Trig Avionics will unveil its new avionic stack products at Oshkosh, including new VHF radios and audio panels.
Making their debut will be Trig’s TY96 and TY97 Aviation Radios which feature dual 25 kHz and 8.33 kHz radio design. With a slimline case that is 1.3” high, each radio saves panel space, according to company officials.
Both radio models, the TY96 (10 Watt) and TY97 (16 Watt), feature “Push Step” providing faster tuning and “Say Again” which allows instant play-back of your last transmission. This is an advantage to student and even experienced pilots — saving the embarrassment of asking air traffic to repeat a message, company officials note.
An Emergency button automatically sets 121.5 MHz and volume levels. Finally, a USB port allows the upload of an airfield database that can contain more than 200 of your preferred frequencies and identifiers.
Trig is also showing off two new audio panels at Oshkosh, the TMA44 and TMA45. Both models are dual comm and dual nav audio panels.
The TMA45 has entertainment features and Bluetooth wireless support for music and mobile devices.
The TMA45 hosts 2-6 seats, and has Trig Digital Noise Reduction (TDNR) to automatically select the optimum level of intercom squelch and mic threshold to reduce cockpit noise. Trig Active Mute (TAM) further reduces unwanted background noise from radio static producing class leading audio.
The TMA44 hosts 2-4 seats and has mono entertainment and communication options. Each audio panel has a built in intercom and marker beacon receiver.
The new products are expected to be available in late 2015. Expected prices are $3,600 for the TY97; $2,855 for the TY96; $2,160 for the TMA45; and $1,280 for the TMA44.
