The DMA-Aero MPS35 is a fully RVSM compliant test set capable of controlling three pressures separately and independently: static, pitot, and angle of attack. The MPS35 is ideal for flightline use for aircraft that incorporate pneumatic AOA measurement. The angle of attack pressure can be displayed either in pressure units or directly in degrees of AOA with 0.1 degree resolution. The MPS35 is configured to control up to eight lines isolation, two for static, two for AOA. When AOA is not required MPS35 can control the switching of four static lines plus four pitot lines in any combination. It has a recommended calibration cycle of one year.
