Model 6250: RVSM Automated Pitot Static Tester (for light jets)

The Model 6250 is the ideal RVSM Pitot Static tester for light RVSM Jets. It is used to perform leak-checks and accuracy checks on RVSM aircraft. Accuracy checks are typically performed on altimeters, airspeed indicators and VSI’s. The high accuracy of the Pitot output is ideally suited for checks at low airspeeds. The Model 6250 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.

RVSM & Automated operation
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. This RVSM tester’s low price makes it very affordable
Calibration period:
1 year
Programmable limits
User-programmable limits for altitude, airspeed, Mach, VSI and airspeed-rate provide protection to the aircraft.
Negative-airspeed protection
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.
“Ground” feature
Brings Pitot and Static outputs to ambient “ground” pressure after completing a test. Ambient pressure is constantly monitored.
“Profiles” feature
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.
Leak checks
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.
Remote 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.

Applications

Leak-checks and accuracy-checks on light jets, helicopters and UAV’s
Leak-checks and accuracy-checks on small-volume RVSM aircraft
Ideal for line-maintenance by commercial airlines
