8-Channel RF/IF 200 MS/sec Rugged Rack-mount Recorder
Model 2746 General Information
The Talon® RTS 2746 is a turnkey, multiband record and playback system that is built to operate under harsh conditions. Designed to withstand high vibration and operating temperatures, the RTR 2746 is intended for military, airborne and UAV applications requiring a rugged system. With scalable A/Ds, D/As and SSD storage, the RTR 2746 can be configured to stream data to and from disk at rates as high as 1600 MB/sec.
The RTR 2746 uses Pentek's high-powered Virtex-6-based Cobalt® boards, that provide flexibility in channel count with optional digital downconversion capabilities. Optional 16-bit, 800 MHz D/A converters with digital upconversion allow real-time reproduction of recorded signals.
The RTR 2746 includes the SystemFlow® recording software. SystemFlow features a Windows-based GUI that provides a simple means to configure and control the system. Custom configurations can be stored as profiles and later loaded when needed, allowing the user to select preconfigured settings with a single click.
SystemFlow also includes signal viewing and analysis tools, that allow the user to monitor the signal prior to, during, and after a recording session. These tools include a virtual oscilloscope and a virtual spectrum analyzer.
Built on a Windows 7 Professional workstation, the RTR 2746 allows the user to install post processing and analysis tools to operate on the recorded data. The RTR 2746 records data to the native NTFS file system, providing immediate access to the recorded data. The recorder can be configured with up to six data drive packs, each containing up to eight SSDs.
This feature allows for instant removal of acquired data by simply removing the drive packs for remote copying and analysis. For installations that demand a minimum of downtime, new drive packs can be immediately swapped for the removed ones.
Designed for Harsh Environments
The RTR 2746 is delivered in a 4U 19" rugged rack-mountable chassis. Designed to MIL-STD-810F, it is built to survive shock and vibration. Stress to the motherboard and CPU heatsink is mitigated by multiple attachment points to stabilize the PCB. All fasteners and connectors are retained with locking mechanisms and shock-isolated drive bays.
High-speed, high-volume, thermally- controlled fans offer maximum airflow and are designed for long life. Additionally, extended temperature operation is possible with an optional high-temperature CPU.
