Astro-Med Introduces New 18-Channel Data Acquisition System

Powerful -- Portable -- Priced-Right

WEST WARWICK, RI--(Marketwire - Apr 2, 2012) - Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), a world leader in the data acquisition and recording market, today introduced its new TMX®-18 High-Speed Data Acquisition System, offering best in class efficiency for general purpose data capture, review, archive, and analysis. The TMX-18's high resolution, 17" touch screen display, as well as pre-defined set up options, makes test setups quick and easy. The TMX-18 features 18 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 Jon Lee, National Sales Manager of the Astro-Med Test & Measurement Group. "With its advanced processing technology, the TMX-18 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-18 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 Lee. "Advanced derived channel technology in the TMX-18 enables real-time mathematics on the fly with no processing latency."

The TMX-18 can be used in a broad spectrum of industries, including telemetry, aerospace and defense, automotive, power generation, transportation, steelworks, telecommunications, heavy industry, and others. To learn more about the Astro-Med TMX-18 data acquisition system, visit
