The Avtron Aerospace AX Series Test System offers our customers the most versatile generator test system in the industry. This next generation stand replaces the very successful K838AT & K938 platforms, retaining compatibility with previously sold adapters. These systems are primarily used for production, and return-to-service testing of a broad range of aircraft units, including:
- Main, Auxiliary, and APU Generators
- Wild Frequency Generators and Starter/Generators
- DC starter/Generators
Avtron’s AX Test Systems are the cornerstone products for universal generator testing. While supporting a wide range of components, these systems improve the bottom line for our customers by decreasing test times and enhancing quality control. The AX Series is ideal for supporting regional jet, narrow body, and wide body aircraft, such as CRJ, ERJ, C-Series, 737, A320, 777, 787, A350 and A380.
AX systems include options for automatic, semi-automatic, and manual modes of operation. Standard system ratings of 150-1500 HP provide flexibility for MRO shops testing small AC and DC generators and starter/generators to shops supporting the latest commercial aircraft. These systems have been designed as a universal test platform and will support a wide range of aircraft generator components. Adapter kits and software supporting individual components are available to increase the support capability of the system. Please consult with an Avtron Aerospace sales representative to ensure appropriate configuration of system options are provided to meet the needs of your business.
The AX Series Test Stands use AC motor/drive technology for improved system performance and lower long-term maintenance cost. With AC motors, there is no need for expensive brush and commutator maintenance you normally have with DC motors. AC motors offer higher operating speeds, which can either eliminate the need for a speed increasing gearbox or reduce the gear ratio of the speed increasing gearbox. Reduced gearbox ratios improve system performance by providing higher output torques and improved speed control. Avtron only uses AC motors and drives from industry-leading manufacturers, so long term support is guaranteed.
