KAD/ETH/102 Ethernet Transmission and Programming Module

The KAD/ETH/102 is a full-duplex, Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps) module that can be used to program an Acra KAM-500 system or transmit data from an Acra KAM-500 system. In acquisition mode, some or all acquired data is transferred from the backplane to the onboard CVT. Onboard it is packetized into a user-defined structure. Once full, the packet is transmitted via UDP.

Any number of user-defined packet structures can be handled simultaneously. Different packet identifiers, packet sizes, and destination IP addresses can be individually programmed for each packet type. Destination IP addresses can be unicast, multicast, or broadcast. Upon reception of a programming packet, the module immediately exits acquisition mode and switches to program/verify mode. In program/verify mode it can read or write data blocks to or from any module in any chassis within a distributed Acra KAM-500 system. The KAD/ETH/102 supports IPv4 networks with fixed IP address allocation, including user-assignment of the module's own IP address. The module is factory-programmed with a unique Ethernet MAC address.


Aerospace Instrumentation Brochure

Modern aerospace instrumentation systems can be highly complex, and it can be difficult to know how to meet program needs. It’s not unusual for requirements to change during a campaign and cause significant delays, and data must be captured reliably no matter what – otherwise expensive additional flights will be needed or months of program data could be lost. Read our brochure to learn how you can reduce your risk with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions.
