RUGGED CHASSIS: Pentek chooses rugged chassis from Themis for rugged signal recorder

Solid-state storage experts at Pentek Inc. in Upper Saddle River, N.J., needed a rugged chassis for the company's model RTX 2786 Extreme Talon IF digital signal recorder and playback system. They found their solution at Themis Computer in Fremont, Calif.

The Pentek model RTX 2786 is a configurable, multichannel system with a compact, conduction-cooled half-ATR chassis and as much as 1.92 terabytes of solid-state RAID storage for sustained recording rates to 500 megabytes per second.

Signal recordings are stored in the native Windows NTFS format for use by PCs and applications without the need for post-recording file conversion. The RTX 2786 digitizes and records several analog input channels using 200 MHz 16-bit A/D converters. The system can capture as much as 80 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth for IF signals up to 700 MHz.
