HBM today announced it has been awarded a Silver Sensors Best of Sensors Expo award in the data acquisition category for its portable high-speed data acquisition and transient recording system, GEN5i.

The award-winning GEN5i integrates a high-end PC and a state-of-the-art data acquisition system into a single, portable instrument. GEN5i is ready to run “out of the box” and combines unmatched performance with ease of use.

The high-speed DAQ and transient recorder features an integrated PC running Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit and lab performance with up to 40 channels, as well as up to 100 MS/s per channel in a portable, all-in-one box. Full connectivity ensures easy data back up or transfer, from the office, the lab, the factory floor or even out on the proving ground.

The Sensors Best of Sensors Expo awards honoured the most exciting new products that were on display at the Sensors Expo and Conference, which took place at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. All entries were judged on the basis of potential impact, application, distinctiveness, timeliness and availability.

This panel of judges were comprised of the magazine’s editorial staff, members of the editorial advisory board and industry experts including Melanie Martella, executive editor of Sensors, Deborah Lickness, John Deere and Ed Ramsden, a member of Sensors’ editorial advisory board and principal of Sensorlytics LLC.

“The awards programme recognises cutting-edge solutions in the sensors marketplace,” said Ms Martella. “All of the nominations demonstrated exceptional innovation, integration and ease-of-use. We believe this year’s winners will be leaders in the sensors marketplace and offer our congratulations to the companies recognised.

“We were honoured to receive the distinguished Silver Sensors Best of Sensors Expo award,” said Chantelle Thompson, marketing Communication Specialist. “This vote of confidence from the Sensors editorial board confirms the significance our data acquisition products hold.
