The UNIC system is designed to meet very high reliability requirements. This includes special measures for redundancy, fault tolerance, and the mechanical and electrical design.
The Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) is a test in which stresses applied to the product are well beyond the normal shipping, storage, and in-use levels. HALT provides an accelerated means of finding product design weaknesses, thus making the product more rugged. All hardware is verified and tested through HALT to ensure reliable operations in the harsh environments in which engines operate.
The software architecture is renewed in UNIC and more advanced features, such as isochronous load sharing, skip firing etc, are possible. The UNIC software is developed continuously so as to meet all new requirements required in different installations.
