Penny And GILES D51600 operating manual

Hello. Where I can find Penny And GILES D51600 operating and calibration manual?

EDLB, Germany

I have one, give me a few days and I provide you a scanned pdf of it.


I wrote to the manufacturer and they sent me an electronic copy free of charge. Here it is.

Thank you. Does anyone have good/bad experience on this unit?

Hi. I’m looking for one more item regarding this.
I haven’t previous calibration certificate of annual calibration and labolatory is asking about any template.
Can anyone share it ? Or maybe you know good lab’s in Germany or EU can do this..

You do realise this unit is only approved for leak-testing and not for performing pitot-static system calibration checks such as FAR 91.411?

Where its coming from (easa rules) ?

I can’t see limit in manual:

The PSLT (Figure 2) is a robust, battery-powered, portable instrument with state-of-the-art microprocessor control, offering the following features:
A. Leak testing of aircraft pitot and static systems.
B. Functional checking of aircraft airspeed and altitude switches.

As far as I know this unit is used by some small companies in Germany for annual transponder/pitot/static testing.
This unit provide more features/accurancy then analog Barfield tester with old steam gauges.

If you look at table 1 here:, you see that you need to read aircraft altitude to a much tighter limit than the 50 foot display resolution the test set can generate. It’s name gives it away – PSLT – pitot-static leak tester.

Two different things being discussed. Where was FAA mentioned? Not really applicable anyway since the paperwork has to come from an FAA 145 company.
