GE Intelligent Platforms BusTools-1553 v7 Bus Analyzer

GE Intelligent Platforms launched version 7 of their BusTools-1553 Bus Analyzer software application. BusTools-1553 v7 data bus analyzer includes the Dynamic Bus Monitor stop/start feature which enables engineers to dynamically achieve the most efficient routing of 1553 bus traffic on the fly by modifying the configuration of a network while simulated traffic is running. MIL-STD-1553 is a military standard published by the US DoD that defines the mechanical, electrical, and functional characteristics of a serial data bus. It has widespread use in military avionics and in spacecraft for on-board data handling for such activities as control of aircraft subsystems.

GE Intelligent Platforms BusTools-1553 Bus Analyzer Highlights

  • Designed for analyzing, testing and simulating data traffic on the 1553 bus that is at the heart of many military avionics and spacecraft control systems
  • Integrated, Windows-based application solution for MIL-STD-1553 test, analysis and simulation
  • PCI, CompactPCI, PCMCIA, PC/104, PC/104-Plus, PC/AT, VME and VXI platforms for simplified control over simulation, display, data logging, playback and protocol analysis of MIL-STD-1553/1760 A and B networks (a separate version is available for MMSI/EBR-1553)
  • Available for use with 1553 avionics products from GE Intelligent Platforms
  • Support for converting the data files used by existing PASS3200 Bus Analyzer customers so they can retain their historical data while taking advantage of the latest generation of GE 1553 products
  • Intuitive, interactive GUI interface is designed to enable rapid monitoring and analysis of bus traffic, the creation/modification of messages while running, and display of multiple real-time engineering unit values and user-formatted graphs
  • Control of multiple buses simultaneously
  • Injection/detection of errors
  • Rapid filtering of displayed or recorded data for both live and replay modes
  • GUI Widgets enhance ease of use, while a one page bus list editor is provided that replaces the previous version’s multi-page editor, making it more user-friendly
  • Users can quickly organize complex bus activity into an easy-to-read one page list to gain a clearer picture of bus traffic over a 1553 network
  • Selective Data Watch feature allows quick selection of individual data words from any bus message: elusive system problems can be identified more rapidly using capabilities such as integrated high/low limit checking, real-time engineering unit display, DDE output, automatic limit event logging and its snapshot feature
