Abstract:

A flight line analyzer, part of the Special Test Equipment Kit for the ANASW-12V AFCS, was developed. It was designed as a GO-NO GO testing device to be used at the organizational maintenance level. The test flight line analyzer was designed to provide a means of testing the ANASW-12V AFCS in an airplane. It isolates faulty components causing system malfunction. The test sequence singles out the key AFCS components and functions and subjects them to complete evaluation. The remaining units are then evaluated and isolated by means of functional tests on a series of components. In some cases the faulty component is not subjected to any direct functional tests but is isolated by means of determining the acceptability of all other components. Cables are provided from the airplanes test point to the cockpit of the aircraft, which enables one person to operate both the flight line analyzer and the ANASW-12V . Electrical power for operation of the flight line analyzer is obtained from the airplanes electrical systems. No unsatisfactory operations were encountered during the evaluation. Malfunctions were injected into components of the AN ASW-12V and in all cases, the malfunctions were detected by the flight line analyzer.
