The LC429-3 is a flexible, powerful ARINC 429 avionics databus interface board for the development and maintenance of commercial avionics. Installed in a CompactPCI computer, users can transmit and receive messages on up to eight databuses. This ARINC 429 cPCI board is available in nine combinations of transmit and receive channels and units can be upgraded at any time to meet changing requirements. The advanced features, ease-of-use and upgrade paths make the LC429-3 an ideal solution for ARINC 429 hardware and system development, testing, and simulation.
The powerful graphical interface program called CoPilot 429 is available separately or bundled as part of a CoPilot 429 System. No programming is required to use CoPilot 429. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can send and receive messages, handle data in engineering units and view a sequential record. With third party ActiveX controls; dials, gauges, strip-charts and other virtual instruments can be implemented.
These same features and channel combinations are available in the LP429-3 (PCI) family of products. A special version of this card (LC429-3/717) is available which supports concurrent access to an ARINC 429 and ARINC 717 databus.
