Model 6500/6500-HA: Automated Air Data Test Set

Model 6500/6500-HA: Automated Air Data Test Set

NSN: 4920 01 375 7472 (Model 6500)

The 6500 & 6500-HA (High-Accuracy) Air Data Test Sets require only a pressure source and a vacuum source and are extremely simple to use. They can be used to test and calibrate altimeters, airspeed / Mach indicators, Climb indicators, Flight data recorders, Air data computers, and EPR indicators. The high accuracy of these units meets all RVSM requirements. Also, they need 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 front panel keypad of these units.

Features

RVSM compliant
6500: The high accuracy of the tester and NIST-traceable calibration make the tester fully RVSM-compliant.
6500-HA: The very high accuracy of the tester and NIST-traceable calibration make the tester fully RVSM-compliant.
Calibration period
6500/6500-HA: 1 year
Automated operation
6500: 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, ± 0.1 knot or ±0.001 inHg.
6500-HA: 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, ± 0.1 knot or ± 0.0002 inHg
Programmable limits
6500/6500-HA: User-programmable limits for altitude, airspeed, Mach and VSI provide protection to the aircraft.
“Jog” and “Hold” features
6500/6500-HA: 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
6500-HA: Brings Pitot and Static outputs to ambient “ground” pressure after completing a test.
“Profiles” feature
6500/6500-HA: 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
6500/6500-HA: 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 requirement
6500/6500-HA: External pressure (Dry Air only) and vacuum supplies are required. The PVS is ideally suited for providing these supplies.
Local display and keypad
6500/6500-HA: The local display and keypad are the operator interface for the tester. All valid parameters, including altitude, climb and airspeed, are clearly displayed simultaneously on a single screen on the local display.

Applications

6500/6500-HA: Ideal tester for use in an instrument-shop for testing and calibrating ADC’s, altimeters, airspeed indicators, VSI’s, cabin pressure controllers, FDR’s and other air-data instruments.
6500/6500-HA: Can be rack-mounted in ATE systems
6500-HA: The very high accuracy of this tester makes it suitable for use as a convenient Transfer Standard.
