Hand held Digital Buses Acquisition Station

Dedicated to communication with most widely used digital buses, MAGNUM is a miniaturised and autonomous data acquisition system. Powerful, flexible, yet easy to use, the MAGNUM is a perfect tool for engineers. The MAGNUM is the real multimeter for digital buses.

With its portable format, MAGNUM is a complete tool that integrates all the necessary features required by test and maintenance engineers that need to exchange data with different kinds of equipment having digital buses interface capabilities. The MAGNUM records, displays and analyzes data in real time issued from digital buses like AFDX, ARINC-429, MIL-STD-1553

Ideal partner for the test engineer, lightweight, ruggedized, having a long autonomy, with a huge storage capacity, its data acquisition functions are accompanied by an extensive set of tools for displaying and analysing data, replay, data extraction.

Powered with MAGALI, a trusted data acquisition, measurement and telemetry software used worldwide, MAGNUM is equipped with all this software capabilities.
