ADTS 403 - Air Data Test System

ADTS 403 - Air Data Test System

The ADTS 403 is the latest in a series of reliable, high accuracy, air data test systems designed for avionics laboratory or aircraft ATE rig use.
The compact, rack-mount design has evolved as a result of GE’s continuous research and development, customer feedback and experience gained from manufacturing thousands of automatic pressure controllers. This has enabled performance, ease of maintenance and operational simplicity to be optimized.

ADTS 403 Specifications

  •  High accuracy, RVSM compliant
  •  Legacy ATE systems compatible
  •  Protection for unit under test
  •  Compatible with existing IEEE 488 systems
  •  12 month recalibration period
  •  Programmable test routines and limits
  •  4U high 19" Rack

The ADTS 403 is the latest in a series of reliable, high accuracy, air data test systems designed for avionics laboratory or aircraft ATE rig use.

 

The ADTS 403 is a 483 mm (19 in) rack mounted instrument with a local front panel display and keypad. A remote hand held terminal is optional and a matched separate pressure/vacuum supply unit PV 103R is available.
