SAN DIEGO, CA (January 5, 2021) – AMETEK Programmable Power is the global leader in programmable AC and DC power test solutions and is home to VTI Instruments which is an industry leader in Data Acquisition and ATE/Electronic Functional Test.

Today VTI Instruments is excited to introduce the EX1403A strain instrument which includes voltage and resistance measurement capabilities. The EX1403A is based on a flexible data acquisition platform that offers superior signal integrity which is unmatched anywhere else on the market. The EX1403A’s industry leading measurement performance offers consistent repeatability that customers have come to expect from VTI Instruments. The EX1403A is a continued reflection of that expectation.

In addition to superior signal integrity, the EX1403A also comes with even more features and benefits which customers are sure to utilize and appreciate. Some include:
- Ethernet/LXI interface which eases instrument communication
- Seamless scalability from small to large channel-count systems.
- IEEE 1588 (PTP) and POE capability to improve the ability to distribute instruments for added flexibility
- Plug and Play Ready.
- Unbeatable value/performance ratio.

“The EX1403A is absolutely founded on the concept of delivering superior signal integrity for our customer applications”, said Sangram Gaikwad, VP of Technology & Strategy at VTI Instruments. “As a result of that motivation coming through on the construction of this product, we’re able to produce a product which is highly accurate, reliable and works with all bridge/strain, voltage and resistance (2 or 4 wire method) measurements.”
