The MTS-3060 "SmartCan" – The Next Generation in Aircraft Armament Test

Prior to loading live weapons on an aircraft, maintainers are required to verify that no stray voltage is present and that the firing signals for aircraft armament are functioning properly. Current flight line test equipment has relied upon small, battery-operated testers called an Armament Circuits Pre-Load Test Set (ACPTS), commonly referred to as a "beercan" due to its shape and size. Geotest-Marvin Test System’s MTS-3060 SmartCan represents the next generation of flight-line test equipment by incorporating over 30 measurement channels (compared to one or two for a legacy beercan) as well as MIL-STD-1760 support for Smart weapons. Read on to learn about the advanced features and capabilities of the MTS-3060 and how it can address both current and future armament test needs.  PXI Digital Multimeter (DMM)
