HDR Portable Data Recorder

The new HDR series machines from HGL Dynamics



Combining the ease of use and compact size of traditional data recorders such as the Sony SIR1000 and Teac RD series, and the functionality and flexibility of modern data acquisition systems such as the HGL Hawk series, the new HGL HDR series provides the best of both worlds in a powerful and cost effective package.



The new HDR series machines from HGL Dynamics represent the next step in the evolution of data recording and analysis.

Traditional data recorders have required extra equipment for monitoring the signals being recorded; the HDR series allows you to monitor signals on the integrated display, optionally including alarm indications for safety monitoring applications.

Traditional data recorders have required the captured data to be taken elsewhere for replay and analysis; the HDR series allows you to perform analysis on the machine, quite often whilst recording further data.

Traditional data recorders have generally provided little meta-data for traceability (such as channel parameters and calibration information). Full data acquisition systems provide this information but with more complex interfaces. The HDR series combines the simplicity of a traditional recorder with the enhanced meta-data facilities of more complex systems through the use of innovative techniques and software from HGL Dynamics.

Multiple HDR units can be linked together allowing channel counts from 16 – 2048 and above to be achieved simply and with no degradation in bandwidth. The HDR series are the most compact machines in their class offering world class performance in a 3U 19” (450mm) rack mount package with a depth of only 12” (300mm).

The HDR series weighs less that 10kg (22lbs) and is therefore small enough and light enough to be considered truly portable.
