Becker Avionics, of Baden-Baden, Germany, was selected by RUAG Aerospace to supply the DVCS 6100 digital audio and intercom system for the new Dornier 228 NG production aircraft, which is currently in the certification flight test phase and deliveries are anticipated for the third quarter.
In the standard configuration, each aircraft will be equipped with the Becker Avionics DVCS6100 digital audio and intercom system, comprised of two Audio Control Units (ACU) 6100 in the cockpit, with additional expansion capabilities for the cabin. The units integrate with the Remote Electronic Unit (REU) 6100 and control the aircraft audio and radio selection.
The DVCS6100 has been designed for both rotary and fixed-wing applications. Since the market introduction of the first DVCS generation, almost 700 systems have been delivered.
