ADTS 505
Druck Air Data Test Set
GE is the foremost supplier of Air Data Test Sets
and Systems, with over 25 years of experience in
the design and manufacture of advanced pressure
measuring instruments and sensors.
The ADTS 505 is the latest in a series of reliable,
compact and high accuracy Air Data Test Sets.
This flightline design has evolved as a result of
GE’s continuous research and development,
customer feedback and experience gained from
manufacturing thousands of automatic pressure
controllers. This has enabled performance, ease
of maintenance, and operational simplicity to be
• High accuracy—RVSM compliant
• Fully automatic control
• Rugged flightline construction
• Wide-ranging aircraft compatibility
• Integral pneumatic supplies
• Protection for aircraft instruments
• Standard remote hand terminal
High Accuracy
Fully Automatic Control
Compliant with RVSM (Reduced Vertical Separation
Minima) requirements, the ADTS 505 is a precision
twin-channel Ps and Pt pressure control test set for
the accurate calibration/verification of civil aircraft
pitot statics.
The ADTS 505 has fully automatic control by means
of the menu-driven high contrast,
electroluminescent display and tactile membrane
keypad. The desired altitude, airspeed or rate of climb
can be input, and the ADTS 505 will automatically
generate and continuously maintain the desired
It utilizes advanced micro-machined, piezoresistive and resonant silicon sensors, developed
by GE specifically for high accuracy measurement
applications. This technology provides excellent
thermal and long term stability.
Suitable for use with a wide range of fixed or rotary
wing civil aircraft, the ADTS 505 enables vital flight
instrumentation such as Altimeters, Airspeed
Indicators, Rate of Climb Indicators, Mach Meters
and Air Data Computers to be quickly and accurately
tested on the flightline.
User Friendly
The sophisticated, yet user-friendly display is fully
programmable for a range of test requirements. It
can be configured, with limits and preferred units of
measurement, for individual aircraft types. The level
of information displayed can be determined by the
operator to suit the particular task at hand.
Advanced Functions
In addition to the standard pitot-static functions of
the ADTS 505, there are many additional advanced
features which include automatic go-to-ground,
leak test mode and device under test protection
limits amongst others. This enables the operator to
undertake flightline testing accurately and efficiently,
without compromising safety standards.
Cost Effective
Highly portable, quick and easy to use, the ADTS
505 is also designed for low maintenance, with
a recommended 12 month recalibration interval.
Operational productivity is optimized and aircraft
downtime is minimized.
A choice of units is provided for Altitude, Airspeed,
Rate of Climb, Engine Pressure Ratio and other
related test functions. Control and measurement is
available for these parameters as well as Static, Pitot
and Calibrated Airspeed.
Testing With Confidence
Protection for the aircraft instruments under test
includes a power failure protection feature, which,
in the event of an interruption to the electrical
supply, locks the pneumatic system and allows safe
restoration to ambient ground conditions.
The ADTS 505 will operate with leaking systems,
which in practice can often occur. The required
aim value is maintained, enabling the test to be
Easy Flightline Operation
The self-contained ADTS 505 simplifies accurate
and RVSM compliant pitot-static testing for a wide
range of civil aircraft. Featuring a highly compact
and lightweight yet rugged construction, it enables
single-handed portability for convenient use on the
Integral Pneumatic Supplies
Matched pressure and vacuum pumps are included
within the ABS case, which also provides storage for
the pneumatic test hoses supplied with AN4 aircraft
connections. The ADTS 505 is conveniently powered
from any aircraft or national single phase supply,
with no user switching required.
Weighing just 15 kg (33 lb), the compact ADTS 505
offers a convenient yet high performance solution
for responding quickly to pitot static and pressure
related Air Data Test requirements on the flightline.
The ADTS 505 is housed in a rugged weatherproof
case, complete with internal pneumatic pumps for
pressure and vacuum generation. Automatic control
is implemented by simple menu instruction and
keypress at the front panel.
