Dynon Avionics will add integrated support for the Vertical Power VP-X Pro and VP-X Sport electronic circuit breaker systems within the SkyView Glass Panel displays.
The VP-X system will enable pilots to monitor and control their entire electrical system using a SkyView display. The VP-X pilot display appears as a window along with the SkyView Engine Monitor, Primary Flight Display and GPS Moving Map. Pilots will be able to monitor the health of their electrical system, view and control the status of individual circuits, and respond to circuit faults using the SkyView display. Further, trim and flap position via the VP-X is displayed on the SkyView.
The VP-X Pro provides over 30 power circuits, including trim and flap circuits, to provide enough capacity to wire almost any two- or four-place experimental or light sport aircraft, according to company officials.
Robert Hamilton, Director of Sales and Marketing for Dynon, stated: “Many SkyView customers are asking for VP-X support; it is one of our most highly requested features. We are excited to put this on our development schedule. We share Vertical Power’s high quality standards and appreciate the innovations they are bringing to the experimental market with the VP-X.”
“The VP-X offers a tremendous amount of capability at a very affordable price, and we’re excited to be working on this integration with Dynon,” said Marc Ausman, President of Vertical Power Inc. “The VP-X is based on the same field-proven technology used in hundreds of Vertical Power systems flying today.”
Dynon plans to license the VP-X SkyView application for $275, with availability by the end of 2011. Customers can configure and test the VP-X system using Vertical Power’s free Windows PC-based Configurator application.
