RC to DC Converter

0 to 5 Volt Output
12 Bit DAC

Applications

  • Aerospace
  • U.A.Vs. / R.P.Vs.
  • Robotics
  • Animatronics
  • R/C and Digital Conversions

Features

  • Plugs directly into Fatuba™ type radio receivers.
  • Wide Power Supply Range
  • Stores last valid pulse
  • Small Size

This precision device converts standard R/C servo style PPC signals to an analog DC output with12 bit resolution. The output is stable with input changes such as: supply voltage, pulse amplitude, frequency and temperature. Programable options include: output scaling within 0 to 5 volts, positive or negative going, valid pulse width cut off points, and a second order filter for different time constants (T/C) output filter rates. All programs are factory set.
