The AL4301 is a serial data multiplexer and demultiplexer depending upon its configuration. As a multiplexer, the unit is used to combine several data streams into one higher speed stream for convenient data transmission or storage on a single channel recording device. The  demultiplexer configuration subsequently accepts the composite data-stream and reconstructs the original channel signals. In full duplex applications, a single AL4301 chassis is used to house both the multiplexer and demultiplexer.  However, if all of the modules shown in the drawing are contained in a single chassis and that chassis is duplicated at the opposite end of the data link, the application becomes full-duplex. In record/playback applications the independent operation of the Multiplexer and Demultiplexer sections allow playback and read after write functionality using only one unit.

AL4000 Multiplexer

image4

Smaller, Tougher version of Apogee’s AL4300 Suitable for Airborne & Harsh Environment Applications.The AL4000 is a field configurable system for merging multiple data sources into a composite stream (multiplexing) for transmission over communication data paths and separating and reconstructing the composite stream back to the original data sources (demultiplexing). The unit is configurable to accommodate full duplex requirements (multiplexing and demultiplexing in one chassis) and also simplex requirements in which it will perform either the multiplexing or demultiplexing functions.

Modularity and scalability are integral elements of the AL4000 design, making the unit easy to use and expand. The AL4000 can be configured to address specific application requirements and the plug-in modules are easily installed into the chassis, permitting ease of expansion or reconfiguration in the application. Each time a card is installed in the chassis, initial power-on tests are performed, the card slots are read to detect the presence of a card, and the installed cards automatically initialize and re-activate the last programmed settings.

The AL8400 Data Acquisition Multiplexer accepts a variety of analog and digital signals and multiplexes them together into a single stream of digital data bits for recording, transmission or IRIG compatible decommutation.  The unit utilizes standard sampling techniques and generates standard IRIG PCM telemetry formats. A standard Class I or Class II decommutator / frame synchronizer may be used to extract the data. Alternately, data may beingested by a computer for storage and processing.

The unit is configured using a simple remote control program which requires a minimum of operator interaction.  All Model AL8400 control and setup information passes through the micro-processor of the PCMGEN module. In order to keep the front panel menu driven display simple, the software is configured according to the data acquisition modules that are installed. Separate documents are provided that describe, in detail, the installed modules.

The AL1110 SPIN and AL1111 SPON are part of a series of Apogee Labs Data Network Appliances (DNA) that provide a flexible, scalable and cost effective Ethernet transport for serial PCM data, audio, and video (NTSC and PAL).  The SPIN and SPON enable PCM data and clock with serial rates up to 35 Mbps to be sent across LAN’s and WAN’s at network speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps with minimal overhead.  The DNA series is built on a core technology that supports transport speeds in excess of 500 Mbps thus allowing for future expansion to utilize the capabilities of higher bandwidth network design

The SPIN and SPON were developed with both the novice and experienced network integrator in mind.  Novice users need only modify a minimal number of settings to begin transmitting data over the network; whereas advanced users may modify packet sizes, port numbers, protocols, MTU sizes, and other lower level settings
