Characteristics:

The fully re-engineered KTX2 is a super light weight, compact model S transponder with low current consumption and a premium TFT-colour display. Regardless of whether it is used in sport, microlight aircraft, gliders or balloons – the KTX2 offers maximum possible safety due to provision of precise position and ID-data for the air traffic control and other air traffic participants. As a result, the KTX2 is a reliable device to prevent collisions.

Features:

  • Sensational low weight of only 360 grams (0.79lb) – ideal not only for gliders and microlight aircraft
  • Smallest dimensions – for an easy and flexible installation
  • Minimal current consumption – ideal for battery-operation in gliders and balloons
  • Large, high-contrast, durable TFT colour display for best readability even under direct sunlight
  • Intuitive handling – developed from pilots for pilots
  • Excellent cost-to-performance ratio
  • Built-in high-precision, temperature compensated altitude encoder to connect to the static port
  • The hardware of the KTX2 is designed to deliver precise position data (extended squitter) for ADS-B.
  • Via the RS232 interface, an appropriate GPS receiver can be connected (supplemental ETSO-C166b certification in preparation)
  • Possibility of firmware upgrades
