MIL-STD-1553B

MilesTek - The Complete MIL-STD-1553B Source

For over 30 years, MilesTek has been your complete source for the design and production of MIL-STD-1553B devices and supporting equipment. MilesTek also has one of the largest stocks of Trompeter/ Emerson Connectivity Solutions products in the world. We can also provide design assistance, component sourcing and custom harness assembly. We share the belief that “flexibility is the key to airpower”, so we will accommodate small and large volume production runs. Please remember that if you have a special request or custom design, we can accommodate you. MilesTek understands “mission critical”. We are proud of our worldwide reputation for quick RFQ turnovers, bus coupler designs, and production timelines. Don't forget to order cable assemblies, terminators, dust caps and other accessories. Stock items can ship same day.

Custom Cable Assembly and Harness Manufacturing

Do you need a low or high volume of custom cable harnesses? Or, maybe you need a large quantity of a standard type of cable harness. Regardless of your company’s cable harness requirements, at MilesTek, we can fulfill it.

Data Bus Couplers

MilesTek stocks and offers the industry's most complete line of data bus couplers for MIL-STD 1553B, including box-style and in-line coupler designs. Configurations include one through eight stub box style couplers, one through four stub inline couplers and bus couplers kits.

Bus & Stub Cables

MilesTek manufactures and stocks complete cable assemblies for data bus applications. These assemblies are built with standard and high-temperature twinaxial cable, standard plugs and right-angle plugs, solder/ clamp or full crimp design, with or without bend reliefs, and bus scope test cables (that combine one center twinax cable and two coax cables).

Adapters

Standard interseries TRB adapters are used to convert connection genders (i.e. male to female), extend the physical distance with cable assemblies, or both.

Bulk Cable

MilesTek stocks and offers both PVC (30-02001) and PFA (Teflon®) (M17/176-00002) jacketed Twinax Cable for lab and high temperature applications, respectively. Bulk spool reels and cut-to-length quantities are available for same day shipment.

Bus & Scope Test Cables

These standard test cable assemblies are designed for implementation in laboratories and testing facilities. MilesTek also handles custom lengths for each assembly leg upon request. 

Connectors

MilesTek stocks and offers solder/ clamp and full crimp TRB Connectors for the most popular 1553B Twinax cables, including (but not limited to) standard and right-angle male plugs, standard and bulkhead female jacks (insulated, non-insulated, feedthru, solder pot, and cable entry). Our large inventory allows for same day shipment of in-stock items.

Relay Devices

Eliminate the task of manually switching cables using MilesTek Relay Devices. These act as on-off switches to connect and disconnect individual remote terminals or entire bus segments to/ from a bus network. Relay devices will reduce long-term wear and tear on data bus couplers and cables.

RFI Dust Caps

RFI dust caps are used for protect open stub and bus jacks from dust, corrosion and radio-frequency interference. These dust caps are particularly useful in laboratory and long-term storage environments. 

Terminators

Bus terminators (78 ohm) are used at the end of each bus. Stub terminators (1000-3000 ohm) are used to simulate a future load from an unspecified device. Alternate terminators are available for laboratory use.

Tools & Hardware

Center contact crimp tools, center contact positioners, bushing & shield crimp tool handles, die sets and M17/176-00002 cable splicing equipment can be found in this section (all sold separately).
