RAR-PXI Interface

A RoHS-compliant, high-density intelligent ARINC 429 PXI compatible interface.





High Density PXI interface for simulation and test 

Available in a range of configurations to match your needs, the RAR-PXI provides complete, integrated databus functionality for ARINC 429, ARINC 575 and selected two-wire, 32-bit protocols in a PXI compatible CompactPCI form factor. It supports maximum data throughput on all ARINC 429 channels while providing onboard message scheduling, label filtering, multiple buffering options, time-tagging and error injection/detection. It also supports 16 avionics-level I/O discretes, an IRIG-B receiver (AM or DC/TTL) and an IRIG generator (DC/TTL), with support for either 33 MHz or 66 MHz 32 bit CompactPCI, PXI, or PXI Express Hybrid chassis slots. Ruggedized configurations with extended operating temperatures are optional.

Software tools minimize integration effort, shorten time to implementation

Abaco Systems’ software tools and solutions significantly reduce the time required to integrate support for the ARINC 429 protocol into your application. Included with the RAR-PXI is our flexible, high-level API (Application Programming Interface) with support for Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, Server 2012 R1/R2, Vista, and XP (32-bit/64-bit), function panel and API support for LabWindows/CVI, and LabVIEW Instrument Driver support for LabVIEW and LabVIEW Real-Time.

The RAR-PXI LabVIEW Instrument Driver includes complete virtual instruments for use with both LabVIEW for Windows and LabVIEW real-time environments to provide graphical access to Abaco Systems’ extensive RAR-PXI Application Programming Interface.
