Precision and accuracy [AAD16D1]

14 September 2016

Pretoria-based Measuretest supplies professional test and measurement equipment to the avionic, RF, microwave, electrical and telecommunications sectors.

The business was formerly within Marconi SA (Pty) Ltd but has evolved to its present form following a series of takeovers and buy-outs of overseas principals. Measuretest today represents a number of principals already well established in the global market, including Cobham Avcom, Stanford Research, Hioki, Flann Microwave, DMA Marchiori and Schomandl.

DMA Marchiori’s export manager, Giancarlo Polinori, will be at the Measuretest Stand E8 in Hangar 5 to answer questions about the company’s aircraft ground test equipment, which is used in more than 80 countries worldwide. All the design, development and manufacture of the air data test sets and ground support equipment is carried out at its large purpose-built facility in Aprilia, south of Rome. “The precision and accuracy of our air data test sets and precision barometric indicators are supported by a first-class calibration laboratory, enabling stringent accuracy requirements to be achieved,” Polinori said.
