Flight or ramp line Air Data Test Sets

D. Marchiori(DMA) fabricate various RVSM Air Data Test Set versions for troubleshooting, leak testing and certification of aircraft pitot-static procedures. - air data test systems

The attribute abundant MPSXX Air Data Test Set variety 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 parts. Features include:

RVSM compatible
Controlled from computer or keyboard interface
Precise pressure sensors used to reach high accuracy
5,000 hour pumps
Engineered to minimize power consumption
Optional 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 software (with PAMBX transfer standard)
Wide variety of alternatives
Fast warm-up
Twin channel instruments in the range contain the ultra compact MPS43 that weighs under 4Kg while supplying automatic control that is full with RVSM truth. The MPS45, in addition to our latest civil range ADTS we also have the MPS34C that provides lab accuracy on the flightline. The 3 station string of instruments control three pressures separately and independently to confirm the Angle of Attack (AoA) along with Static and Pitot pressures, to be used 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.

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

An extensive range of alternatives are available for the Air Data Test Sets with some versions pre-configured with particular choices:

IEEE488 control (RS232 control is standard on most versions)
ARINC429 interface
Bluetooth control
Multiple isolated static and pitot output signals controlled in the keypad
ADWIN applications for PC management
Hand held remote control unit
Encoding altimeter readout
Extended ranges of 1,000 or 850 kts
Internal battery
Outside battery to extend battery life
External vacuum supply and pressure
All the ramp/flight line ADTS are mobile and also can be used in the laboratory. ADWIN PC software enables control of the test systems from a normal PC. In all versions low power consumption creates insignificant heat and lets the greatest 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 readily controlled with no less than key strokes. The devices are all prepared to be used and within the precision band at the judgment of the initialisation / self evaluation process.

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

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

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

Calibration is accomplished through user correction of calibration constants minus the condition for hardware corrections.

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

Laboratory Air Data Test Sets
DMA is a leading producer for lab use achieving the highest precision and resolution of Air Data Test Set models. The MPS46 is digitally controlled through a computer keyboard, it uses quite high precision pressure sensors, with an unique characterisation for maximum precision (for static channel 2 feet at sea level). Pressure resolution of 0.2 Pa.is also achievable. The intuitive user interface with touch screen display ensures that the functions are controlled with at least key presses . The ADTS may 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 outside rack mounted pump unit can be furnished as an alternative.  - air data test systems
