C-Band Transponder Test Sets

The Micro Systems, Inc. C-Band Test Set Series provide calibration tests for most C-Band Transponders used in flight testing. The test set functions to verify proper transponder operation by simulating pulse interrogations and qualifying responses per specified parameters.

With a touch screen LCD display, test setup is quick and easy and results are clear. Units are available in 115 and 220 VAC versions. Peak front panel direct power is greater than 1 Watt with -74dBm radiated power.
Micro Systems, Inc. is currently designing a Test Set Model that will test 20Watt through 400 Watt from the same unit.

Model 38-4 C-Band Mini-Tester

The Micro Systems, Inc. C-Band Mini-Tester (Model 38) is a handheld battery powered unit that provides Go/No-Go testing for the Model 251, 252, and 253 Series C-Band transponders. The Mini-Tester verifies proper transponder operation by interrogating a transponder installed and powered in a systems platform. Indicator LED’s verify the transmission of signals and the received reply. In addition to testing Micro Systems’ products, the Model 38 can also be used to test any C-Band transponder in the 5.4-5.9 GHz rangeThe Mini-Tester is programmable and uses the same programming interface kit that is used to program the transponders themselves. This feature allows for quick frequency changes without having to open the unit. The Model 38 Mini-Tester is capable of testing units more than 350 feet away.
