Upper Saddle River, NJ - February 20, 2018 - Pentek, Inc., today announced the Talon RTR 254x series, a new high performance small form factor (SFF) recorder product line for analog IF/RF signals. Optimized for SWaP (size, weight and power), the Pentek Talon RTR SFF product line provides the performance and storage capacity previously only possible in much larger rack-mountable products. Measuring 5.25" H x 8.5" W x 14" D and weighing only 17 pounds, this small package is capable of sustained real-time recording speeds up to 4 GB/s and can hold up to 30.7 TB of removable SSD storage. Power consumption has been greatly reduced with most systems drawing less than 120 W at full operation.
The Talon RTR 254x supports Pentek's extensive line of RF/IF I/O modules, providing multi-channel, wide-bandwidth RF recording with A/D sample rates ranging from 200 MS/sec to 3.6 GS/sec. An integrated high speed RAID controller is coupled with enterprise class SSDs for hours of real-time, wide bandwidth data capture.
Up to eight hot-swap SSDs deliver a total storage capacity up to 30.7 TB with support for RAID levels 0, 5 or 6. All eight SSD data drives and the single operating system SSD can be easily removed from front panel drive bays in seconds. Drives are mounted on sleds for easy transfer to an offload system so the recorder can remain installed while data is transported to the lab.
"The Talon RTR Small Form Factor product line dramatically reduces all SWaP variables without sacrificing performance," said Rodger Hosking, vice-president of Pentek. "This opens up many new wide-band signal acquisition applications never before possible in tight spaces and small equipment bays."
Talon recorders are built on Windows OS with an Intel Core i7 processor and provide both a Windows-based GUI (graphical user interface) and API (Application Programmer's Interface) to control the system. All Talon RTR 254x recorders include Pentek's SystemFlow® recording software which includes signal viewing and analysis tools so the user can monitor input signals signal prior to, during, and after a recording session. These tools include a virtual oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer and spectrogram displays. SystemFlow provides point-and-click configuration management and storage of custom configurations for single-click setup. A user API allows custom recorder control interfaces to be easily built. Users can install post-processing and analysis tools to operate on the data that is saved to the native NTFS file system.
The Talon SFF recorders offer an optional GPS receiver for precise time and position stamping. An ATX power supply accepts 110V-240V AC, drawing under 150W and typically around 100W. Models have options for a 6-30 VDC power supply and a removable operating system drive. Several options for RF/IF analog inputs are available. I/O on all models includes USB 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1 ports and dual Gigabit Ethernet connections.
Pentek's SystemFlow Simulator provides a "test drive" of the SystemFlow recording software installed on all Talon recording systems. The simulator allows users to operate the standard GUI and the SystemFlow API. The free trial package is available for download here.
Pentek's Talon Recording Systems are high-speed recording and playback systems capable of streaming data to disk in real time. They are available in portable, rackmount and small form factor configurations, allowing operation in a variety of environments.
