United Electronic Industries (UEI) has announced two new military grade DAQ (data acquisition) and I/O control platforms. Both platforms offer several technological advantages, including the ability to create a configurable COTS-based solution for virtually any analog/digital I/O sensor, interface and control application.
Using an advanced modular architecture, the DNR-MIL and DNA-MIL platforms are 100% COTS based and supported by UEI’s family of more than 50 compatible analog, digital and interface I/O boards. Specific interfaces are available for: ARINC-429, MIL-1553, CAN, RVDT/LVDT, synchro/resolver, RS-232/422/485, strain gauge, quadrature encoder, high-voltage analog outputs, high-drive outputs up to 50mA, analog inputs up to 300V, DIO to 150V, and other applications. All I/O boards are accessed through 38999-style connectors using a single API layer which greatly simplifies the software development effort.
Manufactured in the US with a ten-year availability guarantee for program longevity, each platform is factory tested, rated for operation from -40°C to 70°C, and able to withstand 5g vibration and 100g shock. On-board BIT (built-in-test) diagnostics also help ensure uptime and failsafe operation.
- Military/rugged 38999 connectivity
- 100% COTS solution
- Supported by more than 50 standard I/O boards
- 5g vibration, 100g shock, sealed to IP66
- Dual GigE ports (control and diagnostic)
- Designed for MIL-STD-461/810/1275 compliance
- Extensive built-in system diagnostics
- PDNA, UEIPAC, UEISIM & UEIMODBUS configurations
- No rotary cooling devices
- Extensive software supper including Windows, Linux, QNX, RTX and more
- VxWorks support available in embedded or hosted configurations
The DNR-MIL and DNA-MIL are designed for MIL-STD-461/810/1275 compliance and deployment in environmentally harsh applications involving military and aerospace computing, oil drilling platforms and storage refineries, heavy machinery, outdoor test stands and other I/O applications exposed to hostile environments. Delivering unmatched deployment flexibility, the new chassis can be configured as either computer-hosted or standalone platforms. They can also run Simulink models for actual hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing and rapid prototyping while users remotely monitor and tune parameters. For interoperability with PLCs and SCADA systems, the DNx-MIL Series is also Modbus/TCP compatible.
The DNR-MIL and DNA-MIL platforms support all popular and MIL-hardened operating systems and programming languages, including Windows, Linux, VxWorks and QNX as well as an extensive array of application packages, including LabVIEW and Simulink.
