Air Data Test Sets



Ramp or Flight line Air Data Test Sets- air data test systems
D. Marchiori(DMA) produce various RVSM Air Data Test Set models for troubleshooting, leak testing and certification of aircraft pitot-static systems.

The feature rich MPSXX Air Data Test Set range empower accelerated calibration of altimeters, airspeed indicators, Mach indicators, vertical speed indicators, Air Data Computers (ADC), testing of Angle of Attack (AoA) system probes and other avionic pitot-static components. Attributes include:

RVSM compatible
Controlled from computer or keyboard interface
Accurate pressure detectors used to reach high precision
5,000 hour pumps
Discretionary internal multiple static and pitot isolators and output ports
Battery power
Simple user interface
Programmable user test sequences
Bluetooth remote control
USB port for USB memory device to download test software and store results
Automatic calibration applications (with PAMBX transport standard)
Wide variety of options
Speedy warm-up
Twin channel instruments in the range contain the ultra streamlined MPS43 that weighs under providing automatic control that is complete with RVSM correctness. As well as our latest range that is civil ADTS, the MPS45 we also have the MPS34C that provides lab precision on the flightline. The 3 station string of devices control three pressures separately and independently to check the Angle of Attack (AoA) in addition to Static Electricity and Pitot pressures, for use with 'Smart' kind pitot tubes. Our latest 3 channel instrument is the MPS49 with the MPS39C also being accessible. The MPS40C is a 4 channel ADTS with 2 stations of AoA.

MPS49 evaluation sets and the newest MPS45 offer up to 12 changed output ports, lengthy calibration time and other improved specifications and abilities.

An extensive variety of choices can be found for the Air Data Test Sets with some models pre-configured with certain choices:

IEEE488 control (RS232 control is standard on most models)
ARINC429 interface
Bluetooth control
Multiple remote pitot and static output signals controlled from the keypad
ADWIN software for PC management
Encoding altimeter readout
Expanded ranges of 850 or 1,000 kts
Internal battery
Outside battery to prolong battery life
Outside pressure and vacuum supply
All the ramp/flight line ADTS are portable and can also be used in the laboratory. ADWIN PC software allows control of the test systems from a normal PC. In all versions insignificant heat is generated by low power consumption and enables the highest accuracy available now. Optionally the ADTS can be remotely controlled by a tablet PC with Bluetooth connection (no cables required). The user interface ensures all the functions are readily controlled with a minimum of key strokes. The devices are ready to be used and within the precision band at the decision of the initialisation / self evaluation process.

All the Air Data Test Sets have battery power either fitted as standard or available as an alternative. This allows the evaluation sets to be controlled away from ac power or to continue to be used during power failure. The streamlined MPS43 has battery power only for safe return to ground conditions.

All versions are furnished complete with internal pumps functioning 'on demand' to attain low electrical power consumption and maximum life duration. Noise level is really low, a welcome feature when the ADTS is employed in the workshop.

30 User test profiles are programmable and executable with 26 test points, enabling persistent evaluations such as FAR43 testing to readily be performed with high repeatability.

Calibration is achieved through user correction of calibration constants minus the requirement for hardware corrections.

Contact the office to discuss any specific customer requirements such as radio altimeter automatic evaluation.

Lab Air Data Test Sets
DMA is a leading producer of Air Data Test Set versions for lab use achieving the greatest accuracy and resolution. The MPS46 is digitally controlled through a keyboard, it uses very high precision pressure sensors, with a special characterisation for maximum accuracy (for static channel 2 feet at sea level). Pressure resolution of 0.2 also achievable. The intuitive user interface with touch screen display ensures that the functions are controlled with a minimum of key presses . The ADTS may be used in avionics ATE systems (rack height just 2U) for automated pitot-static testing through RS232, USB, Ethernet or GPIB/IEEE488. An internal pump or outside rack mounted pump unit can be supplied as an alternative.- air data test systems
