JoeCo has developed and supplied a quantity of new BlackBox industrial data recorders for Siemens Industrial Turbo Machinery AB in Sweden. Siemens is using the BlackBox Industrial Recorder (BBR-IND) units as part of a test campaign to assist in the measurement of gas turbines.
The bespoke 24-channel, 3U rack-mountable systems are based on BlackBox Recorder technology. The units feature highly accurate and DC stable input and output circuitry, with additional software and hardware functionality specifically geared towards industrial data recording and measurement applications.
Greger Svanström, senior engineer in Measurement Technique/Product Development, who led the team specifying Siemens’ requirement, says, “The BBR Industrial has proved a valuable tool for gathering large scale measurement data. The use of a standard file format for post processing in our preferred software, combined with playback capabilities that enable us to reproduce recorded data for use in other types of online analyzing equipment, has streamlined our development process.”
“We’ve been delighted to have the opportunity of developing the new BBR Industrial recorders for Siemens, taking BlackBox technology into a new market”, says JoeCo’s Joe Bull. “In addition to more conventional audio recording applications, some of our standard systems have already been used for more diverse projects, so this latest product development is in many ways a logical step forward.
“At the same time, we would want to stress that development of our standard 24- and 64-channel BlackBox Recorders and Players continues apace and expect further product announcements in the very near future.”
