Acq_Mat1432 Prerequisites:


Supported VXI Modules:


  VTI Instruments Logo


  • VTI Instrument's VT1432A / B, VT1433B, VT1434A, VT1435A or VT1436A Input  Modules (ADC's)
  • or Hewlett-Packard/Agilent E1432A, E1433B or E1434A Modules.

For RPM Run-Up Measurements or Order Tracking one needs a Tachometer Option AYF

Time Measurements where RPM values are wanted  also needs Tachometer Option AYF

For most all Acq_Mat Options one needs a source module: Option 1D4 or VT1434A or HP/Agilent E1434A

General Requirements:

  • Host computer with an IEEE 1394 Firewire Interface or 1 Gigabit LAN EX2500A Interface.

  • Microsoft Windows 7 (32 bit), Microsoft Windows Vista (32 bit), Win XP; Recommended Host RAM:  1000MB or more with higher channel counts

  • Microsoft Excel required (For importing Point and Direction Lists or Channel Parameters).



  • We chose the MATLAB® environment for Acq_Mat because leveraging this mathematical and graphic environment  provides a robust turnkey solution that reduced development and debugging time. The user can also easily perform additional data analysis on all data obtained and create custom graphs from within this MATLAB® environment.

  • We chose the VTI Instruments' hardware platform because it is a stable, scalable, high performance measurement system with a good interface to PCs.   The hardware is reasonably portable and can be controlled by a laptop or desktop computer with impressive performance.  You are also not limited to one vendor’s software solution.
