- BT3-USB-MON combines three tools into one easy-to-use product
- Sets new price/performance benchmark for 1553 testing
The BT3-USB-MON is a monitor-only device that combines three tools into one easy to use product: 1553 visualisation and recording software; 1553 monitoring hardware; and scope outputs for electrical analysis – providing a complete, integrated, ready-to-run solution that is simple to order and available on very short lead-times. Additionally, the BT3-USB-MON does not have any transmit or receive functionality, making it safe for secure bus monitoring.
It derives its unparalleled ease of use from the provision of Abaco’s industry-leading BusTools GUI to simplify 1553 bus monitoring, significantly reducing the steep learning curve often associated with the MIL-STD-1553 protocol – but also providing the extensive functionality and flexibility required by experienced 1553 users. The BT3-USB-MON also benefits from customer support direct from its design team.
The BT3-USB-MON’s integrated differential-to-single-ended 10:1 scope provides output for each bus, together with programmable on-board triggers, allowing data and waveform capture of specific bus events.
The BT3-USB-MON’s functionality includes the ability to capture 100% fully loaded bus traffic with IRIG synchronised time-tagging, error status, word status and message status. Extensive filtering and triggering options include by individual RT/sub-address; transmit, receive or broadcast mode codes; internal or external triggering; and trigger output on user-specified data. Rugged packaging makes the BT3-USB-MON ideal for use on the flight line, in the lab, or even in the field.
