Stack will be demonstrating its range of Harsh Environment products designed with rotary wing aircraft applications in mind at the Helitech show at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford this month.
Using technology developed in top-end Motorsport, Stack have designed products to meet the specific requirements of rotary-wing users including government bodies, military forces, the security services, and law enforcement agencies. Stack’s ruggedized products are also perfect for consideration as commercial off-the- shelf (COTS) equipment with the company’s 25 years’ Motorsport experience of ensuring the latest technologies operate under the most demanding conditions.
A new range of Digital Video Recorders will be on show on Stackâ€™s stand. The new range of DVRs has a model to suit all needs with variants offering up to 4 camera inputs, higher bit-rate options for broadcast quality recordings, models offering completely sealed units to IP67, extended operating temperature ranges, and extended recordings capacity together with GPS and metadata data-logging capability. Stack DVRs offer a comprehensive and flexible monitoring and surveillance solution with features such as continuous-loop recording, automatic record start/stop using built-in 3-axis G-sensor and no video loss on power supply failure.
Also on show, Stack’s range of Multi-Function Event Recorders (MFRS) provide a powerful, scalable harsh environment data acquisition system. With up to 128 inputs and interfaces for ECUâ€™s, GPS, etc., these systems are fully configurable, for applications such as â€œblack-boxâ€ accident recorders, and Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) for military and civilian ground/air vehicles.
Stack will also be showing its award winning Battery-less Tyre Pressure and Temperature Monitoring System (TPMS). Stackâ€™s battery-less TPMS sensor uses SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) sensing element technology. This technology is passive, and does not require any additional conditioning electronics, nor battery power source, in the on-wheel sensor. The sensor can operate at very high temperatures â€“ more than 150Â°C â€“ without affecting sensor life. Significantly higher sampling rates e.g. 40Hz compared with 1Hz for battery based TPMS, can be offered without affecting the sensor life. Stackâ€™s battery-less TPMS has extended the inherent sensor life from 1-5 years to 10-15 years.
Stack will be on Stand 1812.
