Description

DC/DS Transmitters

Precise RC transmitters benefit from all of the features that the Duplex 2,4GHz EX system can offer.

The transmitters contain an advanced user interface that allows you almost unlimited programming. On-line and off-line telemetry are available as well as alarms, custom audio playback etc.

The design goals were maximum utility, durability, and reliablity of their mechanical parts along with simple handling. The metal case, with its chemically resistant finish, provides maximum protection for the interior components. The straightforward case shape makes servicing easy. The control gimbals, ball bearing equipped with their magnetic Hall sensors are another revolutionary design concept used to make the DC/DS among the world’s most advanced R/C systems.

Purposefully placed at the top of the transmitter, the 3.5" sunlight readable color LCD with its wide viewing angle offers nearly perfect visibility in just about any lighting condition. Thanks to its high resolution display and use of a relatively large number of graphic images it was possible to create a simple and intuitive setup procedure for displaying telemetric data.

The DUPLEX EX family of products have been equipped with an improved real-time telemetry system which can be viewed on the LCD transmitter display. The transmitter allows the setup of voice notifications, both preinstalled and user created, which can be related to telemetric values, user set alarms, or signals which have been assigned to conditions of various control elements.

The DC series transmitters are designed for the Tray

The DC-14 tray-type transmitter expands the range of RC transmitters equipped with the JETI Duplex system. This design is based on the model DC-16 (first generation). Unlike the DC-16, the DC-14 offers a unique concept of individual feature setup based upon the requirements of each customer. The transmitter is available in a basic configuration that will meet the needs of most users for most model types.

The DC-14 features newly designed gimbal sticks. We managed to keep all the characteristics of the plastic sticks used, mainly thanks to high-quality materials and Hall sensors inside the sticks which are fully supported by high quality ball bearings.

Duplex 2.4GHz – the DC-14 transmitters feature the Duplex 2.4GHz, frequency hopping, digital, data stream system, originally developed by JETI model in the Czech Republic. This system has been reliably used for many years.

Built-in Telemetry – from the start, the DC-14S transmitters were designed and built with many attractive features and include the full integration of all Duplex telemetry sensors.

Transmitters - the DC/DS designs use premium quality materials and emphasize state-of-the-art appearance and user comfort.

Precise Gimbals – the transmitter gimbals are equipped with Hall sensors and ball bearings for precision movement with an almost unlimited lifespan.

The DUPLEX EX product family has been equipped with an improved telemetric data transfer system and the subsequent data processing on the LCD transmitter display or analysis on a PC. The transmitter allows  setup of acoustical notifications (optionally created by the user himself), which are related to the actual telemetric values or to sound signals assigned to conditions of particular control elements. 

Duplex 2,4GHz – for flight control and reception of telemetric data from the model to the transmitter the DC-14 takes advantage of the wireless system Duplex 2,4GHz, which has been developed by the JETI company as well. The data transfer system Duplex 2,4GHz is very reliable and has been verified during many years.

LCD Display – the 3,8“ backlit display of the DC-14 transmitter with a resolution of 320x240 pixels allows perfect legibility under all lighting conditions.

Li-Ion Battery – provides a proven and reliable energy source with a high capacity (6200mAh) and a long service life.

Easy Charging – simply connect the wall power supply, optional car charger, or any 12V DC power supply to the transmitters charge port.The DC/DS may also be charged through the USB to PC interface. The charging progress is shown on the DC/DS display.

Integrated Antenna – the antennas are located behind fully integrated covers in both the DC/DS cases for protection against mechanical damage.

Large Memory – Internal SD card for storing models, sounds, and telemetry data.

USB Connector – convenient connection to your PC. Fast firmware & sound upgrades, telemetry data downloads.

Fast Navigation – 3D wheel-style interface combined with function keys allow for speedy navigation within the DC/DS menu.

Digital Trims – fully programmable trims and a revolutionary automatic trimming function.

Swappable and Assignable Switches – all of the switches on the DC/DS transmitters (2- or 3-position) can be easily moved and assigned to create a custom configuration that works best for your application.

Programming – the logical and intuitive transmitter firmware is designed to be simple to use. Just follow the step-by-step screens. The creation of a new model can be accomplished with just a few
easy steps.

Sounds/Alarms – the DC/DS transmitters are equipped with audible alarms and also allows the use of user-recordable alarms and sounds to keep you fully informed while also keeping distractions to a minimum.

 

Additional software extensions 

For individual setting of the transmitter there is a configurator available at swshop.jetimodel.com. After the simple registration of your transmitter it is possible to select additional features based upon your individual demands. For example, if you fly only helicopter models, select such features as "Throttle Limiter" or "Gyro Settings" but you will probably not need to increase the number of flight modes. These are more suitable for controlling glider models.
