The CDG-4000 Countdown Generator has been designed to provide launch timing information for launch sites.

The CDG-4000 provides a countdown time output in IRIG CS-5, IRIG 109-64 and an ASCII data output (IRIG CS-6). The unit operates as a countdown generator synchronized to an IRIG B120 time code signal.

ASCII data output serial stream of timing information reduces the amount of wiring needed to provide launch timing readouts. It also provides flexibility in the type of timing information that is displayed on the readouts.

Display readouts are connected to a single pair of wires. The displays can be daisy chained. The individual time readouts are displayed by selecting an address for the desired time. UTC, T-count, L-count, Functional time, time in hold, time until restart, total hold time, hold time used, hold time remaining, start of window, end of window, first motion and predicted launch time and three programmable text messages can be displayed. Use with AN-216 and AN-816 ASCII Readers.

The operator has complete control over the operation of the generator using the front panel keyboard and LCD display. A menu approach along with HELP screens guide the operator in performing tasks.

The unit can also be operated remotely using a serial port on a computer.
