MTI Instruments’ WiFi-Enabled 1520 Portable Signal Simulator/Calibrator Brings Enhanced Functionality, Laboratory-Grade Accuracy Directly to Flightline and Test-Cell

MTI Instruments introduces the 1520 Signal Simulator and Calibrator offering
market-leading WiFi connectivity, ergonomic and visualization features, and
up to 10 hours of battery life. Designed to support MTI Instruments’ proven
jet engine vibration measurement and balancing systems, the portable signal
simulator brings laboratory-grade accuracy directly onto the flight line and to
the test cell. The unit features a rugged, two-handed controller for glove-
friendly operation and a color touchscreen for viewing high-precision
graphical waveforms. Unlike other simulators/calibrators, the 1520 needs
just one technician to set up signal simulations at a location and then, via
wireless login, conduct the test while observing and adjusting values.

The 1520 adds functionality and versatility to MTI Instruments’ existing, well-respected handheld 1510A Signal Simulator. The key features of the new 1520 Signal Simulator and Calibrator include:

• WiFi Capability – Wireless login and control of full functionality enables fast and easy testing of hard-to-
• reach sensors and devices at the flight line and test-cell
• Portable, Rugged – Ergonomic design includes glove-friendly buttons as well as a color touchscreen
• High-Precision Waveforms – Custom, sine, square, triangle, pulse, tachometer, and sawtooth waveforms
• from 0.1Hz to 100kHz n 0.1 Hz increments
• Long Battery Life – Operates up to 10 hours on a single charge
• Bridge Circuit Simulation – Easy to command microvolts to simulate strain gauges
• Standards Compliant – Comes with NIST-traceable calibration certificate
• Cost-Effective – Delivers high-precision laboratory-grade functionality at a competitive price

“Our new 1520 has upgraded features that jet maintenance technicians have been waiting for in a portable signal simulator and calibrator: Wireless capability and ergonomic design that can be used with gloves, excellent waveform visualization – and up to 10 hours of battery life,” said Moshe Binyamin, President, and CEO of MTI Instruments. “Thanks to the unit’s WiFi feature, many routine flightline sensor test procedures can be performed by a single technician. MTI Instruments makes it easy for technicians to bring laboratory-grade test equipment
onto the flightline and into the field where maintenance and testing are taking place.”
