Vector Measurement Controller


Model: ELE-VMC

The NSI-MI Vector Measurement Controller (VMC) is a master timing controller for complex electronic measurement and data acquisition. It can be used for fast on-the-fly electronic testing, precisely coordinated with mechanical motion or other controlled or monitored test attributes. As an enhancement to NSI-MI’s Vector Field AnalyzerTM, the VMC provides comprehensive support of electronically steerable and digital antennas for automated testing. A complete set of selectable trigger and data inputs and outputs gives the VMC the ability to control practically any device or instrument with precise timing resolution.
