Ramp or Flight line Air Data Test Sets

D. Marchiori(DMA) fabricate various RVSM Air Data Test Set models for troubleshooting, leak testing and certification of aircraft pitot-static procedures. — pitot static leak tester

The attribute rich MPSXX Air Data Test Set variety empower fast 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 parts. Attributes include:

RVSM compatible
Controlled
Controlled from keyboard or computer interface
Accurate pressure sensors used to attain high precision
Pumps hour 5,000
Engineered to minimize power consumption
Discretionary internal multiple static and pitot isolators and output interfaces
Battery power
Simple user interface
Programmable user evaluation sequences
Bluetooth remote control
USB port for USB memory device to download evaluation programs and store results
Automatic calibration applications (with PAMBX transport standard)
Extensive range of choices
Fast warm-up
Double channel instruments in the range include the ultra streamlined MPS43 that weighs under 4Kg while providing RVSM truth to complete automatic control. As well as our latest civil range ADTS, the MPS45 we also have the MPS34C that supplies laboratory precision on the flightline. The 3 channel series of instruments control three pressures separately and individually to check the Angle of Attack (AoA) together with Static and Pitot pressures, to be used with ‘Smart’ type pitot tubes. Our latest 3 channel instrument is the MPS49 with the MPS39C also being available. The MPS40C is a 4 channel ADTS with 2 channels of AoA.

MPS49 evaluation sets and the newest MPS45 offer up to 12 switched output interfaces, lengthy calibration time and other improved specifications and capabilities.

A broad variety of options are available for the Air Data Test Sets with some versions pre-configured with particular choices:

28 VDC operation
IEEE488 control (RS232 control is standard on most versions)
ARINC429 interface
Bluetooth control
Ethernet and Wi Fi interfaces
Multiple remote pitot and static outputs controlled from the keypad
ADWIN applications for PC control
Hand held remote control unit
Expanded ranges of 850 or 1,000 kts
Internal battery
Outside battery to prolong battery life
External pressure and vacuum supply
All the ramp/flight line ADTS are mobile and can also be used in the laboratory. ADWIN PC software enables control of the evaluation systems from a normal PC. In all versions low power consumption creates minimal heat and lets the highest accuracy available now. Optionally the ADTS can be remotely controlled by a tablet PC with Bluetooth connection (no cables needed). The user interface ensures all the functions are easily controlled with at least key strokes. The instruments are all prepared for use and within the accuracy band at the judgment of the initialisation / self test procedure.

All the Air Data Test Sets have battery power fitted as standard or available as an option. This enables the test 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 states.

All models are supplied complete with internal pumps functioning ‘on demand’ to reach maximum life duration and low electrical power consumption. Noise level is quite low, a welcome feature when the ADTS can be used in the workshop.

30 User test profiles are programmable and executable , each with 26 test points, empowering insistent tests such as FAR43 testing to easily be performed with high repeatability.

Calibration is accomplished through user correction of calibration constants with no condition for hardware corrections.

Contact the office to discuss any particular customer requirements for example radio altimeter automatic evaluation.

Lab Air Data Test Sets
DMA is a top maker of Air Data Test Set versions for laboratory use achieving resolution and the highest accuracy. The MPS46 is digitally controlled through a computer keyboard, it uses quite high accuracy pressure sensors, with a specific characterisation for maximum accuracy (for static channel 2 feet at sea level). 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 only 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 a choice. — pitot static leak tester
