Ramp or Flight line Air Data Test Sets
D. Marchiori(DMA) manufacture various RVSM Air Data Test Set models for troubleshooting, flow testing and certification of aircraft pitot-static systems. - air data test systems
The characteristic rich MPSXX Air Data Test Set variety empower quick 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 keyboard or computer interface
Precise pressure sensors used to attain high accuracy
5,000 hour pumps
Optional internal multiple static and pitot isolators and output ports
Simple user interface
Programmable user evaluation sequences
Bluetooth remote control
USB port for USB memory device to download evaluation software and store results
Automatic calibration applications (with PAMBX transfer standard)
Wide variety of alternatives
Double channel instruments in the range contain the ultra streamlined MPS43 that weighs under 4Kg while providing complete automatic control with RVSM truth. The MPS45, together with our latest civil range ADTS we also have the MPS34C that provides laboratory precision on the flightline. The 3 channel string of instruments control three pressures separately and independently to check the Angle of Attack (AoA) along with Static Electricity and Pitot pressures, for use with 'Smart' type pitot tubes. Our latest 3 channel instrument is the MPS49 with the MPS39C also being available. The MPS40C is a 4 station ADTS with 2 channels of AoA.
MPS49 evaluation sets and the latest MPS45 offer up to 12 switched output ports, drawn-out calibration period and other improved specifications and abilities.
A broad variety of options can be found for the Air Data Test Sets with some versions pre-configured with specific alternatives:
IEEE488 control (RS232 control is standard on most versions)
Multiple remote pitot and static outputs controlled in the keypad
ADWIN applications for PC control
Hand held remote control unit
Encoding altimeter readout
Extended ranges of 1,000 or 850 kts
External battery to prolong battery life
External pressure and vacuum supply
All the ramp/flight line ADTS are portable and can also be used in the laboratory. ADWIN PC software enables control of the test systems from a conventional PC. In all models low power consumption generates negligible heat and enables the greatest accuracy 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 at the least key strokes. The devices are all ready to be used and within the accuracy band at the judgment of the initialisation / self evaluation procedure.
All the Air Data Test Sets have battery power fitted as standard or available as an option. This allows the evaluation sets to be controlled away from ac power or to continue to be used during power failure. The compact MPS43 has battery power just for safe return to earth conditions.
All models are furnished complete with internal pumps functioning 'on demand' to reach maximum life duration and low electrical power consumption. Noise level is very low, a welcome attribute when the ADTS is used in the workshop.
30 User evaluation profiles are programmable and executable with 26 test points, enabling insistent evaluations for example FAR43 testing to easily be performed with high repeatability.
Calibration is accomplished through user correction of calibration constants minus the condition for hardware adjustments.
Contact the office to discuss any specific customer requirements for example radio altimeter automatic evaluation.
Lab Air Data Test Sets
DMA is a top manufacturer of Air Data Test Set versions for lab use attaining the highest accuracy and resolution. The MPS46 is digitally controlled through a computer keyboard, it uses quite high accuracy pressure sensors, with a specific 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 all the functions are controlled with at the least key presses . The ADTS can 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 external rack mounted pump unit can be provided as a choice. - air data test systems
