Data Concentrator Unit

DCU collects analog, discrete and digital data from various avionic and aircraft systems. DCU accomplishes necessary measurements, computations and any logical operations then presents concentrated information to use of avionics and aircraft systems with analog, discrete and digital communication.

With its reliable and rugged design, the DCU meets harsh environmental requirements of various Rotary and Fixed Wing Aircrafts.
