The Laversab 6600-L (6600L) automated pitot static tester is ideal for use on aircraft with SmartProbe capable of measuring AOA using air data. The tester has one static output (Ps1), one pitot output (Pt) and a third output (Ps2) which can be used to simulate either AOA or AOS. Using the small and light-weight remote unit, a user can operate the tester from the cockpit and test the entire pitot and static system of the aircraft. The tester includes built-in vacuum and pressure pumps and emergency manual bleed-down valves. The high accuracy of this unit meets all RVSM requirements.
Three Outputs - In addition to the primary static and pitot outputs, a third output is provided. This output can be used as a secondary static, a differential static or secondary pitot. This output allows the user to create a second altitude (in feet or meters), a second absolute pressure (in inHg or mbar), a differential pressure for simulating AOA (in Diff.inHg or Diff mbar), or a differential pressure for generating a second airspeed (in knots or kmph) to simulate AOS. When the third output is not used, the tester operates exactly like our 2-output tester (Model 6300).
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.
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 pumps 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.
When is this unit used?
Ideal tester for use with aircraft equipped with SmartProbe that have the ability to sense AOA and/ or AOS.
Leak-checks and Air-data-system accuracy-checks on all RVSM aircraft including aircraft with SmartProbe™. The tester can be used either in 3-output mode or 2-output mode. In 2-output mode, this tester operates exactly like our Model 6300.
When the 6600 is used with the OSM (Output Switching Module) it is possible to completely automate leak checks, which can be performed either individually on each port of the aircraft probes, or simultaneously on all ports. Using the OSM makes it easy to isolate leaks and the connection of the hoses and adapters to the aircraft is greatly simplified.
