Goebel meets milestone in C919 test bench deliveries

The Goebel Company announces delivery of number 10, of C919 Mini test benches for COMAC 919 flight controls test.  According to Mr. Goebel, “The MINI designation is a misnomer, as the bench design with 6 displays, 4 computers, and complete signal breakout and embedded Goebelyzer is not physically small.  Compared to the system benches with complete avionics it is still MINI”.  In addition to the bench milestone, this is the first instance of an LRU test being developed around unique capabilities of Goebel’s flight control interface card.  As Mr. Goebel states: “Our intelligent flight control interface cards, with 20 or 32 channels and emulation capability has allowed Honeywell to maximize their test resources through development of the MINI bench concept.  Without our interface card, they would be limited to fewer and more expensive test benches.”

Honeywell Flight Controls – P2P bus

For the Boeing 787 program Honeywell developed a new bus for it's flight control electronics, called the P2P bus.  The Goebel Company developed a test resource and Goebelyzer (analyzer/exerciser) for this bus which is used throughout Honeywell, and by many other vendors on the 787 program.  The test resource along with the Goebelyzer has provided capabilities above and beyond those originally envisioned.  For this reason there are many testing scenarios that are executed entirely on the Goebelyzer via the simple yet powerful scripting language.

Goebelyzer Bus Analyzer

The Goebelyzer has proven an invaluable tool for viewing data from of a variety of bus interfaces.  One of the distinguishing features is that live data is displayed during capture in engineering units based on ICD definitions.  Tools take the ICD definitions from s range of ICD data bases, and convert this to decode information for the Goebelyzer.  ICD levels can be selected for decoding the data.  Timing plots are easily generated with the click of a mouse showing timing anomalies.  Support for A664, A429, A661, A739, CAN, P2P, SDLC, ASYNC, 1553 and Analog bus types can be monitored all on a single time line.  Our decode capabilities are so powerful Boeing recently purchased our decode tools to decode data from another vendor's analyzers for importing into their data base.

AFDX® (registered trademark of Airbus)

In the early days of the A380 program few options existed for AFDX® interfaces.  Honeywell originally procured an AFDX® test resource from another vendor which was non-functional 9 months after delivery.  After exhausting efforts with the original supplier, The Goebel Company proposed to provide the solution for the A380 program.  The product was delivered in 90 days and is still in use today.
