DVCS6100 Digital Audio System Features
The DVCS6100 has been designed for both fixed-wing and rotary-wing applications and fully reflects Becker Avionics' proven know-how of more than four decades in audio system development for the aerospace industry. Since the market introduction of the 1st generation DVCS, over 1400 systems have been delivered, and all have achieved outstanding field reliability. The company's continuous product improvement program has made the DVCS6100 another Becker success story.
Becker's Digital Audio technology is a superior system that offers crystal-clear voice communication quality, a proven Man-Machine-Interface (MMI), outstanding reliability, scalability and flexibility, and is software configurable. The main system components of the DVCS6100 system are the Remote Electronic Unit (REU) 6100, the Audio Control Unit (ACU) 6100, and the optional Intercom Amplifier IC3100.
Each REU offers up to 8 transmit (TX) and 8 receiver (RX) channels, an integrated warning tone generator, built in speaker amplifier, as well as interface capability for 2 Cockpit Voice Recorders (CVR) and a Public Address Amplifier (PA). It is also the only commercial digital audio product available that can provide simulcast capability on 8 channels, along with a radio relay function, and emergency and slaved mode operation.

For above the average numbers of transceivers and/or receivers found on many mission aircraft, multiple REU's can work together offering capabilities no other system can provide. Each audio system can be configured to give complete adjustments across different on-board systems. The system also meets the highest standards for night operation under NVG and military conditions.
