For PCB applications, individual NEXSYS components are now available as Thru-hole devices. Functions include: ARINC 429 signal converter, solid state relay, time delay, Boolean logic gates and more. Solderable pins (0.025" diameter) are designed to be compatible with 0.062” to 0.093” thick circuit boards.
For the avionics system integrator, using custom printed circuit boards or a discrete single-function piece of hardware can bring challenges as they face safety, software testing and certification issues. NEXSYS Component Technology provides design engineers with an innovative alternative that is reliable, cost-effective, and available with off-the-shelf speed.
A 20 second power up delay occurs following activation of mission power assuring primary avionics systems have completed power up and have stabilized before auxiliary systems power up. The auxiliary systems depend upon the stability of primary systems for calibration and correct power up.
Eliminate the need for a mechanical switch guard on an aircraft door control switch. The door open switch contacts must be held closed for 2.5 seconds to activate the opening process. Inadvertent contact with the switch for less than 2.5 seconds is will be ignored.
A Solid State Relay is used to perform the function of a traditional dropout relay. The components transition from normally closed (NC) to open (high impedance) and uses the change of state to illuminate a separate indicator message. Additional components may be included to increase functionality.
This circuit detects a fuel tank over fill condition. When an over fill occurs a limit switch trips and a blinking advisory is initiated. The Blink mode continues until the over fill is corrected resetting the limit switch. The circuitry for this system is self-contained in a single indicator body.
The system allows the attendant to request an intercom call but only the flight deck can activate or cancel the call. ATC Com is allowed to override an internal call and the cabin has an emergency call option with a visual call indication on the flight deck.
Functional components including latching flip-flops, solid state relays, digital-to-analog signal converters, Boolean logic gates, voltage sensors, pulse/timers, electronic rotaries, diodes and terminal blocks can be combined to create over 1,000,000 possible configuration options in a small form factor enclosure offering unparalleled design flexibility.
