Pentek's RTR 2746 Offers Ruggedized Real-Time Analog Recording and Analysis for Unmanned Vehicles



Only talking about Pentax move. This acquisitions as a group -- did he tell us. First of a little bit about the company sure and tech has designed and built data acquisition -- 25 years now we've also couple these highly. Two DSP resources and PGA resources. And what we're doing here is taking a very powerful front end boards and cobalt product line based on -- six. That has. 200 megahertz sixteen -- the converter. And delivering that data through a system on too hard disk that's what this record just us. It so I can record up to one point six gigabytes per second. Using as many as word channels. -- these and we're channels anyways story 88 of these only glory yeah he's always. It didn't -- converters we use our one point 25 gigabytes. Big example the second devices. So not only can. That -- today that -- -- the we can reproduce. The whole thing about the system. Is that the data goes directly into the system memory and then goes directly from the system memory to the raid controllers of the CPU doesn't touch. David at all. And running windows. Professional. Set Windows 7 professional 64 bit operating system. But the data itself has moved entirely with hardware do you make controller engines. So we can maintain guarantee absolute real time reporting without a loss of one. Bit of data at up to one point six gigabytes per second. We are using in this system because of organized system we're using solid state drives we have a 48 drives each of them it's -- 500 gigabytes. So we have the total capacity of 24. Terabytes of storage on this planet like. This platform is good for rugged environment like aircraft. Like land vehicles that perhaps during operation they're going -- After rain and more on ownership. Or any place where there's extremes in temperature and vibration. Shock this toward. -- this this bucks an ideal candidate for. The other nice thing about the package is that. This particular system is divided into a client server software architecture. The server hardest part does -- work that hard can be located in the different place from the client and those -- can be joined together. -- ethernet or into. So you can have this system for example vaulted into the equipment -- and aircraft. And then have the cockpit computer be the client so that the the operator can be exciting and the pilot's seat and the great acquisition of real time. Transfer pushing them back sort -- back he's back here. The solid state drives are removable front panel solar. Because that's the good people -- four terabytes in each side so when that David is like it was. Explored that they can be then we moved very quickly with a new pressures that are put in to start another. -- One of the significant thing about -- system. Is that they -- the data that's being reported it's reported in its. NT FS file system. So that any windows application any immediately -- violations of so for example if you recorded volume model I'm. It's right there and ready to go. So it really gives the polls apart he didn't make it either way and -- acquisition on. Coupled with the new solid state drive technology news. And we're very fast PCI express and interconnect between all of them it kind of put itself together very nice. Ready to use. Very impressive and -- -- we have some of the boards and those are some that are inside the system yeah. So -- the heart of the data acquisitions systems and an ambulance -- -- 2746. Is this global market it was an accident scene module features. -- 200 -- out for a second season that he -- the conservatives in the front and it has sabretech. PGA. That manages all of the resources on the word and it has two connectors one of these Hughes. Wore any by any PCI express their minds with the consent. Important data up to two or four gigabytes per second into the system. So this is the basic engine if you -- data acquisition. And this board is attached. To this board which is a PCI express carrier -- it. Together. They form a PCI express module plugs right in June. These. Server motherboard using the -- thing yeah. Yeah so this is what's the this is big and -- Front -- that you want. Especially if it doesn't matter here what we're showing us we're showing the actual connectors and you can -- NN. And we have analog inputs analogue output and the clock signals we also. Don't have any digital connector that used to synchronized multiple boards. And tissue having multi boards system you can run ribbon cables crossed the front -- -- yet knowing what I call -- Indian deeply channels -- sequence. When we also several indicators that help you monitor the operation. So here we have the RTR. 2746. Rugged recorder chassis system. And in the front which you can see our in this case to drive cassettes. Each of these drive cassettes to hold a solid state drives. Each of those drives 500 gigabytes so each each of these assets represent toward terabytes where. Storage and you can get as many as six of these on this system the 24 terabytes. -- So. The whole. The whole idea here is that once the data as we. We can be easily removed by removing his -- it's -- up but this we. And keep this -- And inside we have -- PC server motherboard running windows and we have a graphical user interface which. Our system pulls -- the client side of this system most software did you -- complete graphical user interface that allows you. -- figure every aspect of it. You can change parameters. Simply by opening up parameter window and -- sampling rate. And then once you're done if you have pre configured the system you can save that profile. To a file name and then we. All that configuration later you can also load new profiles that you've stored before to give you complete recording system setup. Once you get done setting up your parameters. -- then go to the record screen in this case we have a record. Function where we have the three channels. And a nice feature is you can for example. Have independent recording and each channel. And you simply specify the file name the time or the length of the recording and megabytes and then hit the record button. And you can see the number of megabytes and the rate. And it can either record for a certain specific length of time or you can do it manually in which his record forever until that this is well. If you have multiple channels for example channel one and two you can -- them together to a master record function in which case. The recording is started up here instead and if you notice down here. Both of these channels are now reporting and the recordings synchronous please -- this is great for multi channel operations -- synchronous recording and you need to. Stop data seamlessly as well. So the other thing that's nice about the systems that give you a signal -- -- option that allows you to preview the allied signal. Before you start the recording to make sure it's ballot. So I'm I've got a signal generator in the back to fight disconnected you can see the signal goes away so this is actually the -- signal that is being recorded when you hit the record book. When we get done we have a similar screen that's -- while you -- that allows you to play back the record -- signal. Just like this is as well thank you could record so it's a really complete instrument. And all of these functions that numbers showing you here. Are part of the system -- client that can be remotely located on a different computer connected by ethernet -- Excellent so if they like to find out more about Pentax. Or its modules and systems we're gonna find you online. It's an easy website remembers. Penn tech dot com PE NT DK dot com. And right on our home page they'll be a link for the recording system just talk about thanks very much shorter thanks bill.
