Recording and playback analysis

The 900 Series Recording and Playback functionality has the ability to record data at up to 216k samples/second for review, export, post processing, or driving a shaker

Recording can be done simultaneously with real-time measurement or control and the recording sample rate can be independent of the measurement sample rate. Recorded data can be analyzed with any analysis type. 

Recording Features

Simultaneous Recording and Measurement

Measurements can be made during recording reducing the amount of time spent post-processing recorded data

Independent Recording Sample Rate

Recording sample rate can be same or different from measurement sample rate

Local Recording to Solid State Drive  

Local recording to solid state disk ensures the highest possible sample rate for gap-free recording

Circular Recording

Record the end of your vibration test – regardless of how long the test runs for

Recording of Drive and Math Channels

Drive (DAC) channels can be automatically recorded without requiring teeing the drive signal to an input channel, freeing up that channel for additional measurements

Streamlined Exporting

Export recordings during test execution, automatically on test end, or manually after test (Matlab, ASCII, UFF, DSF, CSV)

Multi Recorder Capability 

Record multiple time histories simultaneously each with their own sample rate 

User-Defined Triggering and Pacing for Analysis of Recorded Data

Triggering and pacing facilitates analysis of events within recorded data

Automatic Start and Stop Recording Using Events

Event-based start and stop recording ensures that the desired data is captured

Playback Features

Playback Analysis using the same user interface as live measurement

Use same user interface ensures that all of the features available for live measurements are available for playback analysis. The common interface simplifies the task of analyzing recorded data

Independent selection of channels for playback analysis 

Playback analysis can be performed on only the required channels from a multi-channel recording

Live graph of recorded time data with cursor during analysis 

Easily identify events in time data and set start and end of analysis time

Edit Time Histories

Cut, paste, splice, add ramps, filter and much more with the graphical Time History Recording Editor

Responsive Display and Comprehensive Playback Analysis

1 Playback Mode

Measurement panel mode can be switched from Acquisition to Playback to process recorded data in the same test

2 Playback Analysis Toolbar

Easy access to graphical tools such as zoom and channel increment

3 File Info

Provides all the relevant information such as sampling rate, recorded time, data length, # of channels, etc., of the selected file

4 Start and Stop Times

Easily identify events in time data and set start and stop processing times for analysis

5 Processing Speed

Processing can be done at a reduced speed (slower than recording speed) to view events as they happen or at a faster speed to save processing time

6 Playback Repeat Loop

Data can be looped and played back any number of times
