Toolinux : ECA Group’s diagnostic tablet for aeronautics
Published on Toolinux, May 2017
The MRO Americas, a major aeronautical maintenance show, was held in Orlando in late April. It was on this occasion that the ECA Group unveiled its new maintenance tool, the TP10-A429 tablet.
It allows the diagnosis and maintenance of airplanes. Designed for operators, aircraft manufacturers and equipment manufacturers, it is compatible with the ARINC 429 standard. The use of this standard makes it possible to detect the origin of a problem much faster without having to disassemble the system. Moreover, in front of its competitors, this tablet has a much more suitable design with its 10-inch touchscreen and its user interface simplified.
The TP10-A429 works with a Linux environment, enabling ECA Group to be fully autonomous with its product and to better respond to the obsolescence of components.
