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 â€œ1â€) voltage is 60V. Minimum is 3V.
- Leakage current for (4) above is less than 100nA
- Maximum OFF (logical â€œ0â€) 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.
