The AL4000 Multiplexer/Demultiplexer is a ruggedized version of our popular AL4300 seriemultiplexer/demultiplexer. The AL4000 is a field configurable system for merging multiple data sources into a composite stream (multiplexing) for transmission over communication data paths and separating and reconstructing the composite stream back to the original data source demultiplexing). The unit is configurable to accommodate full duplex requirements (multiplexing and demultiplexing in one chassis) and also simplex requirements in which it will perform either the multiplexing or demultiplexing functions. The AL4000 can merge together virtually any signals that can be converted into a digital format, including serial digital (PCM Telemetry), voice, time code, asynchronous, avionic bus, and video. The data are then transmitted at data rates of up to 35Mbps over a serial data and clock pair which commonly is the source for an RF transmitter or an onboard data recorder. Moreover,the multiplexing process implemented in the AL4300 is compliant with the NASA’s CCSDS packetizing concept.
