Test Equipment from Avionics Specialist

Supplier: Richardson Electronics

Richardson carries a wide selection of test equipment From Avionics Specialist Inc (ASI)


The ASI-502 “control wizard” emulates most major avionics control functions for testing requirements. The control wizard is capable of controlling ADF, HF/VHF COM, DME, NAV, Transponder, or any other system that requires ARINC 429 serial, CSDB serial, or Parallel

tuning methods including BCD and 2x5 ( 8.33 / 25 kHz). The “control wizard” eliminates the need for having multiple control heads in the shop because it comes pre-programmed with software containing up to 40 different programs that simulate different control head functions. Each ASI-502 is also equipped with a RS- 232 / program input connector that allows the customer to add additional programs to their  ASI-502 by downloading them from a computer.

The ASI Test System is a computer aided, modular system capable of testing a large variety of avionics equipment. Equipment tested includes the Collins Pro Line 1,2 and 4 series, King Gold Crown series, and ARINC standard avionics units. The heart of the ASI

Test Systems is the ASI-2000 mainframe, which provides power, test points and computer interface capabilities. The ASI-2000 interfaces with the PC through the use of an ASI-401-1 interface panel and a CTC-429 PC compatible card. The ASI-200-X series of plug-in

adapters provide interface from the ASI-2000 to the various types of UUT (unit under test) such as the Collins VIR-30/31/32/33/432/433 series of navigation receivers. This modularity is ideal for shops that do not dedicate one technician to one type of unit under test. Shops that do operate under more dedicated conditions should inquire about “stand alone” equipment that specifically test a particular unit.

Whether your shop is looking to establish testing capabilities

or expand upon current capabilities, let Richardson Electronics be your source for test equipment.
