ADSE 550


The ADSE 550 pitot-static tester, housed in a plastic carrying case, is a portable, self-contained field tester designed to test aircraft pitot and static systems for leaks as well as the operation and calibration of airspeed, altimeter, engine pressure ratio, manifold pressure indicators, and other vacuum or low-pressure units.

The tester consists of a hand-operated vacuum pump, a hand-operated pressure pump vacuum and pressure gauges, 5 control valves, an altimeter and an airspeed indicator. The package accessories include two 25-foot hoses.


Our Pitot-static testers are mainly used with a wired color touchpad, except the ADSE 650 which works in WIFI, thus giving greater freedom to the operator. The HMI has been designed to be as simple and efficient as possible, which is confirmed by users.

Different functions such as flight areas, slope monitoring, balancing, etc. enable flight instrument tests to be carried out safely without accidentally damaging them. It is possible to work in manual or automatic mode by programming test sequences (ideal for testing altimeters in the workshop).

Leak Test
The leak test is a function that measures the leakage rate of the circuits Ps, Pt for and is intended to calculate the leak rate per minute. The test time is set to 1 minute by default, but can be adjusted.

Tester Packaging
Our pitot-static testers are available for the laboratory in 19″ rack version (with or without integrated pumps) or in a rolling suitcase for the hangar and tarmac. We also strive to reduce the size and weight of our testers so that they are easier to transport and use (ex ADSE 650).

For large airplanes with several airspeed circuits, our ADSEs can be equipped with up to 4 Ps, Pt and AoA channels. The operator can then select and isolate the various circuits without leaving the cockpit.

Some devices have a default battery (ADSE 650), and can be added as an option to others.

It is possible to add other options on our Pitot-static testers, such as the AoA (angle of attack), as well as low-speed sensors for helicopters, gliders and drones, high-speed sensors for fighter planes, control alti-coders, etc …
