The Model 7750i Air Data Test Set represents the latest generation Air Data Test Set (ADTS), incorporating a unique quartz sensor having unequalled precision and long term stability with the latest pressure control technology. The Model 7750i ADTS provides high performance measurement and control of all air data parameters.
The Model 7750i is a laboratory ADTS for calibrating a wide variety of avionics instrumentation such as altimeters, airspeed indicators, rate of climb meters, Mach meters, air data computers and engine-based control systems that rely on accurate control and measurement of pressure. The 7750i can be used to calibrate devices that are required to meet the Reduced Vertical Separation Minimal (RVSM) requirements, controlling altitude to within two feet (better than 0.003 in Hg) at sea level. Additionally, the 7750i provides precision rate control for both altitude and airspeed.
The Model 7750i is ideal for use in Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) systems. The seven-inch height (4U) allows easy integration into comprehensive test systems. Additionally, an IEEE-488 interface is provided for PC-based control. The 7750i can be set to emulate previous generation ADTS (Model 6610), eliminating the need to alter existing software.
Automatic go to ground
Upon selecting the go to ground command, the 7750i safely controls the pressure to the current, local barometric pressure. The user can then disconnect the device under test (DUT) without exposing sensitive instruments to a potential pressure transient or shock.
Leak test mode
A separate mode is provided for performing leak checks prior to beginning an actual calibration.
Protecting the device under test
In order to protect the DUT, the operator can program high and low limit settings for:
- Rate of climb
- Negative Qc
- ARINC 565 envelope
Automatic volume characterization
The 7750i automatically tunes the controller into external volumes ranging from 80 to 1000 cubic centimeters (5 to 60 cubic inches). This allows a large degree of flexibility for the configuration of the test system and the type of aircraft and components to be tested. For component manufacturers, a large number of devices can be tested simultaneously on a single manifold.
As with any instrument, regular zeroing is suggested to achieve maximum performance. This task is now automated and can be performed at the push of a button, or over the PC interfaces. The 7750i incorporates the vacuum sensor onboard; no separate or external vacuum gauges or sensors are required. In addition, only one vacuum pump is required to operate and zero the 7750i ADTS. Zeroing is performed in 30 to 45 minutes using the specified vacuum pump.
Avionics and pressure units
The Model 7750i displays the common avionics units including feet and meters for altitude, calibrated airspeed in knots, km/hr, and Mach with corresponding rate displays for each unit per minute. It can also display pressure units.
High performance for fixed-wing or rotary aircraft
Although the standard configuration offered is a Ps range of 32 in Hg and a Qc range of 68 in Hg, we also offer custom ranges. For example, for exclusive testing of rotary aircraft, a Qc range of 32 in Hg can be provided, increasing performance in the lower airspeed ranges. For other custom ranges please consult factory.
