Proven Condition Monitoring Solutions

RT-6 Information

The RT-6TM system is the latest offering from the world-famous Rotortuner range of products. It is a powerful new solution for “Dynamic Balancing – Computer based Tracking & Balancing System” as recommended by OEMs. The carry-on Rotor Track & Balance (RTB) and Vibration Analysis (VA) system has been purposely designed for airborne use, the equipment complies with EMC and Environmental elements of RTCA/DO-160.

RT-6 provides capability for RTB, shaft balancing, high speed shaft monitoring, and non-specific vibration monitoring and analysis. It has been designed with ease-of-use and cost effectiveness at its heart. Simultaneous and parallel data collection on 16 measurement channels and 8 speed reference channels (expandable), combined with the new RTB solution algorithm (MFR), reduce not only the flight time but also the number of flights required to complete the RTB & VA tasking.

The Flitepad® Hand-Held Terminal is a powerful, flight qualified, and ruggedised touch-screen tablet PC which can be operated with the gloved hand. Its large storage capacity means that all aircraft data, for multiple aircraft types and tail numbers, can be stored on the Flitepad.

Many of the components used with earlier RT-2000 and RT-5JS+ systems are compatible with and transferable to the RT-6 system, making an easy and cost effective upgrade option.

Product Benefits

• Reduced flight times due to multiple, simultaneous data collections
• Reduced number of flights due to Minimum Flight Routine (MFR) solutions algorithm
• Simple pre-programmable operator interface for minimal training requirement
