HBM - a market leader in the field of test and measurement - is pleased to announce the arrival of its GEN7tA HighSpeed Transient Recorder and Data Acquisition System, which is the latest and fastest addition to its Genesis HighSpeed range.

Leading on from the prestigious GEN7i, the GEN7tA is a premium system which has been further enhanced to support a maximum of up to 224 channels and handle a streaming rate of 400 MB/s to its hard disk.

The new hardware from HBM, which features a high resolution touch screen and a robust seven-slot acquisition unit opens the door to a range of possibilities including, individual configurations, connecting strain gauges (SG), direct measurements of voltage signals up to 1000V or even extremely fast measurements with 100 million measured values per second and channel.

Featuring three connections for digital outputs, timers/counters, which can be used to connect up to six torque transducers for acquiring torque and rotational speed, the GEN7tA has been designed for easy integration into a 19-inch rack, a very practical feature for test bench applications.

The GEN7tA is available with the latest full Perception software options, which are pre-installed on the system. Designed for fast and reliable processing of large quantities of data, Perception software is ideal for high-speed data acquisition. By allowing ten gigabytes of data to be visualised within ten seconds, 'live' data feeds enable users to keep up to date on the status of measurements. This unique software also allows users to access saved data, even during running measurements whilst recording continues in the background.

Depending on the selected operating mode of the GEN7tA - continuous or transient - measurement data can also be initially buffered in high speed RAM on the input card, to offer transient recording without any throughput limitations, or transferred directly to the internal DDD. It can also be stored on to the optional removable disc or transferred to an external PC or to an NAS (Network Attached Storage), to enhance security.

The GEN7tA, which supports the Precision Time Protocol, can be easily integrated into a system with other devices without difficulty, if required. This also makes it possible to synchronise the times of multiple devices networked via Ethernet, regardless of the product family.

The new GEN7tA High Speed Transient Recorder and Data Acquisition System from HBM offers a virtually unlimited range of application possibilities, both in the field and in the laboratory. Setting faster than ever performance and usability benchmarks in the marketplace, the GEN7tA offers unmatched DAQ and transient recording capabilities in one simple solution.

The Genesis HighSpeed range of Transient Recorders and Data Acquisition Systems share the highest sample rates and mid to high channel counts. Based on modular platforms, all models can be configured to the need of the application, be it a single channel or a thousand. All systems in the Genesis HighSpeed range from HBM are available out-of-the-box and ready to use immediately.

Founded in Germany in 1950, HBM is today the technology and market leader in the field of test and measurement. HBM's product range comprises solutions for the entire measurement chain, from virtual to physical testing. The company has production facilities in Germany, USA and China and is represented in over 80 countries worldwide.
