UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. – Pentek Inc. in Upper Saddle River, N.J., is introducing the rugged Talon RTX 25xx series high-performance small-form-factor (SFF) digital data recorder for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), aircraft pods, tight equipment bays, military vehicles, and most outdoor environments.
Optimized for low size, weight and power (SWaP), the rugged sealed half ATR recorders are available with several input options and can hold as much as 30.7 terabytes of removable solid-state drive (SSD) storage.
Designed to operate in temperatures from -40 to 60 degrees Celsius, these recorders provide real-time streaming data rates as fast as four gigabytes per second for ultra-wide bandwidth RF or high-speed recording.
Engineered to operate in tough environments with high levels of shock and vibration, the RTX recorder's chassis keeps all electronics sealed from the external environment. The half ATR chassis uses military standard circular connectors for I/O to control RF emissions while protecting the recorder's electronics from humidity, water, dust, sand, and salt fog.
The Talon RTX SFF chassis extracts heat through conduction to an inner plenum that is air cooled. A thermostat-controlled, removable fan pulls air into the front of the chassis, through the plenum, and then out the back of the chassis. Only the fan is exposed to the outside environment. The inner plenum can be replaced to provide other cooling options like liquid or conduction cooling.
Pentek's QuickPac drive pack is removable from the recorder by loosening thumb screws on the front panel. A companion offload system for the QuickPac drive pack is available so the recorder can remain in use while the recorded data is transported and reviewed. The QuickPac drive pack holds as much as 30.7 terabytes of SSD storage and supports RAID levels 0, 5 or 6.
For secure applications, a separate operating system drive can be removed, allowing users to extract all non-volatile memory from the system in just a few seconds.
