Mode S/A/C Transponder Ramp Test Set
The ATC-601 performs Mode S/A/C
transponder tests required by Federal
Aviation Regulations
• Accurate measurement of transponder
transmitting frequency, power and
receiver sensitivity
• AUTO TEST minimizes test time
• Tests include Flight ID, Tail Number
decode and UELM/DELM data link
• Non-volatile storage for two sets of test
data
Tests may be individually run for diagnostic fault finding purposes during
routine maintenance.
The ATC-601 is environmentally packaged to operate in all weather
conditions and be protected against the shock and vibration encountered
during ramp use.
OPERATION
Setup Menu
The setup menus are used to program parameters for power and sensitivity
measurements, RS-232 parameters, test data storage, recall and data dump.
• Operating range of 0 to 300 feet from
the aircraft under test
• Dump test data to printer via RS-232
• Built-in self test
• LCD display with automatic backlight
• Tripod mountable directional antenna
• 2 hour battery operation
• FCC Type Acceptance approved
• Two-year limited warranty
IFR is a leader in the design, manufacture and
marketing of Avionics test systems.
The ATC-601 performs the ATC transponder test
required by the revised Federal Aviation
Regulations (91.172 and Part 43, Appendix F as
amended August 18, 1990) for Mode S, A and C
transponders.
The ATC-601 provides a comprehensive ‘AUTO
TEST’ function which allows the operator to verify
and certify the operation of Mode S/A/C transponders with little or no intervention once the test has
been commanded.
Auto Test
The AUTO TEST screen is selected with the ‘AUTO TEST’ key. When
initiated with the ‘RUN/STOP’ key, this test runs through 23 discrete tests in
approximately 30 seconds.
If the required operating modes pass, this completes the ‘Part 43, Appendix F’
requirements. The detailed results of individual tests conducted during
AUTO TEST are stored in memory and may be reviewed by using the
‘SELECT’ keys. Once selected, the test may be initiated by the ‘RUN/STOP’
key and will continue to run until the ‘RUN/STOP’ key is pressed again.
