DATA

 

 

The ECAT Lightning Test System is designed to provide a modular test platform based on the lightning simulator requirements of RTCA DO-160 Section 22.

The system is expandable to meet Boeing, Airbus and other requirements, and because of its modular configuration can be easily upgraded as requirements change.

The basic system configuration provides test capabilities to Level 3 for Pin Injection, Cable Bundle single and multiple stroke testing, and is expandable to Level 5 for all waveforms including Waveforms 3H and 6H for multi burst testing.

When failure is not an option. With its fully-automated test operations, the Thermo Scientific ECAT Lightning Test System (LTS) yields reliable, repeatable and accurate test results to avionics lightning simulator requirements of RTCA DO 160E Section 22 E/F. It is easily expandable to meet Boeing, Airbus, EUROCAE and other requirements.
Building on the legacy of proven ECAT field-upgradeable modular technology, it features fast test set-up, intuitive programming, built-in voltage and current monitoring, and front panel and remote computer control. On-site calibration and field service is available worldwide.
