Bus Interface Boards are for Cube and RACKtangle chassis.

Press Release Summary:

Designed for harsh environments, DNA/DNR-1553-553 bus interface boards are fully tested for operation from -40 to +85°C, 0-70,000 ft, and can withstand 5 G vibration and up to 50 G shock. Each board provides 2 independent, dual redundant bus interfaces for 1553 communication, and each port can be independently configured as bus controller, remote terminal, or bus monitor.

Original Press Release:

2-Channel, MIL STD-1553, Bus Interface Boards for UEI's Cube and RACKtangle Chassis Family

Walpole, MA (May 6,2009) - United Electronic Industries (UEI) is pleased to announce the release of the DNA/DNR-1553-553 two-channel, dual redundant, 1553 bus interface boards. Each board provides two independent, dual redundant bus interfaces for 1553 communication. The DNA version is compatible with UEI PowerDNA and UEIPAC "Cubes" while the DNR version is designed for use in UEI's twelve and six slot RACKtangle chassis.

Each port may be independently configured as a Bus Controller (BC), Remote Terminal (RT), or Bus Monitor (BM). Designed to function in harsh environments, the DNA/DNR-1553-553 is fully tested for operation from -40 to +85°C, 0 to 70,000 ft and can withstand 5g vibration and up to 50g shock. A full description of the DNx-1553-553 product is available at http://ueidaq.com/products/ethernet-daq/MIL-STD-1553/

"The addition of 1553 capability allows our military simulator manufacturing customers to move the 1553 interface out of their host PC and into the I/O chassis where it is easier to install and maintain." According to Shaun Miller, UEI President. "1553 capability will also allow our customers to expand the use of our Cube products in flight test and flight data recording applications."

About the "Cube"

UEI's powerful "Cube" architecture is a compact (4 x 4 x 4" or 4 x 4 x 5.8") Ethernet based I/O platform. It may be deployed in four different configurations. These are: 1) Ethernet I/O systems slaved to a host PC, 2) Stand alone Data Logger/Recorder, 3) Linux-based Programmable Automation Controller (PAC), or 4) Modbus TCP based I/O slave. Each Cube consists of a core module (that holds the processor and network interface) along with three or six open I/O slots. Users select the deployment option that meets their requirements. Users then match the Cube's I/O configuration to their application by selecting the appropriate boards. With over 25 I/O boards available, there's sure to be a configuration to meet almost any application requirement. The six slot Cube provides up to 150 analog inputs, 192 analog outputs, 288 digital I/O, 48 counter or quadrature channels, 72 ARINC-429 channels, 24 Serial or CAN-bus ports, or 12 1553 channels.

About the (12-slot) RACKtangle and (6-slot) HalfRACK

UEI's popular rack-mounted chassis provide convenient, front-loading, easily-serviced, multi-slot, 3U enclosures for the complete range of UEI I/O modules. Both products provide two Gigabit (1000/100/10 Base-T) Ethernet ports with independent IP addresses that can be used either for communication or diagnostic purposes. Passive backplanes with no active electronic components ensure an almost unlimited MTBF for both models, and since all active components are mounted on easily replaceable I/O modules, an extremely short MTTR (mean time to recovery) can be achieved. A 12-slot RACKtangle can handle up to: 300 analog inputs, 384 analog outputs, 576 digital I/O, 96 counter or quadrature channels, 154 ARINC-429 channels, 48, serial or CAN-bus ports, or 24 MIL-STD-1553 communication bus ports. A 6-slot HalfRACK handles half as many. Click www.ueidaq.com/ for a full description.
