Pentek Introduces Affordable Talon Value Series Recorders with Quick Delivery
*Single-channel multiband recording and playback system *Provides 4 TB hot swappable storage *Real-time sustained recording and playback rates up to 400 MB/sec*Affordable recorder ships immediately from stock
The RTV 2601 represents Pentek’s best value in a single channel recording and playback system. Equipped with a 200 MHz, 16-bit A/D, it is ideal for recording signal bandwidths up to 80 MHz with over 80 dB of spurious free dynamic range (SFDR.) The 800 MHz, 16-bit D/A reproduces recorded signals and also serves as a powerful complex waveform generator.
Equipped with a 4 TB storage array, these 4U rackmount systems are ready for off-the-shelf delivery. “We often receive customer requests for quick delivery,” stated Chris Tojeira, product director of Recording Systems. “The popular, well-equipped configuration we chose for the RTV 2601 allows us to ship directly from stock. And, our cost-sensitive customers really appreciate a price tag under $20,000,” he added.
The RTV 2601 includes a user-programmable digital downconverter (DDC) and digital upconverter (DUC), for recording and playing back signals with bandwidths ranging from a few kHz up to 80 MHz. Flexible center frequency tuning handles IF signals as high as 700 MHz. Providing 4 TB of data storage, the six hot-swappable front-panel disk drives can be easily replaced by empty drives when full.
Ease of Operation
All Talon recorders are built on a Windows 7 Professional workstation and include Pentek’s SystemFlow software, featuring a GUI (graphical user interface) and API (Application Programming Interface). The GUI provides intuitive controls for out-of-the-box turn-key operation using point-and-click configuration management. Configurations can be easily stored and recalled for single-click setup. The GUI also includes a virtual oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer to monitor signals before, during and after data collection. The C-callable API allows users to integrate the recorder control into larger application systems.
Pentek provides a Talon Recording System Simulator for evaluation of the SystemFlow software package. This free trial package is available for download at: http://www.pentek.com/
