Powerful capabilities for avionics maintenance

The DATATRAC 600 is a combination ARINC 429/629 data bus analyzer with dual, independent ports for each bus standard. Nearly identical functions are provided for each bus type. These include basic receive and transmit functions along with a general record mode and a powerful breakpoint mode. The standard RS-232 port is used for downloading real time or recorded data and for uploading new label/word definitions. The standard DAC port can be used to provide a trigger pulse or to drive recorders or instruments. An optional GPIB port permits remote control of all functions. PC software is available to aid the user in defining their own data definition table(s). The large graphical display and integrated keyboard provide an informative and intuitive user interface.
