ACRA CONTROL’s KAM-500 data acquisition units (DAUs) are driven by hardwired finite state machines making them extremely reliable. Their compact, low power design makes them ideal for installing in locations that have limited space.ACRA CONTROL’s DAUs operate in the harshest environments thanks to their MIL-SPEC environmental ruggedness. There are over a hundred modules available that support advanced signal conditioning, avionics bus monitoring, video/audio compression, integrated data logging and multiple output formats; all of which adhere to the “any module, any chassis, in any combination” rule. This has many benefits including a simple upgrade path and enabling highly customized systems to be built using COTS product. The KAM-500 was designed to be ‘network native’ and gathers data with precision synchronization even across a large distributed system. It can operate in many industry-standard topologies, such as Ethernet, PCM and CAIS. The KAM-500’s well-proven backplane uses a 100% digital architecture to support a throughput of up to 64Mbps (4Msps with 16 bits per sample) per chassis, aggregating up to gigabit per second throughput for a network distributed system. The KAM-500 is based on open and mature standards and protocols for transmission, system synchronization, management and configuration. The chassis’modularity yields an exceptionally long useful life with a direct upgrade path to new technologies that ensures the solution is future proof. A complete suite of setup and management software that significantly improves setup times completes the solution by providing integrated tools and an intuitive display environment.
