The ozonizer/test unit is designed for conditioning ECC Ozonesondes with ozone and for checking the performance of the sondes prior to flight.
This durable, easy-to-use unit includes the following components:
- A HI OZONE source for conditioning the sondes and dry sensor with ozone
- A NO-LO OZONE source and microammeter (0-10 µA) for conditioning ozone sensors charged with sensing solution, and for checking on the sensor background current and response time
- A 12 VDC sonde pump power supply and meters for checking the pump motor voltage and current drain
- An 18 VDC power source for powering the radiosonde when checking on the performance of the entire ozonesonde instrument package
