Total Quality Systems, Inc. (TQS) of Roy, Utah, has taken its Intermittent Fault Detection and Isolation System (IFDIS) innovation to the ultimate level of capability. Now our IFDIS is powered by the TQS’s Intermittent Failure Analyzer (IFA™). Built with the maintainer in mind, the Ultra IFDIS™ leverages over 17 years of TQS’s innovative SBIR development and fielding of the IFDIS for the USAF and the USN using the technician’s and artisan’s input to continually improve our IFDIS. Technicians need to know more about the actual failure rather than just getting a fault indication. We listened, and now we present the Ultra IFDIS™ to meet the modern needs of the DoD’s avionics repair and sustainment activities.
The IFA™ is a more powerful test measurement system that is similar to having thousands of individual digital signal analyzers with automated data capture features at the technicians’ fingertips. Now instead of just detecting faults, the IFA™ can characterize physical connectivity failures in magnitude and duration. The IFA™ is not an analog neural network system, rather it has been designed with the latest in ultra-high-speed digital processing.
- Monitors tens of thousands of circuits during an operationally relevant test
-- Vibration, Gs, Temperature, and/or Humidity
-- Expandable to the number of required test points in a Unit Under Test
- Detection of intermittent connectivity failures of less than 10 nanoseconds
-- Detects and isolates Shorts, Opens and Intermittent failures
-- Designed to meet the Type 1 specification requirements of MIL-PRF-32516
- Measures each intermittent connectivity duration and magnitude
-- Tags failure data with temperature and vibration environmental information
- Detects presence and condition of resistors, inductors, capacitors, and diodes
- Enhanced graphical display provides an easy to use diagnostics aid
Diagnostics data can be made available to the maintainers, engineers and supply chain managers to evaluate and track LRU/WRA Ultra IFDIS™ findings over time to aid in identifying and repairing the highest priority assets first.
