OEM SOLUTIONS > Measurement Systems

There are three categories that make up our measurement products; Engine Data Converters, Functional Modules and Transducers, Probes, and Sensors.

EDC-33 Overview

Engine Data Converter (aka: Concentrater; DCU; EDC-33x)

The EDC-33T (Engine Data Converter) monitors analog and pulse signals from Electronics International’s and/or an OEM’s Transducers, Probes, Sensors, and Modules. The EDC-33 has 33 universal channels and provides the following inputs:

  • 13 – Temperature Channels – Measures thermocouples and differential
    voltages.
  • 9- Pressure Channels – Measures mV Pressure Transducers and high
    impedance voltages.
  • 1 – Fuel Flow Channel – Measures Fuel Flow or a pulsed input.
  • 1 – Amp Channel – Measures a high side voltage on a shunt.
  • 1 – Bus Voltage Channel – Measures Bus Voltage.
  • 4 – Resistive and/or Capacitive Fuel Level Channels – Measures pulse frequency or a voltage.
  • 2 – RPM Channels – Measures pulse frequencies.
  • 1 – Temp Comp – Cold Junction Compensator for TC measurements.
  • RS-422 Output (RS-232 Optional) – Provides raw data to the display. The display unit performs the calibrations, de-jitter, and smoothing.

EDC-33T-S-OEM Description:

The EDC-33T-S is our Smart EDC. It monitors all the same inputs as the EDC-33T-OEM but it manipulates the data to provide output values that are ready to be displayed. The data can be used to drive an OEM’s Instrument, Data Recorder, Data Bus, or telemetry system. The data is calibrated, de-jittered, smoothed, and accurate. The data can be displayed at the same rate as it is received with no manipulation.

Smart Conversions

Processed and Calibrated Data Out

  • Analog and pulse signals are received and processed using an array of algorithms that massage the data into readable engineering units.
  • The EDC can provide simple linear conversions or mapped linearization for non-linear inputs or complex calculations.
  • Processed data is output via a number of serial protocols.
  • A receiving display unit only has to display the processed data as it is received.

Optimal Solution for Custom Monitoring Applications

  • Bluetooth capable for wireless in-field calibration.
  • The formatted data provides an easy integration to any display head without further processing.
