Dynon Adds Hardware Modules to SkyView EFIS

Dynon's SV-D700 7-inch EFIS.

Dynon Avionics is introducing three new hardware modules, two Mode-S transponders and an ARINC-429 interface, for the SkyView glass panel system. The new SV-XPNDR-261 and SV-XPNDR-262 transponders add traffic information, and they fully integrate into the SkyView system with no additional panel space required. At less than a pound, these small and power-efficient hardware modules can be mounted anywhere in the aircraft.

The new transponders meet the U.S. and European ADS-B OUT mandates. They also allow U.S. 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 feet and speeds of more than 175 knots. The price is $2200. The SV-XPNDR-262 is a Class 2 Mode-S transponder for flights below 15,000 feet and less than 175 knots, and is $1800.

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. The price is $475.

Dynon will also be highlighting the introduction of its integrated autopilot for the SkyView system, with a price of $750 per servo.

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