Fully Distributed Control Wiring Diagram


  • before and afterThis notional diagram shows the relative simplicity of the wiring in a distributed system.
    • Ducting is not required since the nodes are at the sensing location.
  • The FADEC now is just the high level processing unit.
    • Most I/O is handled in the distributed nodes
    • Only a distributed communication and power bus connects all nodes.
    • Adding or changing nodes is accomplished by "tapping" into the existing network.
