Universal Interface Between Telemetry Processors and Chart RecordersBrimbal, Michel; Kelly, Fred; GOULD Inc., Test & Measurement (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1992-10)Chart recorders currently in use on telemetry ranges are connected to telemetry processors via a series of Digital to Analog Converters (DAC) systems. A new modular interface system receives data directly from the processor broadcast bus and distributes them to up to ten digital chart recorders. This interface is programmed from a computer to assign individual tags to each one of the display channels. This system eliminates DAC's and patch panels. It simplifies display system operation, speeds up transition from test to test and reduces maintenance costs.
