Following the introduction of the DVCS6100 digital intercom system in 2008, Becker Avionics is now also offering the innovative AMU6500.
This new-generation digital intercom system incorporates several advanced features such as 3D audio technology and Bluetooth compatibility. 3D audio allows for customizable left or right channel separation into crew helmet or headsets for corresponding left or right engine or system(s) malfunction(s).
Selectable channel separation of left or right audio radio frequencies for complex missions with multiple radio frequency operations is also available. Enhanced safety and efficiency by reducing crew workload along with improving situational awareness were primary design considerations of the AMU6500 at Becker Avionics.
Additionally, the AMU6500 digital intercom provides for Bluetooth pairing of cell phones, MP3 players, or tactical headsets that have this capability. The new system can control up to 12 separate radios with a weight and space reduction by integrating the Remote Electronic Unit (REU) into the intercom head that otherwise would be installed on the avionics rack.
Becker Avionics will be showcasing the new AMU6500 as well as the DVCS6100 during the upcoming Airborne Public Safety Convention (APSCON) at the CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska, July 17 to 19.
