The 3U, 1-slot chassis RDC-31CP0B is a pre-configured, rugged system with a high-performance, low power ARM Cortex-A9 processor. It is ideally suited to support a multitude of data concentration applications that require high-density, multi-channel, programmable communications consisting of: ARINC 429/575; CANBus (CAN 2.0 A&B or J1939); RS-232/422/485 Serial Communications and Dual-Port Gig-E Ethernet.
It is designed to consolidate inputs from military aircraft systems and sensors and distribute them via a full duplex switched Ethernet network. Since these systems host the avionics and utilities functions, several boxes and hundreds of pounds of cable can be eliminated.
Remote data concentrators (RDC) often serve as the central nervous system of a military aircraft and are a perfect fit for a number of mil-aero applications including fixed-wing, rotorcraft and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms.
