Simulator Provides Recording System Evaluation and Speeds Development
Page 1 of 1
A new simulator for analog and digital recording systems made by Pentek includes a virtual recorder server application that simulates disk and I/O transactions for a complete and realistic recording environment. Using either the standard Pentek SystemFlow graphical user interface (GUI) or the SystemFlow application programming interface (API), the virtual server provides live, interactive operation for training or development. The user can easily switch between different recording systems in the Talon recording system product line. The common user interface (UI) and API provides a simple transition from one Talon recorder to another.
The SystemFlow Simulator demonstrates actual Configuration, Record, Playback and Status screens of the standard GUI, each with intuitive controls and indicators. It also includes the SystemFlow Signal Viewer to display simulated live signals being digitized and recorded by a Pentek analog signal recorder. The SystemFlow Signal Viewer includes a virtual oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer for signal monitoring in both time and frequency domains.
Developers have the option of using the SystemFlow API as an invaluable tool for developing their own UI to control the Talon recording system. The UI can be tested against the simulator prior to receipt of a Talon recorder, saving valuable development time. The simulator can be controlled locally or remotely via the socket-based client-server architecture. This allows system engineers to set up and test remote control of their recording system before it is received. The SystemFlow Simulator is provided in 32- and 64-bit Windows 7 Professional operating system versions.
The SystemFlow Simulator is free to download to qualified Talon recording system developers and evaluators. Developers should contact Pentek to be qualified to receive the download.
