If the application calls for reliable data acquisition and recording, Durham Instruments has the solution. The leading distributor carries HBM’s GEN3t transient recorder and data acquisition system, as well as its GEN3i high-speed portable data recorder. Both families are known for being robust, portable and, more importantly, reliable.
The GEN3i portable data recorder features hardware that combines a full-featured, low-power, Intel Core i5 third generation Windows PC with a large, high-resolution, touchscreen and a robust three-slot acquisition unit. The GEN3i has the same form factor as its predecessor GEN2i, but offers more channels (up to 96) and increased processing power (200 megabytes a second of continuous streaming). It comes with five different Windows languages and eight different Perception software languages pre-installed.
Designed for operation in the field or laboratory, the GEN3i features a unique panel interface with one-touch access to all features for daily operation. In addition, the GEN3i includes Perception Standard for post-processing. With a single touch, the data recorder turns into a dedicated instrument for analysis and reporting.
The GEN3t is a portable transient recorder and data acquisition system. It features a one-Gbit Ethernet interface that supports streaming recorded data directly to the PC at 100 megabytes a second. But for more demanding requirements, a variety of options are available. For example, a 10-Gbit electrical or optical Ethernet option is available for higher streaming rates of 400 megabytes a second. Or, when more reliable or distributed storage of recorded data is required, the GEN3t supports an optional built-in, non-removable solid-state disk or can directly store recorded data on an external Network Attached Storage (NAS) device.
To synchronize the absolute time to other systems, the GEN3t supports the PTP protocol. Full transparent time and trigger synchronization on multiple GEN DAQ systems can be done using the standard optical Master/Slave synchronization connector. For legacy or industrial systems, the GEN3t optionally supports IRIG A & B or GPS-based time synchronization.
The GEN3t is configured and controlled using Perception software, which must be purchased separately, and a user-provided PC. This combination results in a sophisticated instrument for ultra-fast recording, analysis and reporting.
