Press Release Summary:
Designed for scanning multiple points to common bus in either 2- or 4-wire configurations, Model EX1200-3096 supports thermocouple, RTD, and thermistor measurements, and is suited for testing cable harnesses, semiconductors, and PCBs. Switch and measurement operations can be tightly synchronized as part of module's embedded scan list to minimize processor overhead and optimize test throughput. Capacitive discharge relays keep high voltages from disturbing sensitive measurement points.

VTI's New High-Density Signal Multiplexer
Irvine, CA - October 14, 2009 - VTI Instruments Corporation is pleased to announce the release of its latest high-density switch module, the EX1200-3096. As part of VTI's EX1200 Precision Switch, Measure and I/O product series, these modules can multiplex up to 576 channels in a 1U footprint.
"The EX1200-3096 can be used to efficiently measure very high channel counts, especially when used in conjunction with its built-in scan list capabilities," said Jon Semancik, VTI's Director of Marketing. "Additionally, this module can be seamlessly implemented across the entire EX1200 family, providing incredible density and scalability."
