Analog Modules

High-performance, field-proven analog modules for flight test & avionics

Our KAM-500 analog modules typically connect to sensors used to measure data such as strain, temperature, and vibration in rugged data acquisition systems used in flight test instrumentation and other avionics applications. We've designed these modules to yield highly accurate, reliable, and low-noise data. At their heart are hard-wired state-machines that over-sample all channels and digitally filter any noise above the user-programmable cut-off frequency. All signals are sampled simultaneously so that, when several channels are sampled at different sampling rates at the start of an acquisition cycle, all channels will be aligned.
