The majority of aircraft rely on on-board Airborne Data Loaders (ADL) featuring a floppy disk drive. However, the use of floppy disks has many short comings:


– Limited data capacity
– Need to change media during data load
– Frequently media drop-outs
– Floppy disks needs to be prepared manually
– Low data security as data on floppy disks can be modified without notice
– Floppy disks are becoming obsolete


Since floppy disks are becoming obsolete, many airlines need to replace their Airborne Data Loaders with equipment offering a long, reliable life span.


The use of Portable Data Loaders (PDL) to replace current Airborne Data Loaders offers many benefits to the maintenance providers as well as to the airlines.
 

These advantages include:


– Enhanced data security
– Possibility for media-free data loading
– Unattended data loading (no need to change media)
– Support for many media options
– No LRU replacement needed in the event that new data load media has to be supported
– No costs/ground-time because of jammed ADL


Due to these benefits many airlines have chosen to use PDL in place of ADL for data loading. Airbus also recommends the use of Portable Data Loaders instead of Airborne Data Loaders.


The mbs’ PDL-Adapter Plate provides a quick and easy conversion of an ADL dependent aircraft into one which can be loaded with a PDL. The form factor of the mbs’ PDL-Adapter Plate conforms precisely with that of a Honeywell / Teledyne / Sagem ADL.
