Model 6200: Automated Pitot Static Tester (Non-RVSM)
The Model 6200 is a Pitot Static tester targeted for helicopters and Non-RVSM aircraft. It is approved for most Helicopters and is used to perform leak checks and accuracy checks on the Pitot Static systems. Accuracy check is performed on typical flight instrumentation – altimeters, airspeed indicators and VSI’s – and can be done at low airspeeds. The Model 6200 includes a Remote unit with large keypad and display, a removable 8-hour battery (optional), wide operating temperature (optional), and “profiles” to accelerate testing. The unit can be controlled by an iPad or other tablets.

Simply enter the target set-points for altitude and airspeed and the unit automatically achieves the targets, ramping at the programmed rates. Control at the set-point is stable within ± 1 foot and ± 0.1 knot. The tester’s low price makes it very affordable
User-programmable limits for altitude, airspeed, Mach, VSI, and airspeed-rate provide protection to the aircraft.
An internal differential-pressure relief valve provides protection against negative airspeed.
|Removable Battery (Optional)
The removable battery allows for 8 hours of continuous operation. Re-charge time is only 8 hours.
|Low-temperature operation (optional)
With optional internal heaters, the unit can be operated down to -40°C
|“Jog” and “Hold” features
Set-points can be “jogged” up or down in small increments. Ramping to a set-point can be put on “hold” and controlled at the current measured value.
Brings Pitot and Static outputs to ambient “ground” pressure after completing a test. Ambient pressure is constantly monitored.
A profile of set-points can be downloaded from a PC, allowing the user to step through the set-points using a single key. Each profile can have up to 50 set-points and 15 profiles can be stored in the unit.
Pitot and Static leak-checks can be performed either independently or simultaneously. Three leak-timers can be programmed to perform timed leaks between 1 to 20 minutes. The display of “instant” leak rates provides immediate feedback to the user.
|Pressure & Vacuum source
Built-in diaphragm pumps provide the pressure and vacuum source for the unit.
The Remote unit is the operator interface for the tester. It features a sunlight-readable 5.8” color display, a back-lit keypad and a touch-screen (which can be disabled). All operations are performed from a single screen which displays all pertinent parameters.
|Manual Vent Valves
On the loss of power, the unit maintains pressure. The unit can be manually vented to “Ground” at a controlled rate using precision metering valves.
