ALLIED Data Systems’ AD-1553 Series of bus couplers/switchers are designed for applications requiring a small, dual redundant, dual channel bus coupler, bus isolator or a bus switcher.
The AD-1553 provides connections for the 1553 bus and up to two dual redundant remote terminals as well as bus in/out for the dual redundant bus.
For the bus and bus switcher modes the AD-1553 has the capability to switch either channel of either remote device from the main bus.
When used for testing purposes the switcher mode also provides the capability to connect the two remote devices together with appropriate loading to form a local bus.
The Test Bus Switch is ideal for use in ground test facilities for control and testing of UUTs while connected to the main test bus or while connected to an individual tester such as the DDC BU 65570 simulator/tester products.
