EX1200 Instrument Family (LXI)

The EX1200 product family is a modular and scalable series of multifunction switch/measure units that can be configured to address a variety of applications in the mechanical data acquisition and electronic test environments.

Highest Density Switching Systems

The EX1200 series is the highest density switch and measure/control subsystem on the market today with the capacity to switch up to 576 channels of voltage or temperature in a single rack 1U mainframe.

Uncompromised Performance and Signal Transparency

EX1200 series switching modules offer nearly double the available working space and increased channel count capacity to ensure the highest degree of signal integrity in the same vertical footprint as PXI.

Preserving Signal Integrity End-to-End

The performance of a switch system goes beyond just the relays and the switch card PCB - everything in the signal path can add noise and degrade the signal. VTI optimizes the system-level performance by providing easy to use connectivity options that minimize signal loss.

Leverage capital Investment

The EX1200 series is designed to scale as one common hardware and software platform from development to manufacturing and field service.

Powerful Software Options Designed for Ease of Use

VTI delivers a variety of software utilities and options that reduce the time it takes to begin using the EX1200 family of products. The series is delivered with an embedded web interface that provides virtual monitoring and control of all switches and instruments without the need for third-party software. Open standard instrument drivers allow programming in all popular application development environments. EXLab turn-key data acquisition software offers simplified set up and data logging.
