New, modern touchscreen tablet streamlines testing, saving time and money
CCX Technologies today launched its T-RX™ Radio and Pulse Tester product line, a trio of tablets for testing avionics radios. Officially being launched at the popular New Product Introduction Session at the 62nd Annual AEA International Convention & Trade Show, T-RX will be available at the end of June, 2019. To celebrate the launch, CCX Technologies is offering a special package discount for pre-purchase at AEA.
“We want to modernize avionics radio testing, reporting and purchasing,” said Chris Bartlett president of CCX Technologies. “Our T-RX tablets are built with the latest technologies and designed with the next generation of technicians in mind, those used to simple, powerful mobile interfaces. We believe that our innovative new radio test equipment will help make the job easier and more efficient. T-RX tablets feature a 10” sunlight-readable touch screen with an intuitive user interface and large easy to read text, so technicians can more readily pick-out the pertinent information from the screen, with the detailed data available in the background.”
Built to help streamline the testing process, the T-RX Avionics Radio and Pulse Tester product has three rugged variants: T-RX Radio Tester, T-RX Pulse Tester, and T-RX RP+ Tester. Each tablet tests a specific set of radios, and users can also add a number of optional radio test licenses to support other specific test requirements. Each tablet will test 16 different systems and conduct more than 100 different tests including: VOR, Instrument Landing System (ILS), VHF Comm, DME Test, ELT Reader, HF Comm Generation, Transponder Mode A/C, Transponder Mode S, ADS-B 1090, SELCAL Tone Generation, ARINC 429 Rx/Tx, TCAS, and ADS-B UAT (978). The T-RX is equipped with an internal antenna, and an optional external antenna will be available, along with an accessory kit that includes Lithium-ion Smart Battery, charger, a rugged carry case and shoulder strap.
“Additionally,” continued Bartlett, “The T-RX will collect the data generated during a transponder test, for example, and store it on a secure server. The data can then be identified by the aircraft tail number, work order and technician, and be incorporated as a report in the customer work order. Large maintenance organizations will appreciate the tablet’s Advance Data Collection feature which will allow them to retrieve the data with an API—also called application programming interface—that can be incorporated directly into their electronic work order systems. This feature automatically populates specified fields, saving time.”
