The TS 717 Test Set for ARINC 717 is a convenient, easy-to-use tool for test and maintenance of aircraft systems that are tied to the Digital Flight Data Recorder (DFDR). The compact interface/cable hardware is conveniently stored in a rugged carrying case for easy transport and quick deployment. To use, simply connect one end to the aircraft test plug, the other to the USB port on any Windows® computer, and the accompanying CoPilot software displays the user-specified data received from a Digital Flight Data Acquisition Unit (DFDAU) or DFDR output databus.
When connected to an ARINC 573 or 717 databus, the test set automatically senses and adjusts to the bit rate (from 64 to 8192 words per second). It then synchronizes to the sync words in the serial data stream. Status is continuously reported including the bus speed, state of the sync, and current subframe and superframe. To display a particular flight data parameter, the operator specifies the word by entering the desired word number, subframe, and superframe. The display is updated each time the specified word is received. Subframes may be specified uniquely or as odd, even, or all. Specify superframes uniquely or all.
