Canada-based CCX Technologies has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with UK-based Evolution Measurement to sell, calibrate and perform limited repairs to the testers for business jet and commercial aircraft platforms following certification of the equipment with European regulations. Having been found compliant with all harmonised and performance safety standards, the CE Mark can be displayed on the T-RX tester and it is authorised for sale in the European market.
“We are incredibly well-aligned in our dedication to providing innovative solutions to the aviation market,” says president Chris Bartlett. “This is one of many reasons why we are thrilled to add Evolution Measurement to our expanding authorised channel-partner network. This agreement lines up with our goal to make the product as widely available as possible. It will give more maintainers across Europe access to modern avionics testers not previously available, allowing them to incorporate our intuitive T-RX to streamline testing. The addition of a licensed calibration capability in Europe is also an important new time-saving service for maintainers.”
The T-RX lets maintenance professionals evaluate most avionics radio systems with more than 100 different tests. Easy to use, rugged and portable, it replaces the functionality of outdated avionics testers with a single compact unit. Even as new standards and test requirements emerge, upgrading the T-RX's capabilities is as easy as mobile phone or tablet software upgrade, over-the-air, through the CCX website. The T-RX allows maintainers to print and include test reports into their customer work orders, providing confidence that testing is done correctly for added efficiency.
“As experts at helping solve the most difficult measurement problems, we are always on the lookout for innovative, new products that will deliver added value to our customers,” says Paul Crowhurst, managing director at Evolution Measurement. “After seeing the T-RX in action, it is clear to us that it provides an elegant and efficient solution to a recurring avionics challenge. Not only are we delighted to add it to our growing catalogue of aerospace focused measurement products, we are pleased to be exclusive distributors for the T-RX in Europe.”
The T-RX avionics radio tester is a wireless, touch-screen tablet that is portable and easy to use with an intuitive interface. Some examples of tests the T-RX performs are: VOR, Localizer, Glideslope, ILS, Marker, VHF Com generate and receive (includes ELT 121.5 receive), HF Com generate and receive, 32 Tone SELCAL HF/VHF, ELT 406, DME, TCAS, Mode A/C/S Transponder (including European-specific Mode S ELS/EHS, plus 8.33KHz frequency spacing for VHF Com). Additionally, it evaluates ADS-B OUT 1090, ADS-B IN 1090, ADS-B OUT 978 (UAT), ARINC 429 RX.
