Oshkosh: Avidyne launches new plug and play avionics stack

Posted 25 July 2011 · Add Comment

Avidyne introduced a full line of panel-mounted, plug-and-play avionics for general aviation aircraft at the world famous Oshkosh Airshow in Wisconsin, USA today.

Avidyne’s new avionics stack includes the IFD540 FMS/GPS/ Navigation/ Communication system with touch screen user interface, the AMX240 stereo Audio Panel with Marker Beacon, the AXP340 Mode S Extended Squitter (ES) Transponder, and the attitude-based DFC90 Digital Autopilot.

Each of these products is designed to be a plug-and-play replacement for previous-generation avionics systems, while adding significant performance, ease-of-use, and safety enhancements. The IFD540 is a plug-and-play replacement for the popular GNS530 series navigators, the AMX240 is a plug-and-play replacement for the GMA340 and PMA8000 series audio panels, the AXP340 is a plug-and-play replacement for existing KT76A/KT78A transponders, and the DFC90 is currently certified as a plug-and-play replacement for the STEC55X autopilot.

 “Pilots and industry experts around the world have continually cited Avidyne as the ‘ease of use’ winner over our competitors in virtually every product category where we have had head-to-head evaluations, and these new panel-mounted products will set the bar even higher for innovation and overall ease of use,”  said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne’s chief operating officer.  “Installation is always a significant cost contributor with any avionics upgrade, so we decided early on to offer plug-and-play solutions that can reduce the overall cost of acquisition and enhance value for many of our customers,” he said.
