The DL 615 is the modern replacement for outmoded 3½-inch floppy disk only ARINC 615 portable data loaders (PDL). Any PC running Microsoft® Windows® can perform data loads using the USB to ARINC 429 interface, cables, and software included with the DL 615. While being as simple to use as older floppy disk PDLs, the DL 615 provides record keeping, flexibility in data management, and powerful features for troubleshooting and enabling data loads into difficult LRUs. As an added benefit, the interface can be used as a general purpose ARINC 429 (and optionally ARINC 717) maintenance tool.
The DL 615 provides flexibility in how data to be loaded is stored and managed. Data can be loaded from floppy disks, hard disk, USB device, CD, DVD, and even from wired or wireless network locations. The transfer status display shows exactly how the load is progressing. Some LRUs have non-standard timing and can be difficult to load. The DL 615 provides compliant, tolerant, and custom timing options which, along with the included 615 protocol recording and debugging/diagnostic tools, enable the DL 615 to load LRUs that are impossible to load with other loaders.
The DL 615 can be easily configured to log data load sessions for record keeping and debugging purposes. Logs can include basic load details only or detailed records with all bus activity. The entry screen can optionally prompt the user for additional details at the start of a transfer session.
