Data recorder mcdRec

Data Acquisition & Conversion of Signals

With 48-168 differential microphone channels and the posssiblity to connect hundreds of different sensors, the data recorder mcdRec is an up-to-date, state-of-the-art piece of technology. It records and relates data to the acoustic results. This data-recording device has been developed especially for use with the Acoustic Camera. It facilitates high scanning frequencies and high numbers of channels but it is lightweight and compact at the same time.

Further details

Description

This data-recording device has been developed especially for use with the Acoustic Camera. It facilitates high scanning frequencies and high numbers of channels but it is lightweight and compact at the same time.

In addition to the microphone signals, other parameters can be recorded in analog or digital format. The distinguishing feature of this data recorder is the scalability of the microphone channel number and the interface. The data recorder is equipped with a wide-range AC power supply that allows operation around the world (from 90 to 240 V).

Parallel operation of multiple arrays is implemented as well as the ability to operate parallel mcdRec´s.
