Corporation is pleased to announce the release of a powerful new sensor simulation instrument, the EX1200-7008 Multichannel Universal RTD Simulator.
  The EX1200-7008 is the only solution available that is capable of delivering 8-channels of precision glitch-free resistance value programming, with selectable pulsed and continuous excitation current modes, in a single high-density instrument. Advanced solid-state servo mechanisms actively simulate bounce-less resistance values changes, providing smooth ramp transitions and eliminating contact bounce oscillations that can deliver damaging thermal shocks to sensitive test articles.

This versatile instrument is ideally suited to address the most critical electronic functional test (ATE) and data acquisition (DAQ) applications including spacecraft and jet engine sensor simulation, computer temperature simulation, and industrial control system safety verification.Systems can be seamlessly scaled to meet a
    wide range of application requirements, from eight channels in a ½ rack 1U footprint to 128 channels in 3U of rack space.

"The EX1200-7008 is ideal for characterizing the behavior of a broad range of measurement and signal conditioning systems," said Jon Semancik, VTI's Director of Marketing. "Multiple channels can be synchronized to create virtual thermal environments for simulating and evaluating complete system level performance."

Unmatched accuracy and stability, combined with the widest range of RTD simulation functionality available, make this a truly universal solution. Closed loop resistance monitoring eliminates errors commonly introduced from aging and temperature drift, while the need for conversion algorithms is eliminated with direct programming of temperature values.

The EX1200-7008 Multichannel Universal RTD Simulator is the latest addition to the award winning EX1200 Switch, Measure and I/O product family, the highest density solution available in the industry, with unmatched scalability and expansion capabilities. Advanced timing and synchronization make this solution perfect for high-reliability ATE and distributed DAQ applications, while the embedded web interface provides virtual monitoring and control of all signal switching and instrumentation without the need for third-party software, simplifying setup and debugging activities.
