independently to
verify the Angle of

the flightline/ramp
Air Data Test Sets
are portable and
can also be used in
the laboratory with
ADTSWIN PC

models low power
consumption
generates
negligible heat and
allows the highest
accuracy available
today. Optionally,
the ADTS can be
remotely
controlled by a
Pocket PC with
Bluetooth
connection (no
cables required).
The human
interface ensures
all the functions
are easily
controlled with a
minimum of
keystrokes. <br

GEN-X is
designed for
simple cost
effective retrofit

requirements.
Installations can be
accomplished
under the
operator's choice
of either Class 2 or
Class 3
requirements.</p>
<p>"We designed
GEN-X from the
start as a Class 3
avionics grade
solution. It was
clear to us that our
customers were
demanding a level
of reliability,
functionality and
growth potential
that was only
achievable with
Class 3
equipment," said
Mike Crouch,
President of DAC
International. We
have several
customers that are
installing GEN-X
under the FAA
Class 2
requirements as
well. They too will
enjoy the benefits
of a full Class 3
device with the
added flexibility of
a removable
installation. This
offers our
customers the best
of both worlds,"
added Crouch.
</p><p>GEN-X
effectively bridges
the gap between
Class 2 and Class 3
EFB's to bring
professional
operators a cost-
effective retrofit
solution that
supports the users'
Windows based
applications along

EFB applications.
</p><p>GEN-X
features an almost

intuitive operation
minimizes or
eliminates training
