The FAA has granted Becker Avionics a production certification to manufacture the Digital Voice Communication System (DVCS) 6100 at its U.S. subsidiary, in Miramar, Florida.
“With certification and production authority in hand, Becker Avionics will begin manufacturing the DVCS6100 system in the U.S. immediately,” said Roland Becker, President and CEO of Germany-based Becker Avionics Group. “The decision for establishing a U.S. production line was taken in 2009. This step is of great importance to the Becker Avionics Group, as we strengthen our presence in the U.S.. We are committed long-term to enhancing our U.S. presence as well as serving the North and South American aviation markets more closely. Over the past two years we have focused on penetrating the U.S. market, and it is critical for us that we remain competitive in the biggest aviation market in the world.”
Since the market introduction of the first DVCS generation in 2005, more than 700 systems have been delivered. The main system components of the DVCS6100 system are the Remote Electronic Unit (REU) 6100, the Audio Control Unit (ACU) 6100, and the optional Intercom Amplifier IC3100. It offers up to eight communication transmit (TX) and up to eight receiver (RX) channels, an integrated warning tone generator for up to eight different signals, an amplifier for two cockpit speakers, as well as interfaces for two Cockpit Voice Recorders (CVR), and a Public Address Amplifier (PA).
