delay time


Also found in: Acronyms.

delay time

[di′lā ‚tīm]
(control systems)
The amount of time by which the arrival of a signal is retarded after transmission through physical equipment or systems.
(electronics)
The time taken for collector current to start flowing in a transistor that is being turned on from the cutoff condition.
(industrial engineering)
A span of time during which a worker is idle because of factors beyond personal control.

delay time

The amount of time an arriving aircraft must lose to cross the meter-fix at the assigned meter-fix time. This is the difference between ACLT (actual calculated landing time) and VTA (vectored time of arrival). See also actual calculated landing time and vectored time of arrival.
