TREVOSE, Pa., 2 March 2015. AIM-USA in Trevose, Pa., is introducing the ADock docking solution for the integration of its family of ANET Ethernet based products available for MIL-STD-1553, STANG3910/EFEX, and ARINC 429 avionics databus test & measurement.

The ADock can host as many as four AIM ANET Ethernet based data bus interface devices in one housing using any combination of the ANET1553, ANET3910, and ANET429 devices (dockable versions).

The ADock Tower or 19-inch rackmount variant offers all connections for power, Ethernet, ANET Auxiliary connections, USB, and IRIG-B in one rear panel.

The ADock integrates one power supply unit for all four ANET slots and includes an Ethernet switch and optional WLAN router. The ADock is AC powered and ANETs can be powered individually via dedicated power switches to plug and unplug single ANET units without powering down the entire docking station or other ANETs mounted in the dock.

The ADock hosts an eight-port 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet switch providing one Ethernet connection for all ANET slots to a network via one RJ-45 connector.

An internal backplane synchronizes ANETs by routing the IRIG-B output of the uppermost ANET slot to an IRIG-B output connector. An IRIG-B input connector routes an external IRIG-B signal to the IRIG-B inputs of all ANET slots.

Using an external feed of an IRIG-B signal or re-routing the time master's IRIG-B output to the IRIG-B input via a selector switch. Additionally the ANET auxiliary connector as well as the general purpose USB port is available on the ADock for every ANET slot.
