The MAU (Modular Acquisition Unit or Modular Data Acquisition Unit) provides a custom solution to suit aircraft configurations with minimal engineering. The MAU is designed to fit general, business and military aircraft which require a standalone flight data acquisition system.
The MAU’s robust machined aluminium enclosure, along with the MIL SPEC D38999 connectors, provides protection for most operational environments making it suitable for both fixed and rotary wing aircraft. The hard mount, compact configuration enables it to be fitted in any orientation, simplifying the installation.
The MAU supports a wide range of signal input types including ARINC 717, ARINC 429, GPS signal, analog inputs such as synchro, pitot/statics & discretes. It provides a standard ARINC 717 and ARINC 429 output data stream which is compatible with ARINC 717 and ARINC 429 flight data recorders.
Expansion of the MAU capabilities includes the following modules:
