Heim Data Systems introduce the D7000

Heim Data Systems, Inc., introduces the new D7000, designed for a wide range of operational and flight test applications. Featuring adaptable signal interfacing and interchangeable media cartridges, the D7000 provides a highly flexible avionics data acquisition and recording platform in a very compact package. With a rugged mechanical design for harsh environments, the compact external dimensions and configurable connector interfaces of the D7000 are designed to allow direct replacement of legacy video and data recorders.

With up to 256 Mbit/s total system data rate, this recording system employs media contained in interchangeable cartridges, allowing the user to quickly choose and load either rugged hard drive or solid state media at any time during the life of the equipment. The packet recording format ensures accurate data time tagging and consistent channel-to-channel phase relationships. These systems are compatible with both Heim Data format and the IRIG106 Chapter 10 standard, including a compliant IEEE-1394b data download interface on the media cartridge. The D7000 mainframe also has GigE data download capability and the media SCSI interface provides a high-speed output to other Heim data download and analog replay systems that are fitted with media cartridge receivers.

Complete with an integral IRIG time code generator, the D7000 Series can also synchronize to external IRIG and GPS time sources to provide sustained high accuracy time tagging of recorded data. D7000 can optionally be fitted with an integral GPS receiver, integrating time reception, distribution and data time tagging into a single package. The media cartridge can also be fitted with an integrated clock that allows laboratory based time references to be automatically transferred to the recorder each time a cartridge is loaded.

The mainframe holds up to 4 multi-channel signal interface cards in any combination, providing a wide selection of interfacing, including concurrent recording of multiple video, PCM and MIL-STD-1553 bus sources in a single unit. The user has access to configuration and control functions through integral serial, network and discrete contact interfaces.

The D7000 also features an additional power connector, so the unit can be powered from ground support equipment without disturbing the flight power connectors. The D7000 military style connectors are all front mounted and can be supplied in a generic configuration or with specific custom connector types and pin-out. connector, so the unit can be powered from ground This enables direct form-fit replacement of both legacy video recorder and avionics data acquisition systems with an economical single box solution. Such replacement offers significantly increased functionality, increased channel capacity, a wider choice of channel interface types, higher data rates, compliance with IRIG106 Chapter 10 and enhanced management and correlation of the data during analysis.
