Data Acquisition & Control Platforms
United Electronic Industries (UEI) announced two new military-grade DAQ (Data Acquisition) and I/O Control platforms. 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. 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. Manufactured in the USA with a 10-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. 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.
