New Media Storage Format Set to Revolutionize Instrumentation Data Recording and Analysis
Montebello, Calif.---TEAC Corporation, a world leader in the development and manufacture of advanced recording technologies, is proud to announce the introduction of the new solid-state LX-Series instrumentation data recorders. The new LX-Series data recorders offer noise and vibration engineers and technicians the unprecedented use of solid-state recording media to acquire, store, and retrieve valuable test data.
"The use of removable solid-state media completely revolutionizes the way in which noise and vibration engineers can now record, process and archive dynamic data," says Steve Astulfi, TEAC Instrumentation Data Recorders National Sales Manager. "One of the prime advantages of using solid-state, file-formatted media is the fast transfer of digital data to PC for analysis. This eliminates the tedious, one-to-one, recording-to-transfer time of downloading data from most tape-based systems. With PC Flash-Card media, users can simply remove the card and plug it into a computer or download via Ethernet or FireWire for data analysis and archiving."
Weighing less than 10 pounds with a compact 12 in. x 2.5 in. x 8 in. footprint, LX-Series recorders are tested to MIL-810E for operation in harsh shock and vibration environments. LX-Series recorders also provide users a diverse set of connections to popular data analysis applications for improved efficiency in data recording and information processing. Using the constant current excitation input amp card, users can connect constant current accelerometers and microphones directly to an LX-Series recorder, reducing the need to field additional equipment. With TEDS connectivity, LX recorders can read transducer sensitivity and calibration values, eliminating set-up errors and reducing test preparation and data processing time.
LX-Series recorders also feature the ability to record eight channels, each with a bandwidth of 20 kHz, at 48 kHz sampling frequency, which is double the recording performance of traditional DAT data recorders. Moreover, the provided four channels at 40 kHz-bandwidth selection found on the LX-Series is a feature that is unavailable on DAT recorders. With additional input amplifier cards, users can record 16 channels at 10 kHz each, or 32 data channels at 5 kHz bandwidth per channel. All channels can be selected during set-up for single-ended or differential input.
LX-Series recorders feature a variety of start/stop trigger modes allowing the efficient use of valuable recording time and media. By implementing any one of the numerous trigger modes, the units will capture only the data relevant to the required test parameters. LX-Series units also support file formats for a variety of data analysis software packages enabling quick data file review and analysis.
