Indicator Test Sets
Astronics Test Systems has developed a modern, highly flexible system for the testing of cockpit indicators used on fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.
The Racal Instruments™ Indicator Test Set (ITS) provides a modern, universal chassis-based testing suite that replaces older, individual manual testers designed for use with single instrument types.
Tailored for the wide variety of indicators that equip both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, the Indicator Test Set utilizes commercial-off-the-shelf components and open architecture to accommodate both existing and future test requirements. Its configuration – including the stimulus and measurement components, packaging and Graphic User Interface (GUI) – are customer-definable based on the specific indicators to be tested.
The Indicator Test Set can be used in a manual mode or programmed for automated testing. This adaptable system uses our IsolATE™ software coding technique to provide long-term future-proofing against test equipment obsolescence.
Ruggedized to meet a variety of military operational environments (with a rack mount kit also available), the system has a 17-inch touch-screen LCD control panel and comes standard with a quick-disconnect interface test adapter (ITA) to enable easy reconfiguration.
