Flight test recorder is flexible product designed for commercial and military avionics installations, the equipment presented here belongs to our recorder "D.T.MUX" Sfamily for land and airborne use. Chassis available in 6, 9 or 14 slots

Overview

The D.T.MUX Sfamily is efficient data acquisition unit (DAU) with a recording processing unit included. Designed for airborne use like flight test environment, the D.T.MUX Sfamily is proposed in different chassis from 6, 9 to 14 users modules. A wide range of acquisition modules are available and can be easily plugged into chassis, allowing a great versatility.

A unit is constituted by a CPU module available with different options (Real time transmitting, GPS Time ) and a recording capacity from 8 to 512GB. The power supply module is directly integrated in the main chassis and include Ultra capacitor which ensures to preserve data in case of sudden power cut.

The recording of data acquired, is assure by a solid sate data memory disk, made to work in the worst environment compliant with MIL-STD 810F. This disk is hot swappable and connectable to a simple laptop for data exploitation. This unit is actally use by a large number of flight test center over the world and D.T.MUX Sfamily is a reference in the field. This unit can be also used for other application, like structural wear surveillance, or like a video or mission recorder.

Advantages of the Sfamily
