Remote Data Concentrator (RDC)

The Remote Data Concentrator (RDC) series is a miniature hermetically sealed acquisition unit, useful for installation in harsh and remote locations to both simplify wiring harness design and improve signal fidelity by measuring input signals close to the source. Captive fasteners are included to minimize risks of FOD. 

FPGA based processing coupled with high speed analog front ends allows both digital (e.g. ARINC-429) and analog (e.g. Synchro) signals to be measured with the same pins in different applications.

Primary output capability is through a high speed ARINC-429 bus.

Total input capability is determined by exact signal selection and pin availability, e.g.

  • Differential (input): 11 channels
  • Single Ended (input): 22 channels
  • Output transcievers:2 channels
  • Auxiliary Outputs: 1 protected 28VDC
