Capture Parallel Port Data
Silent Hawk® XEs capture data as it is sent to your printer. This enables an electronic version of your data to be created while hard-copy outputs are being generated. This method of data acquisition eliminates errors associated with manual re-entry.
Ethernet Data Connectivity
Silent Hawk® XEs connect to the Silent Hawk Control Console and transmit their capture data via an Ethernet connection. This allows the Silent Hawk® XE to be flexible and provides you with a direct connection method (via crossover cable), a local connection method (via patch cable) or a remote connection method (via VPN configurations and the internet).
Automatic Capture File Segmentation
With automatic capture file segmentation, Silent Hawk® XEs seamlessly separate capture data into files based off of certain criteria. The use of script files provide users with a way to easily modify capture settings and affect changes to their capture data in real-time.
Default capture file segmentation options include:
Reliable and Never Loses Data
Silent Hawk® XEs capture data non-intrusively provided that the Capture PC matches or exceeds the printer's data stream rate. While capturing data non-intrusively, Silent Hawk® XEs do not interfere with printing operations. If the capture PC begins to fall behind the printer's data rate, Silent Hawk® XEs will slow down the transfer rate of the printer so that the speed rates can be matched. Most important of all this ensures that your data is never lost.
Simple and Easy to Install
Silent Hawk® XEs come complete with all the cables required for use with a Centronics parallel data interface, a crossover cable and a patch cable. AC/DC Power Adapters, a Quickstart Guide, and a Silent Hawk® User Manual are supplied with each Silent Hawk® XE as well. All that you need to use the Silent Hawk® XE is a PC that has Windows 98 or later, an Ethernet interface and the Silent Hawk® Control Console Application.
Silent Hawk® XE's Front Panel
Silent Hawk® XEs front panels provide indicators to users about the state of the data stream and allows users to test their data sources. The front panel LEDs notify users about the Silent Hawk's® status. Front panel switches allow the user to exit data capture via the Bypass Switch or test connectivity with the data source via the Hold Switch.
