Data Recorders offer multi-channel analog and bus recording.

Press Release Summary:

Models GSR20f and GSR200f are ground station and test cell recorders that capture vibration data created from fatigue and crash testing of industrial stuctures and components. They feature all digital recording, signal interfacing, and interchangeable media. Rack-mounted, Model GSR200f provides 240 Mbit/s recording, while Model GSR20f offers 20 Mbit/s capability. Both have plug-in media cartridges that accept tape, disk, or solid-state drives.

Original Press Release:

Heim Data Systems, Inc. Introduces the GSR Series High Bit Rate Recorders

Heim Data Systems, Inc., a leading supplier of data acquisition equipment, introduces the new GSR20f and GSR200f, ground station and test cell recorders, which capture vibration data created from fatigue and crash testing of various industrial structures and components. Ideal for multi-channel analog and bus recording, the easy to use GSR20f and GSR200f feature all digital recording, high data integrity, signal interfacing and interchangeable media.

Heim Data's versatile GSR20f and GSR200f have plug-in media cartridges that accept tape, disk or solid state drives at any time during the life of the equipment. Media can be exchanged in seconds, providing flexibility to optimally match the media to each individual application and provide superb support capability and security. The media cartridges offer standard SCSI interfacing, allowing the system to act as a front-end multiplexer to any other external media/drive having compatible protocol.

The GSR200f is an economical, rack-mounting, 240 Mbit/s digital recorder capable of simultaneously acquiring multiple streams of data from ground, airborne and satellite data and telemetry sources and recording them to a storage media for later retrieval and analysis. Data retrieval may be via real time reconstruction of the original sources or by direct high speed transfer of digital data to the user's computing platform.

The GSR20f is a similar system with 20 Mbit/s capability for applications requiring lower data rates. Applications include acquisition of digital, analog and avionics bus sources and ground replay of media originally recorded in rugged mobile recorders.

With their read-after-write technology, both recorders ensure high data integrity and accurate channel-to-channel time relationships. The integrated IRIG time code generator/reader provides accurate data time tagging and precise synchronism with external IRIG and GPS time sources. The system's front panel controls provide optimum ergonomics for ground-based operations, including permanent time display, fast search access, automatic calibrations and system check.

An optional built-in PC allows flexible interfacing to networks and other interfaces for data distribution, and can provide an integrated platform for signal display and analysis applications. A built-in SCSI (GSR20f) or Ethernet (GSR200f) interface supported with available GUI applications and driver libraries allows high speed digital download of data direct to local and remote analysis platforms. The mainframe has 6 signal module slots that can accommodate any combination of existing and future D Series signal interface modules, including analog, MIL-1553, PCM, ARINC429, Ethernet, voice, serial, video and others.
