The VP-X system enables pilots to monitor and control their entire electrical system using a SkyView display. The VP-X pilot portion will appear as a window along with the SkyView engine monitor, primary flight display and GPS moving map. Pilots will be able to monitor the health of their electrical system, view and control the status of individual circuits, and respond to circuit faults using the SkyView display. Further, trim and flap position via the VP-X will also be displayed.
The VP-X Pro offers more than 30 power circuits, providing enough capacity to wire almost any two- or four-place Experimental or Light Sport Aircraft. The VP-X replaces older mechanical components with modern, solid-state technology to increase reliability, reduce weight and simplify wiring.
“Many SkyView customers are asking for VP-X support, said Robert Hamilton, Dynon’s director of sales and marketing. “It is one of our most highly requested features. We are excited to put this on our development schedule. We share Vertical Power’s high quality standards and appreciate the innovations they are bringing to the Experimental market with the VP-X.”
Vertical Power President Marc Ausman is looking forward to the collaboration. “The VP-X offers a tremendous amount of capability at a very affordable price, and we’re excited to be working on this integration with Dynon,” he said. “The VP-X is based on the same field-proven technology used in hundreds of Vertical Power systems flying today.”
Dynon plans to license the VP-X SkyView application for $275, with availability by the end of 2011. Customers may configure and test the VP-X system using Vertical Power’s free Windows PC-based Configurator application.
