Astro-Med Introduces New TMX High-Speed Data Acquisition System

TMX Data Acquisition System Delivers Industry Leading Efficiency for Data Recording and Analysis With 96 Channels

WEST WARWICK, RI--(Marketwire - April 14, 2010) - Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), a world leader in the data acquisition and recording market, today introduced its new TMX™ High Speed Data Acquisition System, offering best in class efficiency for general purpose data capture, review, archive, and analysis. The TMX features 96 channels of data recording to a 1 TByte hard drive dedicated solely to data capture, allowing for data to be recorded for months on end in one single file.

"Information that would typically take hours to extract is now available in minutes, and in many cases, even in real-time," said Pete Nadeau, Product Manager of the Astro-Med Test & Measurement Group. "With its advanced processing technology, the TMX data acquisition system solves one of the biggest challenges in the test and measurement field: reducing downtime."

Featuring Astro-Med's latest LookBack™ and QuickReview™ technologies, the TMX enables instant review of several GBytes of data during ongoing long-term data capture. In addition, embedded scope capture and intelligent triggering capabilities preserve hard drive space while minimizing archive time.

"Until now, many engineers would have to export their data into other software to analyze it, which can be very time consuming," said Nadeau. "Advanced derived channel technology in the TMX enables real-time mathematics on the fly with no processing latency." 

Highly customizable, the TMX data acquisition system accepts a wide variety of inputs, including voltage, thermocouple, DC bridge, video, audio, IRIG, GPS and MIL-1553. All inputs are fully synchronized, eliminating latency. In addition, the TMX is available in both benchtop and rackmount versions.

The TMX can be configured and optimized for use in a broad spectrum of industries, including telemetry, aerospace and defense, automotive, power generation, transportation, steelworks, telecommunications, heavy industry, and others.
