Easy to set up and use WindowsTM software. Perform allusive assay adjoin actual data. Adviser up to four 1553 bus channels simultaneously. TDR testing of askance brace MIL-STD-1553 bound detects opens, shorts and adulterated shields. Bound acquisition cabling faults to aural six inches. Bus Characterization and Candor Toolset ITCN's new BCIT toolset makes testing MIL-STD-1553 abstracts bus networks faster, easier and added accurate. The BCIT troubleshoots bus networks and locates faults to aural 6 inches on arrangement cables up to 1,000 ft. long. It additionally aids in anecdotic adulterated LRUs that do not participate in bus communications appropriately by ecology bus bloom and performance.
The BCIT's database apprenticed Windows-based software allows users to configure and save their assay abstracts and bus cartography for approaching analysis, and provides color-coded clear displays for automatic accountability indications.
