|ADEPT22 Price: $29.95|
|The ADEPT22 Altimeter with Dual Deployment™ is a maximum altitude altimeter that
precisely measures, saves, and reports the maximum above-ground altitude value obtained
during a rocket's flight. The ADEPT22 also has two altitude controlled current outputs that
fire deployment charges, based on altitude. The first charge fires when the rocket reaches
its maximum altitude (apogee), then the second charge fires when the rocket descends to
1800, 1200, 900, 600, or 300 feet above ground, or six seconds after apogee, or at 150 feet
below apogee (7 choices, user selectable).
Some Explanation about This Product
First the Name. Adept Rocketry was the first company to produce electronic products for the Hobby Rocket market. 2011 was our 22nd year, and the designation ADEPT22 reflects this.
The ADEPT22 is a new design approach (actually a return to an old design approach). Adept Rocketry used terminal blocks on several products years ago, but then changed to the simple cable plug-on approach to make things simpler. We then coined the term "Plug and Launch™." The accessory hook-up cables and internal batteries are included with each of these products. Over the years we have received a lot of praise for this simple approach.
Then we realized that some rocketeers like to do things their own way, and rig the external wiring and batteries themselves. So we now offer this Dual Deployment™ altimeter with a terminal block. The ADEPT22 costs less to produce. It does not have an on-board battery holder, nor a large current supplying capacitor, and it does not require or include an accessory interface cable.
Dual-Deployment Controller™, Model DDC22
|DDC22 Price: $24.95|
The DDC22 is offered as a backup device for use alongside an ADEPT22 in a dual redundancy backup system. However, it may be used as the deployment backup for any altimeter. The DDC22 is a Deployment Controller™ with Dual-Deployment™ outputs that fire deployment charges, based on altitude. It is an altimeter based instrument that uses the same deployment circuitry and features as the ADEPT22 Altimeter, but it does not report maximum altitude after a rocket flight. Because of this, the tedious calibration requirements of the ADEPT22 can be avoided somewhat and allow the DDC22 a lower price.
