production acceptance testing (PAT)

Reduce testing time to a fraction by highly automated test equipment
Situation

OEMs demand fully tested cabin monuments from their suppliers. However, manual testing is time-consuming and requires highly qualified engineers. Electrical tests require multiple test tools, and functional tests are often not possible due to missing real aircraft components. Furthermore, testing according to new specs, such as ARINC 812, is complex because bus signals have to be manipulated in sync with measurements. All of these issues are solved with our fully automated test tools.

Who needs it?
  • Manufacturers of any aircraft components, such as cabin monuments, cabin equipment, galleys, or lavatories
  • Manufacturers of complex aircraft components, such as LRUs, controllers, or devices
  • Aircraft manufacturers during final assembly
 Benefits
  • Ultra-fast testing – reduce testing time from hours to minutes
  • Fully automated testing
  • Test report generation to OEM specification
  • Complete tests, both electrical and functional, to maintain the chain of custody
  • Easy to use, easy to learn, no high-level personnel required
