VTI Instruments Corp
2031 Main Street
Irvine, CA, 92614

Press release date: April 8, 2009

Irvine, CA April 8, 2009 VTI Instruments Corporation is pleased to announce a new software solution designed to enhance the modal testing capabilities of its dynamic signal analysis (DSA) product family. Dynamic Measurements, Inc. has released its new Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) Frequency Response Measurements component, an addition to its Acq_Mat turnkey software. Acq_Mat enables users to quickly set up VTI hardware and acquire data that can be directly ported to MATLAB for analysis.

Acq_Mat is a multipurpose software package that provides a GUI used to interact with MathWorks' MATLAB program. The new MIMO option supports up to eight excitations (source channels) and numerous response channels. With the new capabilities, Acq_Mat provides options for time and frequency measurements, swept sine, octave, RPM run-up & run-down, order tracking, and multi-reference impact testing.

VTI has a long history of providing world-class hardware solutions for DSA applications, said Chris Gibson, VTI Business Development Manager. The combination of Acq_Mat and VTI hardware provides engineers with a powerful yet cost-effective solution for modal testing.

The software runs on top of MATLAB on PCs with Windows XP or Vista. It supports multiple channels of VTI's DSA hardware, including VT1432A/B, VT1433B, VT1434A, VT1435, VT1436, and VT2216A, with either the Firewire or EX2500 Gigabit Ethernet interface. Engineers can also export Acq_Mat data using the Universal File Format type 58 in either ASCII or binary. About VTI Instruments Corp.
