80010 Revision J January 18, 2011 Page 10

PMAT 2000 User Guide

The MCDP Program consists of a screen that approximates the actual MCDP with the addition of four lines of text at the top. The two smaller, upper lines of the screen are status information, such as the mode of operation. This information is a text representation of the LEDs illuminated on the actual MCDP panel. Below those lines, two larger lines display text identical to the two text lines displayed on the front of the MCDP. To activate the MCDP Emulator software from the PMAT 2000 Main Menu press the MCDP REMOTE PANEL button using the mouse pointer or press the letter M on the keyboard. The dialog box ENTER TAIL NUMBER will appear (see Figure 5). The dialog box is for a technician or mechanic to enter the tail number of the aircraft they will collect the maintenance data files from using the MCDP. All the downloaded fault and maintenance data files will have the tail number as their name. The file extensions assigned to each downloaded file will be incremental starting with 000. As new files are downloaded with the same tail number, sequential file extensions are generated.

Figure 5. Tail Number Input Dialog Enter the tail number or select a tail number from the scroll list and click OK. The MCDP panel display will appear (see Figure 6). If the inserted tail number is new, then the user will be prompted to save the tail number in the Tail Number List. Select YES or NO. After a tail number is saved it is retained in the pull down list and does not have to be re-entered. On subsequent file downloading instead of entering a tail number, pull down the scroll list and select the tail number from the list using the down arrow key on the keyboard or by scrolling through the entire list using the scroll bar. Each button on the MCDP panel can be controlled in two ways. Method 1: Each button has a single letter underlined in its label. Press this key on the keyboard to activate the button. Method 2: Using the mouse, move the cursor over the desired button and then press the left selector button adjacent to the mouse pointer. When MCDP emulation operations are completed, press the button labeled CLOSE to terminate the MCDP function on PMAT 2000. Either pressing the letter C or using the mouse pointer can do this.

PDL-615 Dataloading

The PDL-615 is an application program that allows ARINC 615 data loading to the aircraft from either floppy disks or from the software library maintained on the hard drive. The program also allows for file download from the aircraft and stores the file to floppy disks. The PDL-615 uses the ARINC 615 Airborne Computer High Speed Data Loader specification to define its operation. ARINC 615 is a commercial aircraft bus specification defining loading protocols. The specification includes the use of a high and low speed ARINC 429 bus and a protocol for the controlled, automatic uploading and downloading of data to and from avionics devices. ARINC 615 automatic loading requires minimal operator intervention.

(See Figure 9) For purposes of familiarity, the PDL-615 control panel user interface emulates the Teledyne Controls Portable Data Loader (P/N 30100).

Note: The PDL software will continuously search the floppy drive for a disk until one is inserted or the operator chooses to load from MSD. The PDL-615 will automatically read the floppy disk and display the name and block count of the first file. The READY indicator will show GREEN when the unit is ready to begin loading. If the avionics loadable systems are active, the load sequence automatically initiates. As each file is loading, the block count will decrement accordingly. When the block count reaches zero, loading of the current file is complete.

Note: The ABORT button may be selected at any time during a load to discontinue the upload processing and return the PDL-615 to its initial state. The ABORT command is initiated by pressing the letter A on the keyboard, <Alt> A, or selecting the ABORT button with the mouse pointer.

Automatic Download

In ARINC 615, downloading is performed by starting an upload session using a Loadable Software Part (LSP) that tells the 615 target (the LRU) to download data to the dataloader (the PMAT 2000). Depending upon the target manufacturer, the Download may be performed as part of an upload or as a separate maintenance task. Downloads performed with the source LSP on a floppy will result in all downloaded data stored on the floppy. Downloads performed with the source LSP on a hard drive will result in all downloaded data stored on the hard drive. Downloaded data and logs are available for review at the end of the load process, as indicated below. The data on the hard drive is also available through the Archive button on the Main Menu.
