Walpole, MA (September 10, 2013) — United Electronic Industries (UEI) today announced the DNA-PPC6-1G-MIL (Cube), an advanced military/aerospace-specified data acquisition and I/O platform housed in a compact 4.1” x 4.0” x 6.75” chassis. The MIL-CUBE is compliant with many aspects of MIL-STD-461 (including all power supply requirements) and MIL-STD-810, and supports virtually any input, any sensor, any interface I/O.
The chassis is US manufactured, factory tested, rated for operation from -40°C to +70°C, able to withstand 5g vibration and 100g shock and designed to support a wide range of high- and low-voltage analog and digital signals. Delivering unmatched deployment flexibility, the MIL-CUBE is easily configured as a stand-alone I/O controller or embedded, programmed and hardened for integration with high density, multi-function data acquisition systems. Its highly advanced architecture provides users with a simple and universal software API to construct, add and reconfigure applications based upon the I/O layers.
The platform is 100% COTS and supported by UEI’s family of over 50 compatible analog, digital and interface I/O boards, including ARINC-429, MIL-1553, CAN, RVDT/LVDT, synchro/ resolver, RS-232/422/485, strain gauge, quadrature encoder, high-voltage analog outputs (up to 115 VDC) with high drive analog output (up to 200 mA) and more. It 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 MIL-CUBE is also Modbus/TCP compatible. All I/O connections to this MIL-grade DAQ chassis are through 38999-style round connectors.
The MIL Cube supports all popular and MIL-hardened operating systems and programming languages, including µC/OS, VxWorks, QNX (all with C/C++ drivers) as well as an extensive array of application packages, including MATLAB and Simulink. The MIL-Cube also features built-in-test and self-diagnostic capability for check status operation and worry-free reliability.
Pricing starts at $6,000 with ARO availability ranging from two to six weeks depending on volume.
Founded in 1990, UEI is a leader in the PC/Ethernet data acquisition and control, Data Logger/Recorder and Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) markets. UEI’s I/O “Cube”RACKtangle I/O chassis are compact, rugged platforms, ideal for DAQ, Logging, and control applications in a wide range of industries including automotive, aerospace/aviation, unmanned vehicles, appliance test, simulator control, in-vehicle test, wind and solar power system control, semiconductor manufacturing, medical equipment, and more. UEI offers both COTS and custom products to OEMs, end-users, and systems integrators worldwide. With analog, digital, counter, CAN-bus, Serial I/O, ARINC-429 I/O and more, UEI has the interface you need. UEI supports all popular Windows, Vista, Linux and Real-time operating systems, programming languages and application packages, including LabVIEW, MATLAB and DASYLab.
