UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. – Pentek Inc. in Upper Saddle River, N.J., is introducing the model RTR 2757 4U 19-inch rackmount data recorder for use in rugged aerospace and defense applications.

The RTR 2757 can capture these streams in real time at rates as fast as 12.5 gigabytes per second. It includes as much as 122 terabytes of NVMe data storage.

Drives are front-panel removable via eight individual drive trays. The independent operating system drive is also removable via the front panel. This architecture improves the recording speed by fifty percent over previous generations of Talon recorders.

The industrial-grade 4U rackmount chassis houses a dual Xeon server-class motherboard optimized for cooling and ruggedized to operate in rugged environments. A QSFP28 optical port supports as many as four independent UDP streams for a combined real-time recording rate as fast as 12.5 gigabits per second.

This enables users to stream data from four A/D channels over 100 Gigabit Ethernet and capture them as independent files on the recorder.

The recorder uses Microsoft Windows and includes Pentek’s SystemFlow software, with intuitive controls for out-of-the-box operation using point-and-click configuration management.

The rackmount system's data storage format follows the NTFS standard to enable users to remove drives and read data with Windows. For more information contact Pentek online at
