Digital to synchro converter

    Hello there,

    I want to drive an aircraft indicator (radar altitude) which is out of
    an 26VAC/400Hz system. The needle is moved by a synchro in the
    indicator. A quick internet search revealed that there are units that
    can convert a digital input to the corresponding angle. Can anybody
    recommend a unit to perform this task?

    Thanks,
    Philipp

    There are lots of them out there, but they're fairly pricy. Check out ILC
    Data Device Corporation, Natel, Transmagnetics to name a few. I used to
    sell digital to synchro converter upgrades for airline flight simulators,
    and eventually designed my own to get the per unit cost down.
