Engineering Models & Control Panels
Engineering Models benefit your organization by providing a cost-effective, rapidly produced solution that meets performance requirements.
Adcole Space offers Engineering Models (EMs) of any flight hardware – including Sensor Heads and Electronics. EMs are typically equivalent to flight hardware in form, fit, and function, but are built using non-flight components. Thus, we can create a fully functional and accurate model at a fraction of the cost of actual flight hardware.
EMs are typically used early in the build to:
- Verify power and data interfaces
- Mechanical interference checks
- Other subsystem integration activities
Control Panels contain the necessary circuitry to properly drive an array of Stimulators. The panels contain front panel controls and / or computer inputs, as indicated by the customer. Control panels are powered from 100 to 240 VAC, 50 or 60 Hz and have an effective temperature range of -30° to +60° C.
Adcole Space recommends using an Adcole Control Panel with each group of Stimulators. Alternately, the stimulators can be operated using customer-built driver circuits. Adcole will assist customers in specifying the appropriate drive signals for any purchased stimulator hardware.
