SART Tester

Product Overview

Description

The SART Tester is designed to provide accurate, independent validation of the operation of any Radar-SART and check its performance under IMO Resolution A.802(19).

The International Marine Organization states that all GMDSS equipment (including SARTs) should be periodically maintained and verified to meet all the performance requirements. In case of test failure, ships may be detained in a port under SOLAS regulation IV/15.8.

The 9GHz Search and rescue radar transponder (radar-SART) is indispensable safety device and it must be checked regularly or annually during radio inspection.

The purpose of an annual testing is to determine that SART is operational as defined in appropriate performance standards for Survival Craft Radar Transponders for use in Search and Rescue Operations, IMO Resolution A.802 (19).

The SART Tester is the professional equipment for SART suppliers, ship surveyors, radio inspectors, classification societies and administrative authorities.

This SART Tester allows ensuring the SART meets the appropriate performance requirements. The SART Tester is portable and easy in use. It is far more effective and reliable than the primitive self-test function offered by any SART. The test results shown on LCD display or printed make easy the further analysis of the SART efficiency.

NATO Serial Number: 6625-12-379-2933.

Specification / Features

SART Tester supports simple procedure of radar-SART checking.

One needs to turn on the tester and then to turn on the radar-SART. After making sure that there is at least 1,5 meters distance between the Tester and the SART, go on with simple actions to carry out the test procedure.

The SART Tester will receive the radar-SART signal, measure the frequency carrier, signal duration, frequency sweep number and will estimate the power level of emitted signal.
The time of one measurement cycle does not exceed 2 minutes.

All data will be saved in memory for further processing. The measured data can be viewed by means of built-in LCD or can be transferred to any PC or laptop.

The tester is lightweight, hand-held and user-friendly in usage, has keyboard and LCD with backlight.

Built-in rechargeable power supply unit performs the tester power supply.

Features:

  • Any radar-SART of any manufacturer can be tested
  • Reception the signal within the range of 9140…9560Mhz frequencies
  • Easy and quick audio-control of the sweep signal presence
  • Internal database of received messages
  • Easy connection to PC, laptop to process the stored data
  • Windows user friendly desktop application for database storage and review, process and test reports printout
