New device works with the T-RX Avionics Tester and provides superior signal isolation
for effective GPS radio testing
New Orleans, LA – 28 March 2022 – CCX Technologies is introducing its new GPS Antenna Coupler at the AEA National Convention and Trade Show today during the New Product Introduction Session. The new device, which is used with the T-RX Avionics Tester to validate the functionality of aircraft GPS radios, provides more than 20 dB of antenna isolation to ensure there is no interference from outside GPS signals during testing.
“Testing aircraft GPS radios can be finicky because GPS satellite signals must be excluded during the tests, and you don’t want to interfere with another aircraft’s GPS while testing the aircraft,” said Chris Bartlett, president of CCX Technologies. “Our new GPS Antenna Coupler provides superior signal isolation so that testing can occur inside or outside the hangar without worrying about interference from satellites or interfering with the GPS radios of other nearby aircraft. Today, we are extremely pleased to unveil this new product at the AEA Convention. It is the ideal place to launch new avionics equipment.
The GPS Antenna Coupler is easy-to-use and part of CCX’s complete testing kit, including the T-RX GPS Signal Generator and the T-RX tester. It is rugged for ramp use and supports GPS antennas up to six inches in diameter. The system simulates six satellites, including WAAS/EGNOS and offers dynamic GPS location using latitude and longitude, altitude track and vert rate. The coupler is compatible with other systems, comes with a 9.8 ft long Coax Cable and can automatically download the current GPS Almanac to stay up-to-date.
