Ballard Technology has nominated Dedicated Systems Australia as its distributor for its military and commercial Avionics Databus Interfaces (MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, ARINC 7xx, ADFX).
Ballard Technology is a leading developer and manufacturer of hardware and software for test, simulation, maintenance, and development of avionics databus since 1986. Ballard Technology provides quality, easy-to-use products, stocking standard products, and giving free customer support. Ballard Technology has loyal users in industry, the military, and governments worldwide.
Ballard's new OmniBus family of products takes avionics databus interfaces to the high level of flexibility and power in the industry.
- OmniBus supports high channel counts of single or multiple protocols in one device – a board or a standalone device.
- Multi (and single) protocol board level: PCI; CPCI; VME
- Multi (and single) protocol Stand Alone: USB; Ethernet
- Other single protocol board level: PCI; ISA; PC104; IP
Simulation and Test packages are available with the CoPilot System, a complete line of software and hardware interfaces to MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, ARINC 708, ARINC 664 / AFDX and serial avionics databuses. A CoPilot System consists of a hardware component (e.g., Ballard's OmniBusBox) and a software component (e.g., CoPilot 429 Plus).
Multiple boards and multiple avionics protocols may be hosted in a single project in the CoPilot software. The automation and auto-detect features in CoPilot provide quick results: Users can transmit, receive, or monitor on a databus with just a few clicks of the mouse. CoPilot's extensive use of engineering units and data interpreters frees the user from the calculations necessary to convert the binary data passed on the bus into a recognisable format. CoPilot's intuitive interface and industry-leading features make it a good choice for avionics professionals.
