Product of the Month: The RVG200 Videographic Data Recorder

ABB, Warminster, PA, has introduced the RVG200 videographic data recorder with touchscreen technology. The recorder provides easy access to process data for onsite operators, while enabling secure remote access to the same data from any tablet, smartphone, PC, or other networked device. Using iconbased menus or by swiping through the screens, operators can find the process data they need and view it in formats such as individual or grouped charts, bar graphs, or digital indicator displays. The unit is integrated into a plant network through a 100-Mbit/s Ethernet connection. The recorder can notify operators via email of process alarms or critical process events, automatically sent to their PC or smartphone. It can also be configured to routinely email summary reports of process conditions. Up to 24 universal analog inputs enable direct connection of mA, mV, TC, RTD, voltage, and digital signals. Front and rear USB ports permit users to connect a variety of peripheral devices such as a USB memory drive.

Product of the Month: the GEN3i Portable Data Recorder

HBM, Marlborough, MA, has introduced the GEN3i portable data recorder, part of the Genesis High Speed line of data recorders. They are designed for laboratory, power test stands, and destructive material testing applications, as well as for generators, turbines, and engines. The recorder transfers data directly to the storage medium at speeds as high as 200 MB/s (one hundred million measured values per second). A user can employ 18 channels at 2 MS/s, producing 4 MB/s per channel. The 18 channels will produce 72 MB/s continuously until the 480- GB solid-state disk (SSD) is loaded. Users can select from 21 different data acquisition cards. The recorder can be equipped with isolated strain gauge or accelerometer signal conditioners, as well as ultra-high-speed cards offering sampling rates of 100 MS/s, or an isolated 1 kV data acquisition card with ±1000V direct inputs. It features up to 96 fully configurable input channels and an intuitive touchscreen that lets users access all data handling functions.
