ADTS 505 - Air Data Test Set

ADTS 505 - Air Data Test Set

The ADTS 505 is the latest in a series of reliable, compact and high accuracy Air Data Test Sets.The flightline design has evolved as a result of GE Infrastructure Sensing 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.
