AvMap will preview its new Ultra EFIS, a stand alone Air Data, Attitude, Heading and Altitude Reference (ADAHRS) unit at EAA’s AirVenture later this month. The AvMap Ultra EFIS is a stand alone device with a 3.5” ultra bright, Sunlight Readable LCD display. The unit is compact (only 1.95”deep) and weighs 5.1 oz.
Fitting in a standard 3.3” panel hole, the AvMap Ultra EFIS can be connected to the GPS receiver (included) and to the aircraft Pitot-static system to provide reliable and advanced ADAHRS.
The unit is designed for light-sport, ultra light and experimental aircrafts, and contains solid-state gyros, accelerometers, magnetic field sensors, air data sensors and UAV Navigation motion processor. The Ultra EFIS is the outcome of more than eight years of motion and flight control experience at UAV Navigation.
“AvMap products range is extending beyond navigation to include more and more avionic tools with the objective to provide a complete AvMap Glass Cockpit system, said Simone Lazzarini, CEO at AvMap. “To this purpose we are selecting the best partners in the market to work with, such as UAV Navigation.”
AvMap allows an aircraft owner to choose an EFIS solution: stand alone or integrated with EKP V. Depending on available cockpit space and navigation needs, a choice of two displays or one unique device exists.
The Ultra EFIS is the stand alone solution for panel mounting; otherwise, if you already own an EKP V, you may consider buying the A2 ADAHRS module to be used together with the Cockpit Docking station to complete the AvMap EFIS set. The A2 ADAHRS module in facts extends the functionalities of the EKP V Aeronautical Navigator bringing attitude and airspeed to the moving map and converting it into a centralized Glass Cockpit System for both navigation and primary flight display.
The Ultra EFIS will be on sale starting this Fall at $1,200, while the complete AvMap EFIS set (EKP V + Cockpit Docking Station + A2 ADAHRS) retails at $2,750.
AvMap will be at EAA AirVenture 2013 in booth 3025 in building C or can be contacted at 800-363-2627
