Cargolux have just become the first dedicated cargo airline to select the ExLRT from MK Test Systems as their loop resistance tool (LRT). 

Europe’s largest all-cargo airline, Cargolux operate a fleet of Boeing 747-8 and 747-400 freighters. Their MRO hangar in Luxembourg can now carry out specified loop resistance measurements in line with Boeing’s prescribed maintenance tests much more easily thanks to the ExLRT.

The ExLRT is a modern LRT tool, and is designed to check for faults in wiring loops on aircraft.  Miss-wires, short circuits and other faults can result in high resistance inadvertently blocking current flow should the aircraft be hit by lightning. 

Designed and developed in partnership with The Boeing Company for use in MRO environments, the ExLRT is light enough to be carried and handled by a single operator.  Crucially, the tool can be used in areas where fuel is present – a vital safety aspect in maintenance hangars.
