July 30, 2018 ‚îÄ Pentek announced the Talon RTX 25xx series, a recorder product line for extreme operating environments. The sealed ½ ATR recorders are available with multiple input options and can hold up to 30.7 TB of removable SSD storage. These SFF recorders provide real-time streaming data rates of up to 4 GB/s for bandwidth RF or recording.
Engineered to operate in environments with high levels of shock and vibration, the RTX recorder's chassis keeps all electronics sealed from the external environment. The ½ 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 further seals the internal electronics from the outside environment by extracting 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, with all system electronics protected in the sealed chassis. The inner plenum can be replaced to provide other cooling options, such as liquid or conduction cooling.
Designed to operate from -40ºC to +60ºC, these recorders can handle most thermal environments, making them suited for UAV’s, aircraft pods, tight equipment bays, military vehicles and most outdoor environments.
