Flight or ramp line Air Data Test Sets
D. Marchiori(DMA) produce various RVSM Air Data Test Set models for troubleshooting, flow testing and certification of aircraft pitot-static procedures. - air data test systems
The characteristic abundant MPSXX Air Data Test Set variety enable accelerated calibration of altimeters, airspeed indicators, Mach gauges, vertical speed indicators, Air Data Computers (ADC), testing of Angle of Attack (AoA) system probes and other avionic pitot-static components. Attributes include:
Controlled from computer or keyboard interface
Exact pressure detectors used to reach high precision
Pumps hour 5,000
Engineered to minimize power consumption
Optional output ports and pitot isolators and internal multiple static
Simple user interface
Programmable user test sequences
Bluetooth remote control
USB port for USB memory device to download test programs and store results
Automatic calibration software (with PAMBX transport standard)
Wide variety of options
Double channel instruments in the range contain the ultra streamlined MPS43 that weighs under providing complete automatic control with RVSM precision. The MPS45, along with our latest civil range ADTS we additionally have the MPS34C that supplies lab precision on the flightline. The 3 channel chain of instruments control three pressures separately and individually to verify the Angle of Attack (AoA) together with Static Electricity and Pitot pressures, to be used with 'Smart' type pitot tubes. Our latest 3 channel instrument is the MPS49 with the MPS39C also being accessible. The MPS40C is a 4 station ADTS with 2 stations of AoA.
The latest MPS45 and MPS49 test sets offer up to 12 switched output interfaces, extended calibration period and other improved specifications and capabilities.
An extensive variety of options can be found for the Air Data Test Sets with some models pre-configured with certain alternatives:
28 VDC operation
IEEE488 control (RS232 control is standard on most models)
Bluetooth control by tablet PC
Ethernet and Wi Fi interfaces
Multiple remote pitot and static outputs controlled from your keypad
ADWIN software for PC management
Encoding altimeter readout
Expanded ranges of 1,000 or 850 kts
Outside battery to prolong battery life
Outside vacuum supply and pressure
All the ramp/flight line ADTS are portable and also can be used in the lab. ADWIN PC applications allows control of the test systems from a standard PC. In all versions low power consumption generates negligible heat and enables the greatest precision available today. 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 easily controlled with no less than key strokes. The devices are ready for use and within the truth band at the conclusion of the initialisation / self test process.
All the Air Data Test Sets available as an option or have battery power either fitted as standard. This enables the evaluation sets to be operated away from ac power or to continue to be used during power failure. The streamlined MPS43 has battery power just for safe return to earth conditions.
All models are furnished complete with internal pumps running 'on demand' to achieve low electrical power consumption and maximum life duration. Noise level is really low, a welcome attribute when the ADTS is used in the workshop.
30 User evaluation profiles are executable and programmable with 26 test points, empowering repetitive tests such as FAR43 testing to readily be performed with high repeatability.
Calibration is accomplished through user adjustment of calibration constants without the requirement for hardware adjustments.
Contact the office to discuss any particular customer requirements such as radio altimeter automatic test.
Laboratory Air Data Test Sets
DMA is a leading manufacturer of Air Data Test Set models for lab use attaining resolution and the highest precision. The MPS46 is digitally controlled through a computer keyboard, it uses quite high precision pressure detectors, with a special characterisation for maximum accuracy (for static channel 2 feet at sea level). The intuitive user interface with touch screen display ensures that all the functions are controlled with at least key presses . The ADTS can be used in avionics ATE systems (stand height just 2U) for automated pitot-static testing through RS232, USB, Ethernet or GPIB/IEEE488. An internal pump or external rack mounted pump unit can be furnished as an alternative. - air data test systems
