VXI Technology Announces Release of EX1629 High-performance Remote Strain Gage Measurement Unit
Today VXI Technology announced the release of the EX1629 High-performance Remote Strain Gage Measurement Unit. The EX1629 is ideal for structural and fatigue testing of aircraft, satellites, and rocket assemblies, as well as general purpose bridge measurements.
VXI Technology has worked closely with industry leading partners, and leveraged years of structural test experience to develop the next generation, high-performance, remote strain gage measurement instrument. The 48-channel EX1629 achieves the goal of measurement accuracy utilizing independent 24-bit A/D converters per channel, along with extensive software selectable filtering. Setup times and maintenance are reduced thanks to a precision programmable internal excitation source with built-in monitoring capabilities, and comprehensive self-calibration features that eliminate the need for additional external signal conditioning or sources.
This forward looking, computer-independent platform is based on the LXI Standard, and provides an ideal platform for distributed high-quality static and dynamic strain measurements. This approach provides an open instrumentation interface, and the ability to distribute the measurement instrumentation at strategic points within the test cell. Support for Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS) functionality, programmable bridge completion resistors, and multiple gain ranges is standard. Additionally, high impedance voltage inputs and high accuracy time stamping capabilities further enhance the feature set of this instrument.
"We are extremely excited to introduce a product that combines the high-accuracy and resolution needed for critical applications such as flight safety, in a form factor that reduces test setup and configuration times," commented Paul Dhillon, Executive Vice-president of VXI Technology, Inc.
