“The New Remote Magnetometer adds additional installation flexibility for customers building SkyView into their aircraft,” says Michael Schofield, marketing manager.
SkyView’s ADAHRS provides pilots with all their primary flight instruments in a package barely bigger than a deck of cards. In some aircraft, finding a suitable location for the ADAHRS is challenging due to competing location requirements for the air data, attitude, and magnetic heading sensors.
To ease installation, Dynon now offers the SV-MAG-236, an optional remote magnetometer that lets customers install the magnetic sensors in an ideal location in the aircraft.
The SV-MAG-236 has a list price of $180, but will be available at introduction for $140. The SV-MAG-236 is expected to be released in late April.
Meanwhile, SkyView 12.2 includes a software update for SkyView’s SV-XPNDR-261 transponder. This update adds support for the ADS-B data format required to use the Garmin GTN and GNS (WAAS versions) IFR navigators as a GPS position source for FAA 2020 ADS-B mandate compliance credit.
