The R&S®GX465 (AMREC) is a recording/replaying device, ideal for use in signal interception systems and in combination with the R&S®AMMOS GX400 VXI-based monitoring solution, R&S®CA120 multichannel signal analysis and most Rohde & Schwarz receivers and direction finders.

 

Key facts

 

Sustained data transfer rate for recording baseband I/Q data with a maximum bandwidth of 80 MHz

Recording of various data formats (I/Q, symbol, image, audio, FFT, etc.)

7.6 Tbyte of removable storage

Various recording and replaying modes such as continuous recording

One-page spectrogram summary of recording

Multiple recordings of various data types in parallel

 

Features & Benefits

 

Compact, 2 HU, 19" format

The R&S®GX465 is a compact digital data recording and replaying device. Its format (2 HU, 19") facilitates rackmounting together with Rohde & Schwarz compact receivers, such as the R&S®ESMD wideband monitoring receiver. The storage medium is simple to insert and remove, making it easy to exchange data between mobile and fixed stations.

 

Recording and replaying

Depending on the configuration and the type of receiver or direction finder used, the R&S®GX465 is able to record scenarios which can be replayed later. A scenario can be replayed repeatedly (loop mode).

 

Network interface

With a 1 Gbit Ethernet interface, the R&S®GX465 can be used for recording and replaying scenarios with a bandwidth of up to 10 MHz and for controlling the device. Additionally, the R&S®GX465 can be used with 10 Gbit Ethernet (either electrical or optical), data transfer for the R&S®ESMD wideband monitoring receiver or the R&S®DDF255 digital direction finder. The maximum data transfer is sufficient to handle scenarios with up to 80 MHz bandwidth.

 

Control interface

The R&S®GX465 is controlled via the 1 Gbit Ethernet interface. Control interface commands supported by the R&S®GX465 include:

 

- Storage status query (free/used storage space)

- Query list of recordings

- Tagging of recordings with comments

- History function for facilitating the setting of comments for recordings in relation to timestamps

- Export and import of recordings using file transfer protocol (FTP) 1)

- Deleting of specific recordings

- Attachment of a write-protect tag to specific recordings

- Navigation in large recordings

- Built-in test (BIT) during power-up procedure and consistency check

1) Supportetd by FTP commands.

 

Easy-to-exchange storage medium

The R&S®GX465 uses memory packs which can be easily exchanged to facilitate data interchange between stations (e.g. between mobile and fixed stations).
