Important information for users of the GST 6108 purchased prior to 1st of December 2010
From 1st of December 2010 onwards, the Ultrasonic Leakage Meter GST 6108 (P/N 610007AB) can, in addition to its usage for the A320 family, also be employed, according to AMM Chapter 29, for the A330 and A340 family.
Hardware and Software/Firmware are certified and approved by Airbus per Certificate of Acceptance (No.: D29032, D29062).
According to the Operation Information Telex (OIT) SE 999.0074/10 dated 4th of August 2010, the Ground Support Tool P/N 610007AB is requested mandatory for all airplanes of the A330/A340 family post mod 58345 (from MSN 1049 onwards) as well as all A350 and A380 family models.
To conduct the AMM Task, the Ground Support Tool is required as Hardware (P/N 610007AB) in combination with the corresponding Firmware for the specific aircraft model (A320 family: P/N 61007010-01, A330/A340 family: P/N 61007030-01, A350 family: P/ 61007040-01, A380: P/N 61007050-00).
Therefore, for purchasing the Tool, one has to keep in mind the desired usage for the specific aircraft model. In cases were the Hardware shall be used for the A320 and A330/A340 aircraft families, both Firmware versions can be used simultaneously on the same device.
Thus, if you already own a GST 6108 (P/N 610007AB) with the Firmware for the A320 family (P/N 61007010-01), you can upgrade the Hardware with the Firmware for the A330/A340 family (P/N 61007030-01), the A350 family (P/N 61007040-01) and A380 (P/N 61007050-00).
For doing so, please contact us by email and send the Hardware to our companies headquarter in Berlin.

FLEXIM's GST 6108(M) ultrasonic leakage meter checks and monitors the functionality and internal leak rate of the green, yellow and blue hydraulic systems for the complete, LeftHand Wing, Right-Hand Wing and Tail sections of the below mentioned Airbus aircraft models.
This portable instrument is rapidly installed thanks to the non-invasive measurement with ultrasound. The transducer is simply clamped onto the hydraulics line and connected to the unit. After selection of the aircraft type and measuring point designation, the test results (pass/fail) are displayed.
The hydraulics leakage meter is used for:

- Clamp-on measurement with portable instrument
- no need to open the hydraulic system, no additional leakage source during maintenance
- The transducers can be installed on different parts of the hydraulic system
- Transfer of measuring data from the leakage meter to a PC possible for analysis and visualization of the data and management of data files
- User-friendly operation thanks to the clearly structured user interface
- Highly useful in troubleshooting applications; allows for mixed operation:
- hydraulic equipment check
- volume flow check
- accumulator check
- Test result (pass/fail) bases on the measuring point′s specific limit values saved in the internal data base of the instrument
