NASHUA, N.H., 24 Sept. 2011. Engineers at Cepoint Networks in Nashua, N.H., have introduced the company’s TransPAC-6300 rugged, transportable, data-acquisition computer with multiple input/output (I/O) options. The system, built and customizable for data acquisition in hostile or harsh environments, is available with up to 16 SE or 8 differential channels at 12/16-bit resolution, upgradeable to 128 channels and a wide gain range. The System is crafted with field-expandable PCI, PCI express, or legacy ISA BUS slots. Storage capacity extends up to 12 terabytes. Removable drive modules also are available.
TransPAC-6300 boasts self-calibrating features, making it well suited for vibration, pressure, and strain measurements, analog stimulus response, and acoustical testing. Customizable applications include: image acquisition and analysis, on-the-move radar acquisition and analysis, video conferencing, homeland security, and surveillance applications requiring transportability. The system also is well suited for use as an audio analysis, production testing, burn-in testing, QA/QC, lab, or factory mobile test unit system.
TransPAC-6300’s open architecture and expandable I/O slots are applicable for changing or growing test and measurements needs, spectrum analysis, and military PC-based systems for field use under different mission requirements.
The new system boasts a 3-gigahertz Intel processor, 24-gigabit memory capacity, a 15- or 17-inch TFT LCD, and Flash solid-state disk. TransPAC-6300 is also configurable with up to 256-bit DES encryption and decryption security, 24 volts DC or 48 volts DC power supply, and a wireless data modem capable of a 40-mile range in the 900-megahertz ISM band.
