Air Data Test Sets




Air Data Test Set - pitot static leak tester
Ramp or Flight line Air Data Test Sets
D. Marchiori(DMA) manufacture various RVSM Air Data Test Set versions for troubleshooting, flow testing and certification of aircraft pitot-static procedures.

The feature rich MPSXX Air Data Test Set range enable fast calibration of altimeters, airspeed indicators, Mach gauges, vertical speed indicators, Air Data Computers (ADC), testing of Angle of Attack (AoA) system probes and other avionic pitot-static parts. Characteristics include:

RVSM compatible
Controlled from computer or keyboard interface
Precise pressure sensors used to reach high precision
Pumps hour 5,000
Discretionary output interfaces and pitot isolators and internal multiple static
Battery power
Straightforward user interface
Programmable user evaluation sequences
USB port for USB memory device to download evaluation applications and store results
Automatic calibration applications (with PAMBX transport standard)
Broad variety of alternatives
Rapid warm-up
Twin channel instruments in the range include the ultra compact MPS43 that weighs under 4Kg while providing full automatic control with RVSM precision. In addition to our latest civil range ADTS, the MPS45 we also have the MPS34C that provides lab accuracy on the flightline. The 3 station string of instruments control three pressures individually and individually to check the Angle of Attack (AoA) as well as Static Electricity and Pitot pressures, for use with 'Smart' kind pitot tubes. Our latest 3 channel device is the MPS49 with the MPS39C also being available. The MPS40C is a 4 station ADTS with 2 channels of AoA.


The newest MPS45 and test sets that were MPS49 offer up to 12 switched output interfaces, lengthy calibration period and other improved specifications and capabilities.

A broad range of choices can be found for the Air Data Test Sets with some models pre-configured with particular alternatives:

28 VDC operation
IEEE488 control (RS232 control is standard on most models)
ARINC429 interface
Bluetooth control
Ethernet and Wi Fi interfaces
Multiple isolated pitot and static output signals controlled from the keypad
ADWIN software for PC management
Hand held remote control unit
Encoding altimeter readout
Extended ranges of 850 or 1,000 kts
Internal battery
Outside battery to extend battery life
Outside vacuum supply and pressure
All the ramp/flight line ADTS are mobile and may also be used in the lab. ADWIN PC applications allows control of the evaluation systems from a normal PC. In all versions low power consumption allows the greatest accuracy available today and creates minimal heat. Optionally the ADTS can be remotely controlled by a tablet PC with Bluetooth connection (no cables required). The user interface ensures all the functions are readily controlled with a minimum of key strokes. The instruments are prepared for use and within the accuracy band at the judgment of the initialisation / self test procedure.

All the Air Data Test Sets have battery power either fitted as standard or available as an option. This enables the evaluation sets to be operated away from ac power or to continue to be used during power failure. The streamlined MPS43 has battery power just for safe return to ground conditions.

All models are furnished complete with internal pumps running 'on demand' to achieve maximum life duration and low electrical power consumption. Noise level is very low, a welcome feature when the ADTS is employed in the workshop.

30 User evaluation profiles are executable and programmable , each with 26 test points, empowering insistent tests such as for instance FAR43 testing to easily be performed with high repeatability.

Calibration is achieved through user correction of calibration constants with no requirement for hardware adjustments.

Contact the office to discuss any special customer requirements such as radio altimeter automatic evaluation.

Lab Air Data Test Sets
DMA is a leading producer for laboratory use attaining the highest precision and resolution of Air Data Test Set models. The MPS46 is digitally controlled through a keyboard, it uses quite high precision pressure detectors, with an unique characterisation for maximum accuracy (for static channel 2 feet at sea level). Pressure resolution of 0.2 also achievable. The intuitive user interface with touch screen display ensures that all the functions are controlled with at least key presses . The ADTS can be used in avionics ATE systems (stand height only 2U) for automated pitot-static testing through RS232, USB, Ethernet or GPIB/IEEE488. An internal pump or external rack mounted pump unit can be furnished as an option. - pitot static leak tester
