GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms has announced the DDR-300 digital data recorder and the DSC-300 signal conditioner.

Both are designed for use in harsh environments that are subject to extremes of heat, vibration and shock (the DDR-300 meets the MIL-STD-810F standard), conditions which prohibit the use of conventional rackmount units.

The DDR-300 and DSC-300 are rugged, compact and lightweight, allowing them to be field-deployed in space- and weight-constrained environments such as aircraft and tanks, and in dangerous testing environments that require the units to be nearby.

For applications in which data from numerous sensors must be processed, a primary requirement is to ‘condition’ the incoming signal – amplifying it, for example – before it can be processed.

In many applications, the requirement also exists to capture multiple parallel streams of incoming data at very high speeds for subsequent analysis.

Such applications include test environments with NVH (noise, vibration, harshness), and munitions testing, and the DDR-300 and DSC-300 are suited to these environments.

A complete, self-contained, ready-to-run field-deployable unit, the rugged DDR-300 32-channel or 64-channel digital data recorder includes an integral 15in XGA TFT display, USB keyboard and mouse, integrated stereo speakers and support for up to 2.5 Terabytes of high-speed (up to 100 Mbytes/s) 7,200rpm SATA disk storage, which may optionally be implemented in a RAID configuration.

It features a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2 Gbytes of system memory.

Housed in a magnesium chassis enclosed within a fibre-reinforced polycarbonate housing, the DDR-300 offers expansion slots for two full-size and two half-length PCI cards and a combination AC/DC power supply.

Optionally available are a UPS battery, removable hard disk storage and rack mounting.

It weighs less than 11.3kg.

The rugged DSC-300 8-channel signal conditioning module weighs less than 2.3kg, and is capable of handling analogue or digital signals, and differential or single-ended inputs.

Gain is selectable up to x 1000 per channel, with a bandwidth of 200kHz at gains of up to x 100.

It features a built-in buffered output monitor, together with a reference input for calibration, and supports voltage, bridge and ICP (integrated circuit piezoelectric) inputs.
