Lightest Weight Synchro Booster Amplifier for Shipboard Applications!

Bohemia, New York (May 2014) Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces the industry’s lightest and smallest form factor Synchro Booster Amplifier for shipboard applications. The SBA-3500X is the latest product offering in DDC’s expanding portfolio of motion feedback solutions for the defense and aerospace markets. It’s 25VA output drive enables synchro or resolver signals to be amplified to high-power 90V synchro signals required to drive multiple CT (Control Transformer), CDX (Control Differential Transmitter) and TR (Torque Receiver) loads. The high-efficiency, high-power capability, and compactness of these units make them ideal for training simulators, remote indicators, gunfire control, and retransmission systems.

Benefits include:

  • Compact, Easy-to-Use System for High-Power Synchro Output
    • Lightweight (1.25 Lbs) Low Profile Case Option
    • Output: 90V Synchro 60Hz or 400Hz up to 25VA
    • Input: 90V Synchro or 6.8V, 5V, 2V Resolver 60/400Hz Inputs (Custom Input Voltages are Available)
  • High Efficiency Design
    • Powered from the Reference Input; No Additional Power Source is Required
    • Energy Saving Power Disable Feature
  • High Reliability Design
    • Short Circuit, Overload, Load Transient, and Over Temperature Protection
    • -40°C to +85°C Operating Temperature
    • MTBF Report Available

“DDC’s new synchro booster amplifier is an ideal solution for test engineers and developers seeking a light-weight, cost-effective shipboard synchro booster with enhanced protection features and mounting options”, stated Rolf Mahler, Marketing Manager. “The SBA-3500X provides up to a 75% reduction in weight and 50% reduction in size compared with similar solutions while maintaining the rich feature set from our previous generation products."
