Portable tape storage system

Portable tape archive system


HGL Systems has designed a portable PC-based tape storage system for use with in-the-field data acquisition. The system features an internal tape drive and a complete mini-iTX-based PC, enclosed in a sturdy steel chassis. 

Portable rugged acquisition system


HGL Systems has designed a completely new conduction-cooled chassis for a PC-based acquisition system. The new chassis features greatly enhanced rigidity, protecting the internal components better than before. As a result, the system has become better suited for flight testing.

Portable Data Recorder System

Portable HDR Data Recorder

HGL has used its Computer-Aided Design skills to design and manufacture the external chassis and all internal fixtures and fittings for a PC-based portable instrumentation recorder. The timescale for the project, from conception through to customer demonstrations at trade shows, was less than four months.

Rack-mount instrumentation chassis

HGL has designed a sturdy steel frame chassis for use with a computer-based data acquisition and analysis instrument.

The design was a ground-up replacement for a previous chassis designed for aluminium. The requirements called for the external appearance of the chassis to remain broadly similar to the previous appearance, whilst adopting all of the new requirements for the internal layout.

The main benefits to the customer for switching to the new design were improved robustness and ease of access for assembly and maintenance. Another key advantage was for the front panel connectors to be compatible with those in another instrumentation design, allowing the same components to be used in two different systems.
