Product of the Year: EX1200-1538 VTI Irvine, CA - VTI Instruments Corporation is pleased to announce that it has earned the NASA Tech Briefs' 2011 "Product of the Year" Award for the EX1200-1538, multifunction I/O card with enhanced frequency, counter and DAC capabilities.
NASA Tech Briefs' Readers' Choice Product of the Year Awards recognize those products with the highest technical merit and practical value to the magazine's design engineering audience. Linda L. Bell, Editorial Director of NASA Tech Briefs went on to say, "The winners are the best of the best -- the products that design engineers feel were the most important new products introduced in 2011 that will help them do their jobs better and more efficiently." The EX1200-1538 is the only solution capable of delivering 8-channels of independent 1 MHz frequency / 32-bit counter inputs, 16 channels of isolated digital I/O, and 2 channels of isolated analog output (DAC) in a single instrument. It is ideally suited to address the most demanding electronic functional test and data acquisition applications including precision frequency and counter/timer measurements in ATE systems, motion or position measurements from rotating shafts, and monitoring the speed of motors or turbines.
"We are pleased to have been selected from among the industry's leading design engineering instrumentation companies to receive this honor," said Tom Sarfi, VTI's VP of Business Development and Marketing. "This achievement is a result of our sustained commitment to product quality and innovation focused on our Customer's needs." Tom Sarfi continued, "Our approach to tightly integrated data acquisition packages reduces system costs, improves performance, and simplifies programming and integration."
Unmatched time and frequency domain measurement accuracy is obtained with VTI's refined electronic counter implementation, and includes the ability to directly measure frequency, totalize counts, RPM, and quadrature input signals. Additionally, the isolated digital I/O and DAC output channels protect against high common mode and transient voltages and can be combined to achieve expanded voltage and current levels. This tightly integrated package offers the flexibility to directly measure and control a wide range of industrial systems, making this card a perfect fit for relay actuation, speed control, and simulation.
The EX1200-1538 multifunction I/O Card 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.
