New ADS-B Global Traffic Receivers

Zaon Flight Systems announces the new MX1090 ADS-B and MX1090-GR traffic receivers.

The MX1090 is fully compatible with PCAS XRX and offers hybrid traffic management. Capable of tracking up to 50 aircraft, plus XRX traffic, the MX1090 offers a high level of accuracy and detection, according to the company. The MX1090 can also receive TIS-B messages, which are the broadcast of all traffic being monitored by an ATC RADAR facility. When combined with the detection capabilities of the XRX, the hybrid result allows detection to 100 n.m., and tracking of both ADS-B and non-ADS-B traffic. Interface options include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and two RS232 ports for connecting to the XRX or a Garmin GPS.

The MX1090-GR is an ADS-B solution optimized for ground use in monitoring and tracking up to 100 ADS-B (and TIS-B) traffic data. It offers USB, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi options.

Prices start at $399.

  1. Now that is funny. Looks pretty cool and I've always loved the Zaon solution, but that is an impressive acronym quotient.
    MX1090
    ADS-B
    PCAS
    XRX
    TIS-B
    ATC ... okay, an easy one
    Wifi
    RS232
    USB

  2. That all sounds great, assuming I've translated correctly, however, my experience with the Zaon XRX was dismal. Despite two returns to Zaon for repairs, and much effort to get it properly configured & interfaced with a Garmin 696, I ended up returning it to Sporty's.

    Thanks to Sporty's for providing full credit although the return was several months after purchase.

    Like I said, it all sounds great but if the basic XRX unit is inaccurate & unreliable what's the use. Maybe I got a lemon but not willing to exercise my Visa/Mastercard again to find out!
