ACT’s Aviation Hypoxia Training System solves most of the practical problems previously associated with hypoxia awareness training.
- No massive forces, so no need for heavy steel enclosures.
- No need to equalize pressures to open the door.
- No need to replace expensive, highly-stressed glass
- No need for large vacuum compressors or high voltage power supply
Instead, lightweight aluminum-framed panels clip together to form a completely clear enclosure. The altitude-simulating air is created on-demand by lightweight, maintenance-free air-separation units. No high pressures are involved. There are no consumables. Finally, this is all managed using the world’s most advanced control system for altitude simulation.
The active barometric pressure reading is included in altitude calculations. As altitude is related to the partial pressure of oxygen, it is crucial to monitor both O2% AND pressure and combine these to calculate the effective simulated altitude.
