Air Data Test Set

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

The characteristic abundant MPSXX Air Data Test Set variety enable 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. Features include:

RVSM compatible
Controlled from keyboard or computer interface
Precise pressure detectors used to reach high precision
Pumps hour 5,000
Elective internal multiple static and pitot isolators and output ports
Battery power
Straightforward user interface
Programmable user test sequences
USB port for USB memory device to download test applications and store results
Automatic calibration applications (with PAMBX transfer standard)
Broad range of alternatives
Quick warm-up
Dual channel instruments in the range include the ultra compact MPS43 that weighs under supplying automatic control that is full with RVSM correctness. Along with our latest range that is civil ADTS, the MPS45 we additionally have the MPS34C that provides laboratory correctness on the flightline. The 3 channel string of instruments control three pressures individually and independently to confirm the Angle of Attack (AoA) in addition to Static Electricity and Pitot pressures, to be used with 'Smart' kind pitot tubes. Our latest 3 channel device is the MPS49 with the MPS39C also being accessible. The MPS40C is a 4 station ADTS with 2 channels of AoA.

The most recent MPS45 and MPS49 evaluation sets offer up to 12 switched output ports, drawn-out calibration period and other improved specifications and capacities.

A wide variety of options can be found for the Air Data Test Sets with some models pre-configured with specific alternatives:

28 VDC operation
IEEE488 control (RS232 control is standard on most models)
ARINC429 interface
Bluetooth control
Ethernet and Wi Fi interfaces
Multiple isolated pitot and static outputs controlled in the keypad
ADWIN software for PC management
Hand held remote control unit
Expanded ranges of 1,000 or 850 kts
Internal battery
Outside battery to prolong battery life
Outside vacuum supply and pressure
All the ramp/flight line ADTS are mobile and can also be used in the laboratory. ADWIN PC software allows control of the test systems from a standard PC. In all versions low power consumption creates insignificant heat and allows the greatest precision available today. 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 at the least key strokes. The devices are ready for use and within the precision band at the conclusion of the initialisation / self evaluation process.

All the Air Data Test Sets available as an alternative or have battery power fitted as standard. This allows 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 only for safe return to ground states.

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

30 User evaluation profiles are executable and programmable with 26 evaluation points, empowering insistent evaluations such as FAR43 testing to readily be performed with high repeatability.

Calibration is accomplished through user adjustment of calibration constants without the condition for hardware adjustments.

Laboratory Air Data Test Sets
DMA is a top producer of Air Data Test Set models for laboratory use attaining the highest accuracy and resolution. The MPS46 is digitally controlled through a computer keyboard, it uses very high precision pressure sensors, with a specific characterisation for maximum precision (for static channel 2 feet at sea level). The intuitive user interface with touch screen display ensures that the functions are controlled with at the least 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 provided as an alternative.
