Thermocouple measurement instrument with military-grade connectors
VTI Instruments’ RX1032 rugged thermocouple measurement instrument is designed to provide thermocouple measurement accuracy and acquisition rates and is configured in a rugged compact form factor that makes this instrument ideal for use in demanding environments. The RX1032’s rugged construction allows the measurement system to be mounted on test pylons, making it ideal for a wide range of applications, including large scale engine test, health monitoring, HALT/HASS, rocket motor reliability and wind tunnel tests. It has strong temperature accuracy (±0.12°C), data acquisition rates (1000 samples/sec/channel), and a wide operating range from -40 to 70°C. Military-grade connectors ensure reliable power and network connectivity, while all thermocouple and sensor inputs are routed through a protected quick release panel for easy access. Multiple RX1032 instruments can easily be distributed and synchronized using IEEE-1588 timestamp codes with typical accuracies of <200µS, ensuring that the acquired data is tightly correlated across the entire test article. The common EX10xx application programming interface (API) allows software developed for the laboratory to be seamlessly transported for use in the test cell.
