The TS-4530A, which has been upgraded and manufactured by Tel-Instrument, is the latest version of the popular AN/APM-424 and TS-4530. Test set provides easy-to-use Go/No-Go operation. The TS-4530A, developed under a U.S. Army contract, now tests IFF Mode 5, EHS, and TCAS.

The TS-4530A includes a large 8-line, colour display and a new 3-button switch assembly that adds a 4-way directional toggle action for improved usability. The upper housing includes a built-in KIV-77 CCI appliqué enclosure.
