VTI Instruments - PXIe Chassis

VTI Instruments - PXIe Chassis
The PXIe chassis include 18-slot chassis (CMX18 and CMX18A) and 9-slot chassis, pictured (CMX09 and CMX09A)


At VTI, we manufacture chassis that are compatible with all PXI Express and PXI hybrid cards. Our products are easily scaled from tabletop size to many rack units, and many of our PXI Express chassis can handle data speeds up to 8 GB/s.

VTI PXI Advantages

VTI is the first choice for mission critical applications or applications where the cost of test is high and failure is not an option. Applications include missile system testing and solid rocket motor testing. This is because our products are recognized in the industry for their reliability and are designed with built-in capabilities to maximize measurement confidence. Simply put, if you need equipment that is going to give you the results you need, contact us to get started.

Customers expect the test systems to last at least as long as the products they test. This can especially be a challenge in the aerospace and defense industries where products typically last more than a decade. This is why every VTI product is designed to minimize obsolescence risks and guarantee long-term support.

For our PXIe chassis and PXIe subsystems in particular, we ensure that our equipment is resistant to obsolescence by utilizing system-on-chip (SoC) architectures. We don’t have to be dependent on the continuing availability of controller chips from other manufacturers.

Precision and Performance
VTI's strength is in hardware and our products are designed to maximize accuracy, precision, and performance. The types of industries that utilize our products reflect this. Our data acquisition systems are used in applications such as jet engine testing, aircraft structural testing, and satellite testing.

Hybrid Test System Support
Test systems often leverage the strengths of multiple instrumentation platforms in order to arrive at the best performing or most cost-effective solution. VTI's PXI Express products are uniquely designed to simplify integration with other platforms.
