Glitch-free sensor simulation instrument

The EX1200-7008 multichannel universal RTD simulator from VTI Instruments Corp. is designed to deliver 8-channels of precision glitch-free resistance value programming, with selectable pulsed and continuous excitation current modes.

Solid-state servo mechanisms actively simulate bounce-less resistance values changes, providing smooth ramp transitions and eliminating contact bounce oscillations that can deliver damaging thermal shocks to sensitive test articles.

Systems can be scaled to meet range of application requirements, from eight channels in a ½ rack 1U footprint to 128 channels in 3U of rack space.

Closed loop resistance monitoring eliminates errors commonly introduced from aging and temperature drift, while the need for conversion algorithms is eliminated with direct programming of temperature values.
