Original Press Release:
Introducing EX1401 Thermocouple and Voltage Instrument
AMETEK VTI Instruments is proud to introduce the EX1401, a precision, 16-channel, isolated thermocouple and voltage measurement instrument. The EX1401 delivers accuracies of ±0.20°C, 1000 V channel-channel isolation, built-in self-test capabilities, and independent 24-bit ADC’s per channel. Independent Cold Junction Compensation (CJC) — implemented on a per channel basis — and Open Thermocouple Detection (OTD) further enhance the instrument’s capabilities.
The EX1401 has application in automotive and battery testing, highly accelerated life test/highly accelerated stress screening (HALT/HASS), health monitoring, and jet engine testing. Its ability to acquire data at 20K samples/second/channel allows its usage in high-speed temperature transient applications. Use it in any test environment that requires accurate temperature measurement and repeatability.
Power over Ethernet+ (PoE+) means that engineers can just connect to the network and begin testing. An industry-standard LXI interface allows the EX1401 to be distributed and positioned close to the device-under-test, reducing the implementation and support costs associated with long cable lengths. That also reduces transducer cable lengths along with associated coupled EMI interference, helping to improve measurement accuracy. In addition, the instrument features a comprehensive, built-in self-test function that reports instrument status and problems, maximizing run-time performance.
A full-featured embedded web interface provides configuration and data displays, simplifying setup and usage. EXLab Express, our intuitive data acquisition software, is included with each instrument, eliminating the need for programming.
Parallel data storage and standalone autonomous operating modes further expand the utility of this versatile instrument. The EX1401 also supports IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP), allowing engineers to synchronize measurements from many devices throughout the test application.
