NetAcquire delivers cost effective and reliable data capture solutions. Enjoy the confidence and peace of mind that comes with knowing your data will be there when you need it. The NetAcquire Data Recorder is a high-capacity portable signal recording option for NetAcquire systems that is capable of integrated playback. The NetAcquire Data Recorder samples PCM serial, Ethernet, analog, digital, and MIL-STD-1553/ARINC-429 data signals at selectable speeds, and stores the data on an on-board or removable storage drive. Depending on the acquisition speed, this system can support continuous gap-free signal recording from days to years.

NetAcquire Data Recorder can operate as a network peripheral or a standalone device. When the NetAcquire system is connected to an Ethernet network, the archived data files are available to any computer on the network using FTP (File Transfer Protocol). NetAcquire Data Recorder includes an integrated Web server, allowing the convenience of remote system configuration and monitoring from any Web browser.

Included NetAcquire AutoFTP™ software archives very large data sets; it runs on the NetAcquire system and continuously transfers archive data files to a customer-supplied central file server. AutoFTP supports very large recordings and hierarchical storage management into the multi-terabyte range. Once AutoFTP confirms a successful file transfer, the associated data file is safely removed from the internal NetAcquire disk to avoid disk overflow.
