BOHEMIA N.Y., 28 May 2010. North Atlantic Industries (NAI) in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing the SIU6 sensor interface unit rugged embedded computing I/O system for remote data acquisition and distribution for military and aerospace applications, such as engine monitoring, weapons targeting, navigation and guidance, and command and control.
The SIU6 embedded I/O system, which is for large platform monitoring and control system applications, provides control and monitoring of the overall enclosure and/or system health, including temperature monitoring, multiple power sources with switch-over, complex power control schemes, and status reporting to system processors.
The SIU6 has commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) multifunction I/O boards and rugged power supply packaged in a conduction-cooled enclosure. The rugged chassis is designed to operate in harsh environments such as extreme temperatures, electro-magnetic interference (EMI), shock, and vibration. An integrated backplane and front panel architecture eliminates the need for custom internal cabling or wiring.
The SIU6 allows for a wide selection of different I/O and communications functions such as A/D converter, D/A converter, TTL, RTD, discrete I/O, synchro/resolver-to-digital and LVDT, Digital-to-synchro/resolver and DLV, BC/RT/MT MIL-STD-1553, high speed sync/async RS232/422/485, ARINC 429 and CANBus.
Additionally, the user can select a processor module for raw data available from the I/O functions to increase package density, save enclosure slots, and reduce power consumption, NAI officials say. For more information contact North Atlantic Industries online at www.naii.com.
