The EXC-Unet2/Ix is an intelligent Discretes adapter. Its small size and ability to interface through USB or Ethernet interfaces make it a complete solution for developing, testing and performing system simulation of the discrete channels, both in the lab and in the field.

The EXC-Unet2 supports up to four independent 8000 family avionics communication modules, allowing multiple different protocols to be mixed and matched on a single card. 

Modules available include MIL-STD-1553,  MIL-STD-1760,  MMSI, ARINC-429,  ARINC-708, ARINC-717, Serial, Discrete and CAN bus.

Multiple units can operate via USB ports on the same computer. In addition, multiple units can operate on the same network, by programming each one with a unique IP address, and can be accessed from any computer on the network.

Please see multi protocol 8000 modules for additional information on protocols that can be added to this card.

Ordering Information:

Part Number Description
EXC-Unet2/xx        Multi-protocol interface for USB or Ethernet equipped computers

"xx” specifies the modules ordered with the carrier board (up to 4 modules).
