AeroWorx announced today that it has completed the installation of the latest generation AVRplus K838AX Generator Test Stand from Avtron Aerospace. This new stand is ideal for repair, overhaul and return-to-service testing of all types of aircraft AC and DC generators. The system supports a wide variety of equipment including main, auxiliary and APU generators, IDG’s, CSD’s, VFSG’s, VFG’s, DC starters, etc for both commercial and military aircraft. The stand accepts units from all Boeing airliners from B-707 through B-787, Airbus aircraft from A-300 through A-380 and military aircraft F-15, F-16, F-18, B-52, B-1B, C-17, C-130 and many more. The system can also accommodate units for most business jets and helicopters such as the UH-60, AH-64 and the CH-47.
The AVRplus is a universal high tech test stand replacing flight-worthy GCU’s for testing generators and other equipment. This flexible and adaptable test system can replace 100 different GCU’s to help simplify and reduce the cost and complexity of testing. A single software tool is used to download GCU emulation “personalities”, update firmware, and perform calibration and maintenance all through a serial port further streamlining testing procedures.
