SkyView GPS Receiver: The SV-GPS-250 is a sensitive, WAAS enabled GPS receiver and antenna. The advantage of having the receiver packaged in one unit with the antenna, is that the output is a standard NMEA serial connection. A shielded antenna cable, with its inherent attenuation of signal and greater difficulty of routing, is not required to connect to the SkyView Display.
GPS Data: GPS latitude/longitude data is necessary for the SkyView to locate its position to display Synthetic Vision and the Moving Map. It is also necessary during calibration of the Remote Compass/Magnetometer, in order for SkyView to determine current location and the correct magnetic inclination.
Redundancy: An SV-GPS-250 is not necessary but highly recommended for the SkyView System. As a backup, NMEA standard GPS input can be utilized from a third party GPS receiver, but most GPS units output updates at 1/second, not 5/second like the SV-GPS-250 does. Another major advantage of the SV-GPS-250 is that it derives its power from a SkyView Display Backup Battery. So in the event of loss of ship's power the GPS will continue to be powered. Another advantage is the SV-GPS-250 is designed to be used with SkyView, and no setup is required.
Connections: Each SV-GPS-250 contains:
Four leads to attach to the SkyView Main Harness, including RX, TX, 8V, and Ground.
Not just for SkyView
The SV-INTERCOM-2S is for ALL experimental and light sport aircraft.
High-Fidelity Audio Circuitry
No more scratchy, garbled voices. Stereo music that sounds fantastic!
Dual Radio Support
The SV-INTERCOM-2S has dual radio outputs for the well-equipped panel. Fail-safe between the pilot headset and primary radio allows communication without intercom power.
Horizontal and Vertical faceplates are both included; headset jack kits also included.
Selectable Auto Mute turns down the music when a radio or other non-muting input (like an EFIS alert) receives audio. A single knob press toggles whether or not intercom speech also mutes music.Independent intercom Voice Activation reduces background noise; talking on one headset won’t open up squelch on the other. Radio broadcasts are also isolated so that only the person pressing the PTT is heard over the air.
|Muting Inputs||1x stereo, differential, noise-rejecting music input, with panel-mounted music jack override.|
|1x mono input for additional muting source.|
|Non-muting Inputs||1x stereo, differential, noise-rejecting EFIS input.|
|3x mono inputs for radios and other avionics.
One of these is fail-safed to the pilot headset.
|Headsets||2x stereo headsets supported.|
|Radio Outputs||2x com radio outputs. External PTT selector required.|
