The M Precision Labs ECAT Lightning Test System (LTS) is a modular test platform which tests to the lightning simulator requirements of RTCA
DO-160, Section 22, and Section 17. The system is expandable to meet Boeing, Airbus, EUROCAE, and other avionic standards.
- Quick test set-up
- Simple user interface
- Waveforms: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5A, 5B and 6
- Levels 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5+
- Single stroke, multiple strokes, multiple burst and pin injection from the same front panel
- modular architecture
- voltage spikes
With the advent of the ECAT LTS, lightning testing of avionics comes of age with an easy to use, turn-key solution for test engineers and technicians. Until recently, the availability of commercial equipment for testing to lightning standards for avionics, such as RTCA DO-160G, has been limited. Most test equipment used in the industry was home-made: difficult and time-consuming to set-up and awkward to use, often unsafe, and requiring skilled engineers for their operation and maintenance.
Testing with the ECAT LTS ensures repeatable, reproducible test results while virtually eliminating tester set-up time. Waveforms and functions are selected with the push of a button rather than by reconfiguring test equipment and moving around bulky generator boxes and wiring. The ECAT LTS can significantly reduce total test time resulting in significant cost savings.
