PPCM Precision Pressure Controller-Monitor

Product Details

The Precision Pressure Controller-Monitor (PPCM) is a calibration standard commonly used as a secondary standard. The PPCM provides accurate testing of air data instrumentation. The PPC-M provides a stable, repeatable and reliable standard for pressure calibration with ease of use and remote control capability through IEEE-488, located on the rear panel. . Raptor has full calibration and repair capabilities to support all PPCM systems.

The Precision Pressure Controller-Monitor (PPCM) is a calibration standard commonly used as a secondary or transfer pressure standard. The PPCM provides accurate testing of air data instrumentation. The operating software provides fast, error-free control of the operating pressures and it monitors internal functions to prevent damage to the unit under test. Vent and relief valves are also included within the unit to further protect the unit being tested.

With measurement technology similar to the TTU-205, the PPCM provides a stable, repeatable and reliable standard for pressure calibration with ease of use and remote control capability. This capability is provided through the IEEE-488 interface port located on the rear panel of the instrument. The PPCM can also be used to measure externally generated pressures. The PPCM operates in one of five modes:

Modes of Operation

  • Dual Control – both channels control in respective units and are preselected by the user
  • Altitude Control – only the Altitude channel is controlling, the Airspeed channel is disabled
  • Airspeed Control – with the Altitude channel output ports uncapped, the Altitude Channel monitors local ambient pressure when Vc, Qc, or M is utilized as the reference for computation of Pt
  • Then the Airspeed channel is controlled in terms of Pt, local ambient is utilized to prevent negative Qc conditions.
  • Dual Monitor – both channels display the pressure at their respective ports.
  • Reset – both channels are vented to ambient pressure. Should a failure occur the unit automatically reverts to this mode and vents the unit under test at a controlled rate.

PPCM Pneumatic Upgrade Kit

The Pneumatic Modification kit for the PPCM can help with system leaks and eliminate future problems. The kit completely replaces all of the PPCM internal hoses with new color-coded tubing. The color coding is as follows; Red: Static, Blue: Pitot, Green: Vacuum, Yellow: Pressure. The kit can be installed in about an hour and eliminates many of the frustrations of having to track down leaks in the system. For technicians who are not comfortable performing the upgrade on their own, the unit can be sent to Raptor for upgrade.

PPCM Power Supply Replacement

The offers the PPCM Power Supply Replacement (TVCS-PSA-100) as a form fit and functional replacement for obsolete and non-functioning PPCM power supplies. These supplies are no longer available from the OEM, this leaves many PPCM users in a jam when it fails. TRaptor Scientific replacement power supply solves this problem with a direct replacement. Just remove the dead or blown power supply and install the replacement – the install can be performed in about an hour. The terminal strip on the replacement unit is numbered identically to the old power supply; just mate up the numbers on the terminal strip, screw them in, and you are ready to go.
