Pentek Expands Talon Value Series Recorders with a New Serial FPDP System

*Serial FPDP rackmount 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

UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ─June 15, 2015─Pentek, Inc. today introduced a new addition to the Talon® Value Series of recorders, the Model RTV 2602 Serial FPDP recording and playback system. This new recorder extends the Talon Value Series of rackmount recorders that are optimized for laboratory operating environments.

The RTV 2602 supports up to four independently clocked Serial FPDP links using copper or optical cables with single-mode or multimode fibre with flexible baud rate selection to support virtually all popular Serial FPDP interfaces. It is capable of both receiving and transmitting data over these links and supports real-time data storage to disk and playback from disk. Up to four channels can be recorded or played back simultaneously with an aggregate rate of up to 400 MB/ sec. Providing 4 TB of data storage, the six enterprise-class, hot-swappable front-panel disk drives can be easily replaced by empty drives when full.

“We offer the same high performance software package featured on all of our recorders,” stated Chris Tojeira, product director of Recording Systems, “The RTV 2602 ships directly from stock, allowing us to satisfy customers with urgent requirements at a fraction of the cost of many alternative solutions.”

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), signal viewer, 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 are easily stored and recalled for single-click setup. User settings to configure data format for the signal viewer provide 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.
