- Intuitive Graphical User Interface
- RS-232, IEEE-488.2 VGA, USB and LAN (optional) Interfaces
The ADC-2575 calibrator is designed as an RVSM compliant Air Data Controller Monitor. The calibrator can be used to test instrumentation as a bench top unit or remotely with Automated Test Equipment (ATE). As a controller, the ADC requires external pressure and vacuum sources. The extended operational ranges can support testing of both commercial and military air data instrumentation, pressure transducers and pressure test gauges. Common instrumentation includes Altimeters, Airspeed indicators, Air Data computers, Rate of Climb indicators, Cabin Pressure instrumentation, Mach meters, pressure transducers, absolute and digital pressure gauges, air data monitors and air data computers.
The ADC software provides a familiar and intuitive graphical user interface. The ADC can be operated manually through local controls, automatically through RS-232 or IEEE-488.2 GPIB, or semi-automated using test program function. Semi-automated testing reduces touch labor during test by running pre-programmed routines with defined set points, eliminating the manual set point entry. This allows the operator to quickly run the unit under test through the procedure without any deviation from the routine. When operating with ATE Systems, the ADC-2575 can be rack mounted and connected remotely using RS-232 or IEEE-488 GPIB.
The ADC features a brilliant 10.4-inch display with a PCAP touchscreen which allows the calibrator to be controlled directly from the front panel. An on-screen keyboard appears automatically when operator input is required. Additionally, a USB keyboard and mouse are included with the calibrator for auxiliary data input. The digi-quartz transducers provide excellent reliability, stability and performance. Corrections are performed through software requiring no mechanical adjustments and are capable of holding their accuracy for a period of one (1) year.

This allows operators to quickly run the unit under test through the procedure without any deviation from the routine. The ADC-2575 can measure, graph and record tolerance and accuracy errors. This data can be printed for reports and quality assurance records or stored within the unit. The ADC-2550C is an ideal solution for Automated Test Equipment (ATE) and rack-mounted programs. All ports are located on the rear panel and RS-232 remote interface are available.
The ADC is designed with both hardware and software safety features designed for maximum protection when testing. The calibrator features input pressure regulation, over-range, over-limit and over-pressurization protection. Micro-porous filters and screening prevent debris from entering the system. The calibrator is equipped with pressure relief valves to protect the pneumatic system components and the unit under test (UUT) from damage. In the event that the ADC loses power, the front panel manual vent can be used to safely vent both the calibrator and the UUT to ambient. The Test Program function allows the operator to create virtually unlimited number of test routines for automated testing. These test routines save time and provide improved test consistency.
