Unique Telemetry Solution

Dewesoft has a variety of data acquisition hardware that can interface with the telemetry market and uses DewesoftX data acquisition software​​​​​​​ that can read and decode the IRIG 106 Chapter 10 data from any telemetry data recorder in real-time over the ethernet or a pre-recorded Chapter 10 file.

What makes Dewesoft X software unlike anything else on the market today is the ability to combine standard analog data acquisition solutions with telemetry data, aircraft bus data (PCM, ARINC 492, MIL-STD-1553, iNet), video, and many others.

For the engineers, this brings a big advantage, flexibility, ease of use, and time to invest in learning only one software interface for a variety of solutions.

Multiple Data Sources Synchronised

The Dewesoft solution allows the acquisition, storage, visualization, and analysis of multiple, perfectly synchronized data sources:

  • Ethernet - IRIG 106 Chapter 10 packets
    (PCM, Analog, Video, ARINC -429, MIl-1553, Serial) and Custom Ethernet packets.

  • PCM - IRIG 106 data.

  • iNet - capture and decode data using the iNET network packet protocol.

  • Analog - analog sensors like strain, vibration, sound, voltage, current, RTD, thermocouple, etc.

  • Bus data - MIL-STD-1553, ARINC-429, CAN bus, XCP, Flexray, OBDII, J1939.

  • Video - low-cost Direct X cameras, medium speed 600 FPS cameras, high speed 100 000 FPS cameras, thermal vision infrared FLIR cameras.

  • Digital I/O - digital in, digital out, counter, encoder.

  • Positioning - 10 Hz GPS, 100 Hz GPS, Inertial Measurement Units, Xsens, and Adma Gyro platforms.

For more information about supported interfaces please visit the DewesoftX interfaces and storing page.

IRIG Chapter 4 PCM

Dewesoft hardware and software can interface, decode and visualize data from telemetry IRIG Chapter 4 PCM-compliant data interfaces.

PCM-FS2: PCM Telemetry Frame Sync

The PCM-FS2 instrument from Dewesoft is a dual frame sync IRIG Class II decommutator with up to 40 MBit/second data rates. 

Software Decom

A software decommutator offers a full range of decoding for normal commutated, super, and sub-commutated parameters, embedded frames, and fast switching of the decommutator.

Industry Standard

Dewesoft decom is widely used in most advanced telemetry labs around the world which is the result of close cooperation with major vendors of flight recorders and ground equipment. 

IRIG 106 - Chapter 10 Ground Station

DewesoftX can fully decode, visualize, and analyze IRIG 106 Chapter 10 data and utilizes standard input format for telemetry data interface ethernet packets real-time consisting of:

  • PCM Data (unpacked, packed, and throughput)

  • MIL-1553 and ARINC-429 bus data

  • iNET data recording from up-to-date telemetry standards

  • Video

  • Ethernet & UART channels

  • Analog

  • Ethernet data

  • TMATS (setup channel)

  • Timing (absolute time)

The ability to record data in throughput-packed and unpacked modes gives the user the flexibility needed and provides an all-in-one processing and recording package for the ground station. The software can also replay Chapter 10 files. Data is frame synchronized and decommuted. This gives you the ability to playback and process any Chapter 10 file without tying up an entire ground station.

Raw data

The Dewesoft systems will always store raw data and leave optimal possibilities for offline data processing and visualization. 

Real-time Data Visualisation

Dewesoft X data acquisition software offers several pre-built visual displays for visualizing any data that is being fed into it. Simply drag-and-drop visual display on the screen and select the data channel you want to visualize. Any changes to the visual screen parameters will be seen and rendered in real-time.

Several visual displays are available. From data recorders, scope, FFT's, 2D and 3D graphs, analog and digital meters, GPS maps, artificial horizons, geographical maps, and many more. All instruments are configurable and customizable to fit your need and all changes are visible in real-time.

PCM-FS2 Frame Sync Box / PCM Encoder

Frame Sync

PCM-FS2 is a Frame Sync device and allows two 40 Mbps clock & data streams into a platform-independent solution. The Frame Sync box can receive two independent data streams into a single system. Multiple units can then be daisy-chained together to allow for higher channel counts.

The size of the Frame Sync box allows it to be tossed in a backpack with a laptop for a flight line checkout. When combined with a portable computer or the SIRIUS DAQ system and SBOX this solution can provide telemetry data processing in the aircraft and provide the pilot with a visual display of the telemetry data in real-time. This gives the ultimate flexibility to the engineer to solve their mission requirements.

PCM Encoder

PCM-FS2 can also be used as a dual PCM encoder with up to 40 MBit/second in real-time from aby Dewesoft DAQ hardware analog data, Chapter 10, simulated data and other data sources.
