Civil engineers constantly strive to improve the efficiency and stretch the boundaries
of modern structures. The challenges and difficulties of verifying new designs require
tools designed to provide the accuracy and performance needed to adapt scaled model
testing to real life structures.
Distributed Instruments - Save Wiring and Improve Accuracy
VTI’s distributed LXI-based instruments provide accurate synchronization across
10 to 10,000 channels for large structures like bridges, tunnels and pipelines.
This has expanded the field of civil engineering to enable more accurate instrumentation
normally associated with research and design laboratories. Whether strain gaging
a bridge for structural analysis, researching new construction materials,
or performing modal analysis on load-bearing structure, our
SentinelEX product series brings high accuracy, synchronization, and distributed
measurement capability back to your control center or SCADA for analysis/processing.
The Right Data - First Time, Every Time
With over 20 years of instrumentation design experience, VTI Instruments provides
its customers with peace of mind knowing that our products will deliver reliable,
accurate data year after year.
VTI is dedicated to improving customer testing capabilities through efforts to improve
the ease of test customization, accuracy of integrated designs, simplicity of software interface, and
the benefits of Ethernet for test and measurement. VTI cofounded the Ethernet based
LXI instrumentation platform, which is currently the fastest growing instrumentation
platform for test and measurement with over 60 members. LXI delivers the performance
and standardization needed for taking demanding measurements and extending product
Simplified Installation - TEDS
Structural tests often consume large amounts of resources and effort to prepare
the installation for test. Much of this time is spent confirming cabling identification.
Our EX1629 and EMX-5290 have Transducer Electronic Database (TEDs) included as standard functionality.
Depending on the number of channels, it will help eliminate days, weeks, or even
months from the installation process by allowing the installer to simply plug transducer
cables into the instrument without verifying channel position. Software configurable
interfaces eliminate the need for different types of hardware for strain gage installations.
Turnkey Solutions – VTI, the One-Stop-Shop
Our instruments can be integrated into almost any data acquisition software or SCADA
program using our open drivers. You can also use of our four dedicated measurement
software applications - X-Modal(modal analysis - partnership with U of Cincinnati),
SO Analyzer (full featured DSA), VTIcoda (high channel strain) or EXLab (”set up and go”).
Whether for supervisory control or research and development, our complete turnkey
solutions are your one-stop shop for all your civil engineering measurement needs.
Utilizing the power of our software, you can easily record and monitor data in real
time using a variety of graphics and tables. Other features include the ability
to analyze data, manage alarms and many exception conditions, and export data for
further detailed analysis or reporting.
We have proven experience in the following industries and can help architect the
right system that meets the application requirements:
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)
- Runways (and other paving platforms)
- Offshore platforms
- Support cradles
- Plant & machinery
- Cement cure
- Materials research
