HBM, Inc. has added to its Genesis High Speed line of data recorders with the new portable GEN3i data recorder intended for laboratory, power test stands and destructive material testing applications as well as for generators, turbines and engines. Unlike other systems that require time-consuming or cumbersome configuration and set-up, the GEN3i is ready to run out of the box.
The GEN3istands out because it transfers data directly to the storage medium at speeds as high as 200 MB/s (one hundred million measured values per second) —faster than any comparable unit in industry. For example, say a user employs 18 channels at 2 MS/s, producing 4 MB/s per channel. The 18 channels will produce72 MB/s continuously until the 480 GB solid state disk (SSD) is loaded, a capability no other recorder can match.
Users can select from 21 different data acquisition cards. The GEN3i can be equipped with isolated strain gauge or accelerometer signal conditioners as well as ultra-high speed cards offering sampling rates of100 MS/s or an isolated 1 kV data acquisition card with ± 1000 V direct inputs. The GEN3i features up to 96 fully configurable input channels. A large, intuitive touchscreen lets users easily access all of their data handling functions.
