The KT 76A has established a worldwide reputation as the standard in Mode A/Mode C identification. Since its introduction, more than 165,000 KT 76 and KT 76A transponders have been installed worldwide.
All Mode A and Mode C transponders perform the same functions: replying to radar interrogations, providing Air Traffic Control (ATC) with All-Mode identification, and showing your ground speed on the controller’s radar monitor. With an encoding altimeter or blind encoder, the transponder can also transmit altitude.
The KT 76A is a Class 1A transponder providing maximum performance at altitudes up to 35,000 feet. This compact unit was among the first of our avionics to incorporate Large Scale Integrated (LSI) circuitry, reducing both weight and power requirements. And today, its design efficiency and rugged construction offer a near-ideal balance of performance, reliability, and value.
With ADS-B KT 76A owners need an affordable solution to keep them flying. BendixKing introduced the KT 74 which is the lowest cost solution for KT 76A owners that already have a panel-mounted GPS WAAS source. This solution is a slide-in replacement for your KT 76A, and will get you back flying in no time!
For KT 76A owners who are looking to keep their units, and go with a UAT option, we have that too. The KGX series will get you ADS-B if you want to keep your existing transponder or if you need a GPS WAAS source without changing your panel. Going with the KGX also gets you ADS-B in via wifi to a tablet!
