The RCP-5000 is designed for cockpit panel installation and provides the test pilot or instrumentation engineer with control and monitoring capability for a flight test instrumentation (FTI) system.

It is powered from 28VDC. A 9-switch matrix provides operator and external system control capabilities.

A 4-digit 7-segment display is provided to display the percent of storage remaining. A 2-digit 7-segment display is also provided to display which recorder is being accessed. The brightness of the switch legends and the 7-segment displays can be controlled by the external brightness potentiometer or by varying the voltage to the switches. The RCP-5000 has two separate control switches – one for Ethernet and one for RS-485.

  • The RCP-5000-1 completely separates the Ethernet and RS-485 for Classified and Unclassified control and display.
  • The RCP-5000-2 combines the Ethernet and RS-485 to display the recorder with the least percent remaining.
  • The RCP-5000-3 can show the recorder percentage remaining and the ability to view/change the active recorder mode via the Mode Select button.
