VC-129 Radio Receiver

Our VC-129 receiver is the go-to wireless control platform in our lineup for systems that need multi-current-regulated proportional. It's loaded down with I/O count and options, and can run any of our radios at any frequency. It's a processing powerhouse for demanding applications with its high-powered ARM processor, and up to 22 pins available for I/O and data. It's able to accept and provide almost any signal type common in the mobile industry - digital (on/off), proportional (both straight PWM and with current regulation), 0 - 5V or 0 - 10V analog, and 4 - 20mA, pulse/frequency, and quadrature. In addition, it's got RS-232, and dual CAN available (normally via SAE-J1939). We handle all of this in a module that's only 5"x4", highly environmentally hardened, fully solid-state, and 100% US-made (down to the board level) in our facility. We don't expect you'll use it's maximum capabilities, but it should handle whatever machine you can dream up. Full tech specs are below, and we're happy to take your call or email and go over a specific application with you.
