TIC TR-220 Data Sheet

TIC TR-220 Data Sheet
The TR-220 provides test capability for
Traffic and Collision Avoidance Systems
(TCAS), Distance Measuring Equipment
(DME) and Transponders (Modes A, C,
and S). The TR-220 features state-of-the
art design technology.
Microprocessor
control results in easy-to-use operation
that requires minimum amounts of training.
Setup menu allows storage of various test
parameters to facilitate quick recall of test
conditions.

Test set automatically determines capability of transponder being tested (ATCRBS or Mode S)
and selects appropriate tests
Testing can be done over-the-air using directional antenna or directly connected to transponder
Test set can be selected for automatic sequencing or manual selection of individual
transponder tests

The TR-220 allows testing of TCAS I, TCAS II and Traffic Advisory Systems. The TR-220 allows the test set
operator to simulate ATCRBS and Mode S intruders.
The Setup menu allows the operator to configure and store up to 10 TCAS scenarios, including intruder
parameters for:
•
Distance (1 to 50 NMI)
•
Altitude (-1,000 to +99,900 ft.)
•
Vertical speed (-7,500 to +7,500 fpm)
•
Velocity (120 to 1200 kts)
The ICAO address for the Mode S intruder can be selected in the Setup screen. The TR-220 allows the
operator to measure TCAS power and frequency.
