New ADwin Pro-II Cards Enable Aerospace Applications and More Modular Cards for High-Speed Avionics Manufacturing and Test Applications CHESTERLAND OH—July 24, 2013 CAS DataLoggers and ADwin now introduce 2 new data acquisition cards for ADwin-Pro-II Data Acquisition Systems.
Designed for use in the commercial aerospace industry, these cost-effective modules support new serial interfaces for ADwin users. These cards expand the advanced test capabilities of the ADwin-Pro-II to open up exciting new commercial aerospace applications including avionics manufacturing, testing, and more.
ADwin’s new PRO-II-MIL 1553 card has a MIL-STD-1553 serial data bus interface capable of 1Mbit per second speeds. The card features 2 bus connections and also supports a 16-bit SMT bus monitor. These modules are ideal for network communication of aerospace equipment such as test stands and subsystems.
Additionally, the new PRO-II-ARINC-429 card uses an ARINC-429 serial bus interface with a transmitter and 2 receivers. This cost-effective module is capable of high speeds of up to 100kHz and also utilizes a
TiCo processor to handle local preprocessing of data.
Allowing users to leverage all the DAQ capabilities of the ADwin Pro-II AND enabling networked aerospace equipment communication, these new cards are great new additions for ADwin users. Our PRO-II systems are modular, intelligent real-time systems for fast data acquisition and control in the most demanding industrial applications.
All ADwin systems support parallel, individually-controlled, real-time processes while running independently of the PC's operating system to provide deterministic operation with response times of 1 usecond or less. These advanced systems are commonly used for testing components, sensors and ECU's, control of servohydraulic systems, motion control, and synchronized data acquisition.
Cutting-edge ADwin features include their tightly-coupled analog and digital inputs along with counters which provide users’ applications with extremely low latency operation. The ADwin-Pro II Series utilizes
a modular form factor with plug-in modules to allow up to 480 analog or digital inputs in a single chassis, along with a high-performance 300 MHz DSP processor and Ethernet communications interface. There
are also a variety of other I/O options including CANbus, SSI, Profibus/Fieldbus, RS-232/485, and signal conditioner modules.
The extraordinary speed of the Pro II system provides complex applications with a high data rate, and the fast processor allows an intelligent pre-selection of relevant data, mathematical functions or digital channel filtering T11. Additionally all the new Pro-II modules which run on the Pro- II bus automatically sync, allowing fully-synchronized time measurements with multiple modules without any special software effort.
Users can choose their ADwin Pro II model from a broad variety of robust housing for various applications, including as a desk system for labs, a portable system for travel, or as a system for panel mounting. The system’s 5-16 slots and the number of different modules are the ideal, flexible foundation for rapid real-time applications.
