Universal Synaptics renews deal with Derco

Wisconsin-based Derco, a Lockheed Martin company, has renewed its contract with Universal Synaptics for the Intermittent Fault Detection & Isolation System (IFDIS™) and the portable Voyager Intermittent Fault Detector (VIFD™).

The partnership originally commenced in 2010, with the extension providing Derco with the opportunity to supply specialised avionic repair services to customers worldwide.

The IFDIS™ is used to detect intermittent and other signal path errors or “ghost faults” in nearly any piece of electronic equipment or wiring on any platform including C-130, F-16, and UH-60 military aircrafts.

Identifying faults and eliminating failures during testing saves operators time and maintenance costs.

At the heart of the IFDIS™ is patented intermittent fault detection circuitry that continuously monitors each electrical path in the unit chassis. During testing the IFDIS detects, logs and isolates any intermittent event that occurs, and then graphically displays the failing circuits to the operator to enable quick and efficient repairs.

Ken Anderson, Universal Synaptics vice president, said: “We chose to continue partnering with Derco because they recognize the importance of supporting operators’ maintenance and mission goals through quality parts and sophisticated testing.

“Derco recognised the potential of our technology early on and has continued providing the avionics cost-savings and reliability throughout the industry.”
