Axon Quick Start Kit

Axon is the most modern and capable data acquisition system available today. The Axon quick-start kit provides a basis for users to become rapidly familiar with the Axon DAU and the Axonite remote DAU. Using it, you will discover the advantages and new features offered by Axon as a complementary system to existing Curtiss-Wright data acquisition systems, or as a standalone unit.

This quick start kit consists of fully qualified, released hardware and software and may be expanded upon as future Axon user modules become available. In the kit you will find:

  • Axon chassis (AXN/CHS/09U): The AXN/CHS/09U is a 9 user slot Axon Chassis that includes an isolated 100W power supply
  • Axon Backplane Controller (AXN/BCU/401): The AXN/BCU/401 is a dual-port full-duplex, Gigabit Ethernet, Axon backplane controller, programmer and transmitter
  • Axon Flexible Analog Module (AXN/ADC/401): The AXN/ADC/401 is used to condition and digitize up to eight configurable analog channels

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.
