Model 6300-M3: Military Pitot Static Tester

Model 6300-M3: Military Pitot Static Tester

NSN: 4920 01 569 1292

The 6300-M3 Automated Tester is designed to connect directly to a Military aircraft’s Pitot and Static system. Using the small and light-weight Remote unit a user can operate the tester from the cockpit and use it to test the entire pitot and static system of the aircraft, including altimeters, climb indicators, airspeed / Mach indicators, air data computers, and auto-pilots. The tester includes built-in vacuum and pressure pumps and emergency manual bleed-down valves. The operator simply connects power, and the pitot and static hoses, to make the unit operational. The high accuracy of this unit meets the latest RVSM requirements. Also, it needs to be calibrated only once a year. The use of “Profiles” makes it possible for the operator to run through a test using only a single key on the Remote unit. The wide operating temp. makes it ideal for military applications.

Features

RVSM compliant
The high accuracy of the tester and NIST-traceable calibration make the tester fully RVSM-compliant and suitable for use on all RVSM-compliant aircraft.
Calibration period:
1 year
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.
Programmable limits
User-programmable limits for altitude, airspeed, Mach and VSI provide protection to the aircraft.
“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.
“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 20 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 high-capacity dual vacuum pumps and pressure pump provide the pressure and vacuum source for the unit. The pressure system includes a filter and membrane dryer to provide clean dry air for the entire system.
Remote unit
The Remote unit is the operator interface for the tester. It is small and light enough to be used in the cockpit. The tester can be turned On and Off from the Remote. All valid parameters, including altitude, climb and airspeed, are clearly displayed simultaneously on a single screen on the remote.
Manual Vent
The tester includes precision metering valves to enable manual venting of the aircraft’s pitot static system, in the event of power-loss

Applications

Leak-checks and Air-data-system accuracy-checks on all military and commercial fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters and UAV’s.
Leak-checks and Air-data-system accuracy-checks on all RVSM aircraft and military fighter/attack aircraft.
Ideally suited for military applications.
