DVCS6100 installed in 1000th EC135

8th September 2011 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Becker Avionics is pleased to announce the recent delivery by Eurocopter Germany GmbH of the 1000th EC135 to ADAC Air Rescue with a Becker Avionics digital audio and intercom system, DVCS6100, installed. The EC135 light twin-engine multi-purpose helicopter, along with the Becker DVCS have been very successful products over the last decade.

ADAC Air Rescue will utilize the aircraft primarily for HEMS missions. Klaus Fruehwirth, Vice President Sales and Marketing stated, "The DVCS6100 is the ideal system for HEMS operations, due to the excellent Man-Machine-Interface, outstanding field reliability, and its crystal-clear audio quality."

He continued, "Crew resource management training emphasizes that communication between pilots, crew and controller is critical to avoid human error and consequential accidents. Aviation communication is always vulnerable to performance limitations due to verbal communication; therefore crystal clear audio system quality is of crucial importance to aviation safety. Operators have to be able to communicate effectively in all stages of flight. The DVCS 6100 digital audio-intercommunication system fulfills the highest requirements for audio system quality and reliability, which results in a higher level of safety."

The DVCS system installed in the ADAC EC135 is comprised of one Remote Electronic Unit (REU) 6100, two Audio Control Panel (ACU) 6100's for pilot and copilot, and one ACU6101 Audio Control Panel for the medical cabin.
