VTI Instruments Introduces Transient Capture and Timestamp Module

Irvine, CA – November 17, 2009 – VTI Instruments Corporation announced today the release of the EX1200-7416, a transient capture and timestamp module that further extends the capabilities of its popular EX1200 series of configurable LXI Class A instruments. With a rich feature set, it supports a broad range of applications that require level comparison, event detection, and time stamping.

Online PR News – 18-December-2009 – – “The EX1200-7416 is ideal for applications like power supply monitoring where it is critical to detect out-of-tolerance conditions that require immediate intervention,” said Jon Semancik, VTI’s Director of Marketing. “It can be combined with other EX1200 plug-ins to create a versatile, multifunction instrument that can be used in a variety of data acquisition and test applications.”

The EX1200-7416 has 16 input channels and can continuously monitor a variety of high-level analog and discrete signals – up to 100 V. Each channel has an 8-bit DAC that can be independently programmed to set the trip level. The EX1200-7416 can detect transients that cannot normally be captured by a typical DMM or scanning measurement system. As part of the EX1200 LXI Class A instrument series, this module can also record events with IEEE 1588 time codes to provide a precise correlation of event/time data.

Input channels can be internally routed to the optional EX1200 series DMM to measure the analog level of the signals. The reference DACs can also be routed to the internal DMM to facilitate self-verification that can be executed under program control.
