KAD/MBM/102 is a MIL-STD-1553 bus monitor, which can monitor up to four dual redundant busses. It combines the capabilities of a coherent message parser.
- Monitors 4 dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553 bus using Direct or Transformer coupled operation
- Coherently parses traffic and tags for up to 4092 parser ID; parser ID based on 16-bit commands; RT-RT messages treated as one parser ID
- Aperiodic transmission of packetized MIL-STD-1553 messages including tags as iNET-X payload structure per channel
- Optional recording of messages with time-out status reply
- MIL-STD-1553 traffic monitoring and recording
KAD/MBM/102 4 Channel Dual Redundant Bus Monitor
The KAD/MBM/102 is a MIL-STD-1553 bus monitor, which can monitor up to four dual redundant busses. It combines the capabilities of a coherent message parser, with the flexibility of an iNET-X packetizer. It also provides message counting and extensive error detection functions, on a single module.
The KAD/MBM/102's parser, triple buffers up to 4,095 complete messages, and their associated tags in buffers up to 43 words wide. The INFO tag associated with each message has a stale bit (message read before), a skipped bit (buffer overwritten) and an empty bit (no message received since power-up). These can be included as discreet parameters in Ethernet or PCM transmissions.
All messages are transparently added to an iNET-X parser-aligned packet and are sent aperiodically. This is achieved by oversampling the packet buffers with the Acra KAM-500 controller and silently dropping packets, which have already been sent saving bandwidth and media storage. iNET-X messages are optimized for Ethernet transmission and simultaneous storage in Wireshark Packet CAPture (PCAP) format.
The MessageCount increments on receipt of a valid message. The error word has bits (in the form of a 6-bit code) which indicate the type of error caught and the bus on which it occurred. Errors are also time-stamped and recorded in the iNET-X packet.
Aerospace Instrumentation Brochure
Modern aerospace instrumentation systems can be highly complex, and it can be difficult to know how to meet program needs. It’s not unusual for requirements to change during a campaign and cause significant delays, and data must be captured reliably no matter what – otherwise expensive additional flights will be needed or months of program data could be lost. Read our brochure to learn how you can reduce your risk with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions.
