Throttle-T-21-crop-2 A tec’s Model 5400 Series Electronic Engine Throttle System replaces antiquated mechanical and electrical throttles used in the testing of a variety of engine types. It enables fast changeover between engine types in the same hush house or test facility. Designed, used, and improved for over 10 years in both commercial and military engine test markets, the Electronic Engine Throttle System is compatible with both FADEC and mechanical PLA engines. It is available in a single throttle control version to support thrust engine variants, and a multiple control version to support the turboshaft/turboprop engine market. lined-up

As an additional benefit to military customers, the model 5400 is a direct approved fit into the USAF’s A/M37T-20 cab used in Mobile Engine Test Systems, as well as all T4 test cell noise suppressors.  The Atec Companies also offer legacy and upgrade throttles and control systems for many US Navy and Allies engines.
