31/10/2018 - Barfield to Distribute Universal Synaptics Products Globally

Barfield signs exclusive agreement to distribute Universal Synaptics Intermittent Fault Detection & Isolation products in global commercial aerospace industry.

Miami, October 31, 2018 - A major aviation industry player in the Americas, Barfield, an AFI KLM E&M subsidiary, is now the distributor of Utah based manufacturer, Universal Synaptics. Universal Synaptics supplies and manufactures the Intermittent Fault Detection and Isolation System™ (IFDIS™), the portable Voyager Intermittent Fault Detector™ (VIFD™) and derivatives.

"In the United States and elsewhere, we are present at all the biggest MRO trade shows, which allows us to give this revolutionary intermittent fault detection system the visibility it deserves. At a time when more and more industry players are becoming concerned about efficiency and cost reduction tools Universal Synaptics IFD is the answer to this growing need," says Hervé Page, Barfield's Chief Executive Officer.

A market-first patented neural-sensing circuitry
Universal Synaptics' technology has been adopted by the US military. In addition, the company developed the Intermittent Fault Detector (IFD) specifically with intermittence detection and isolation requirements in mind. The IFD can overcome the testing limitations of a continuity test. Universal Synaptics advanced technology simultaneously and continuously monitors all unit under test (UUT) circuits, detecting any and all intermittent faults that occur, even as short as *50 nanoseconds (0.00000005 seconds) in duration. Never before has there been a more comprehensive and complete wiring diagnostic solution.

"Together, Barfield and Universal Synaptics will provide the commercial aerospace industry proven solutions to improve dispatch reliability while reducing cost" said Ken Anderson, Universal Synaptics President and CEO. "This strategic partnership combines two innovative companies with a united focus on effectively reducing intermittent / No Fault Found in electronic systems."

This agreement will strengthen the partnership between the two companies allowing Barfield to introduce the IFD to the commercial aviation sector.
