Performance Specification Statement per AS8003 Section 4.4

a) Entire instrument power requirement is 125mA. The encoder section is capable of sinking (grounding) and maximum of 1.15A of current (115mA X 10 outputs).

b) The encoder shall interface to transponder units for which the following Gillham Grey Code Outputs are acceptable (most Mode C transponder units):

  • Each encoder lead is a sink driver that will ground up to a 60V input. Minimum voltage is 3V.
  • Each encoder lead will sink a constant current of 115mA. Minimum current requirement is 525uA.
  • Maximum ON impedance is less than 3 Ohms.
  • Maximum ON (logical “1”) voltage is 60V. Minimum is 3V.
  • Leakage current for (4) above is less than 100nA
  • Maximum OFF (logical “0”) voltage is 0.6V. Minimum is 0.12V.
  • Maximum rate of altitude change is 100mS.
  • Switching bandwidth is greater than 1,000 kHz.
  • Provides standard 10-Bit Code.
