Continuous Streaming to Disk
Synergy’s distributed processing hardware captures data directly to a Windows® internal hard drive or external PC via Gigabit Ethernet at speeds of up to 500 kS/s per channel regardless of the number of channels. With virtually unlimited record lengths and reserve bandwidth for streaming video and audio, you never need to worry about running out of disk space. Larger capacity drives and removable RAID or USB Flash can further extend acquisition performance. Synergy can capture weeks of continuous data with annotation and storage. Data is stored directly to Windows disk, eliminating the requirement for lengthy conversion from proprietary hardware post acquisition. Other direct to disk systems can literally take hours to convert acquired data from a proprietary format to usable data.
Hi-Techniques’ ClearVU technology tracks max, min and mean values for all channels in real time, so you know in an instant if a channel goes off scale or a lead breaks. This thumbnail statistical information is also stored in the data file to provide instant review of even multi-Gigabyte files. In addition, a summary report for immediate test validation is available at a keystroke.
A full-disk circular-buffer allows for slow background recording until an event is detected at which point sample rate is accelerated to ensure maximum sample resolution only on the points of interest. Quickly mark interesting data with text or voice using the touchscreen interface or integrated microphone input. Playback your recordings to the screen or as a sound channel utilizing the PC sound interface. Scroll through long files with the convenient jog-shuttle knob, or use the Search functions to quickly locate events of interest.
The integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch allows two networks to be supported at the same time. Connect to your corporate network while simultaneously streaming data on the other Ethernet port to an external PC or data storage device.
