Dynon Adds Three New SkyView Hardware Modules

Oshkosh, WI – Dynon Avionics is introducing three new hardware modules - two Mode-S transponders and an ARINC-429 interface - for the industry leading SkyView glass panel system.

The new SV-XPNDR-261 and SV-XPNDR-262 transponders add traffic information, and are the lowest priced Mode-S transponders on the market. They fully integrate into the SkyView System, with no additional panel space required for a separate control panel. At less than 1 pound, these small and power efficient hardware modules can be mounted anywhere in the aircraft.

The new transponders meet the USA and European ADS-B OUT mandates. They also allow USA TIS traffic displayed on the SkyView map and synthetic vision displays.

The SV-XPNDR-261 is a Class 1 Mode-S transponder, meeting the requirements for flights above 15,000’ and greater than 175 knots. At $2,200 it is ideal for high performance experimental aircraft. The SV-XPNDR-262 is a Class 2 Mode-S transponder for flights below 15,000 feet and less than 175 knots, and at only $1,800 it is the ideal choice for Light Sport aircraft. Both these prices continue the Dynon tradition of delivering the highest quality products at the lowest prices.

The new SkyView SV-ARINC-429 module delivers on the promise to make SkyView compatible with certified GPS receivers, integrating with radios such as the Garmin 430/530. This includes advanced features that IFR pilots demand, such as GPS steering, CDI auto-scaling and vertical guidance information from WAAS-enabled GPS receivers. With the addition of this module, SkyView eliminates the need to install a conventional CDI/GS head for the Garmin 430/530. And at only $475, the SV-ARINC-429 adds this capability at a Dynon price.

These three new SkyView Modules will be available for delivery in the fall of 2010.
