Single-channel multiband recording and playback system.

Pentek has introduced the first member of the Talon® recorder series, the Model RTV 2601 single-channel multiband recording and playback system. This recorder is part of the new Talon Value Series of rackmount recorders for laboratory and benign environments.

The RTV 2601 represents Pentek’s best value in a single channel recording and playback system. Equipped with a 200 MHz, 16-bit A/D, it is ideal for recording signal bandwidths up to 80 MHz with over 80 dB of spurious free dynamic range (SFDR.) The 800 MHz, 16-bit D/A reproduces recorded signals and also serves as a powerful complex waveform generator.

Equipped with a 4 TB storage array, these 4U rackmount systems are ready for off-the-shelf delivery. “We often receive customer requests for quick delivery,” stated Chris Tojeira, product director of Recording Systems. “The popular, well-equipped configuration we chose for the RTV 2601 allows us to ship directly from stock. And, our cost-sensitive customers really appreciate a price tag under $20,000.”

The RTV 2601 includes a user-programmable digital downconverter (DDC) and digital upconverter (DUC), for recording and playing back signals with bandwidths ranging from a few kHz up to 80 MHz. Flexible center frequency tuning handles IF signals as high as 700 MHz. Providing 4 TB of data storage, the six hot-swappable front-panel disk drives can be easily replaced by empty drives when full.

Ease of Operation
All Talon recorders are built on a Windows 7 Professional workstation and include Pentek’s SystemFlow software, featuring a GUI (graphical user interface) and API (Application Programming Interface). The GUI provides intuitive controls for out-of-the-box turn-key operation using point-and-click configuration management. Configurations can be easily stored and recalled for single-click setup. The GUI also includes a virtual oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer to monitor signals before, during and after data collection. The C-callable API allows users to integrate the recorder control into larger application systems.

Pentek provides a Talon Recording System Simulator for evaluation of the SystemFlow software package.
