Muirhead Avionics has secured exclusive distribution rights for a Tel Instruments avionics flight test set in Europe.
An independent avionics repair facility, Muirhead is an AMETEK MRO brand.
The Tel Instruments (TIC) ‘SDR-OMNI Flight Line Test Set’ provides the avionics technician with a comprehensive suite of radio frequency (RF) avionics test capability in a single “rugged, yet lightweight” package for commercial and military customers. Formatted reports can be downloaded via USB or wirelessly printed to a local wireless printer.
According to TIC, the combination of hardware and software can test virtually any RF signal from 200 kHz to 2.0 GHz. Test functions are implemented using software-defined signal processes that generate, receive and measure complex avionics signals covering narrow band analog or digital communications, intricate navigation, and wide-band pulse or data protocols.
“This device will be a game changer for avionics testing,” said Muirhead Avionics’ managing director and divisional vice president Steve Wells. “At Muirhead, we endeavour to deliver the latest technologies to our customers, and this test set fits into our portfolio perfectly, offering unmatched capability and ease of use.
“This is the first RF test set that is completely software defined – technicians simply need to specify the avionics test app, or combination of apps they would like to use. It is also the lightest test set in the market at only 4.2 pounds. Additionally, its large 7-inch colour display with responsive touchscreen means the SDR-OMNI is designed with the specialised demands of commercial and military customers in mind.”
