Function card modules include options for analog I/O including conditioning for IEPE and strain, as well as digital I/O, serial, and counter/timers. Bustec tools address applications that have needs for accuracy of static signals such as voltage, temperature, and pressure, or dynamic signals acquired at higher speeds, as well as closed loop control and simulation.

Our Vision

Bustec products successfully serve applications that include engine testing, automotive and missile testing, wind tunnel data acquisition and control, acoustics, vibration applications, aircraft component testing, and a wide range of other demanding applications. Satisfied, industry-leading Bustec customers include AgustaWestland, Airbus, Atos-Origin, Blue Origin, Boeing, Boston Scientific, EADS, EDF, Eurocopter, General Dynamics, Honeywell, IABG, Lockheed Martin, Los Alamos, NASA, Northrop Grumman, Rohde & Schwarz, Rolls-Royce, Sandia National Laboratories, and Siemens.

The Company

Bustec was founded in 1997 by Dr. Fred Bloennigen, current Bustec CEO. After completing his Ph.D. in France in 1985, Dr. Bloennigen began his career as a nuclear and elementary particle physicist at the University of Berkeley in California before returning to Europe as an engineer for a large American data acquisition and test company. In 1997, Dr. Bloennigen founded Bustec in Ireland and in 2000 opened a branch in the United States. With proven systems and consistent reliability, Bustec quickly became the leading supplier of high-performance data acquisition and test products to customers in power generation, aerospace and defense, and medical devices industries.
