Model Description:
Variable Rate Buffer Interface for DIR-1000 serie units

Model Details

Variable rate buffer, 0-256Mb/s Record/Playback, 0-100Mb/s reverse playback, supports IRIG A/B TC, GPIB or RS-232C control, Parallel/Serial I/O.


  • Suitable for a variety of real-time data acquisition applications
  • Effectively match the user data rate with one of the fixed data rates supported by the specific DIR-1000 Series recorder in use
  • Offers the choice of parallel (8 bit data plus clock) and serial bit stream input/output data interfaces
  • Can also accommodate an IRIG-A or IRIG-B time code channel
  • The time code record is maintained within the helical data tracks and updated incrementally to an accuracy of ±0.1ms
  • Provides a choice of buffer memory capacities in order to ideally accommodate the discrete user data rates found in the DIR-1000 Series tape drives
  • Supports data rates from 0 Mb/s to 64 Mb/s when used in conjunction with the DIR-1000L drive
  • The DFC-1800N, equipped with a larger buffer memory, accommodates data rates of up to 128 Mb/s when used with the DIR-1000M and up to 256 Mb/s with the DIR-1000
  • Offers a unique "reverse replay mode" enabling up to 105 Mb/s reverse data replay for some remote-sensing applications
  • Includes a Write Retry Function for maximum data assurance. Any media errors detected during recording are re-recorded on a new portion of the tape from the unit's buffer memory
  • Supports both GP-IB and RS-232C remote control interfaces, making them suitable for a wide range of computing platforms
  • Incorporates a comprehensive diagnostics and error-reporting capability
  • Provides maximum data assurance
  • Supports GP-IB and RS-232C remote control I/F, making them suitable for a wide range of computing devices
  • Provides error reporting capability to insure accurate data recording
