[Avionics Today 04-09-2015] Avidyne has introduced new additions to its suite of 1090MHz and 978MHz Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) solutions. The integrated avionics manufacturer announced the new MLX200 and MLX210 transceivers, both designed for operators flying below 18,000 feet in U.S. airspace.
The MLX200 provides 978MHz ADS-B In and ADS-B Out, which can be displayed on Avidyne’s IFD540 and IFD440 GPS/NAV/COMs, and also on an Avidyne EX500, EX600 or EX5000 Multi-Function display (MFD). MLX210 has the same features as the MLX200 except that it also has a compliant GPS sensor built in. It is designed for customers with an Avidyne EX500, EX600 or EX5000 MFD, but without a compatible or compliant GPS.
“In addition to our new IFD440 and IFD540 customers, we have a huge installed base of EX500, EX600 and EX5000 MFD customers who can now use these products to comply with the ADS-B mandate and display FIS-B weather and traffic," said Dan Schwinn, CEO of Avidyne.
