DCU32 Data Control Unit & Changeable modules

SKU: VEL-0001

DCU32 is a modular data system for the acquisition of digital and analog signals. It is primarily used for the installation of Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) to receive signals from various sensors and send NMEA – telegram to the VDR.

MCU32 – Main Control Unit

The MCU32 is an evolution of MCU5 with an extended range of functions. The well-known functions such as baud rate conversion and modification of NMEA sentences are still possible but also data storage or gateway for interfaces between IEC61162-1 and IEC61162-450. The integration of the existing DCU5 I/O modules is also possible with the MCU32.

  • Power Supply                    24VDC (18-32 VDC)
  • Data Rates                          NMEA according to IEC61162-1 and 2 RS422 up to 115kbps Network according to                                                       IEC61162450 100 Mbit USB 2.0 for Software Updates
