NavWorx, Inc. announced an affordable solution for Experimental and LSA aircraft owners with the release of its ADS600-EXP. This announcement came on the heels of the FAA's ADS-B rule change in February. The FAA concluded that devices must meet the "performance requirements" of TSO-C154c.
NavWorx ADS600-EXP is a complete ADS-B solution for experimental and LSA aircraft. The ADS600-EXP communicates with a wide variety of display systems via Wi-Fi and RS232. For a limited time, NavWorx is offering the ADS600-EXP at the industry's lowest price of $869.
Design of the NavWorx ADS600-EXP is based on the company's ADS600-B, a FAA TSO/STC certified unit. Both comply with the ADS-B mandates of TSO-C154c and TSO-C145c. The ADS600-EXP is a Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) and provides full ADS-B In and Out operations. Unlike 1090ES solutions, the ADS600-EXP offers all the benefits of an UAT solution. These include free broadcast weather and flight information services.
All ADS600 UAT devices come with NavWorx' patent-pending TransMonSPETM. This device easily installs on the aircraft's existing transponder coax cable to provide for single point of entry of the squawk code, ident, and Mode A/C. TransMonSPETM also provides pressure encoder data to the ADS600-series. It meets the FAA's requirement to have a Single Point of Entry for the squawk code, and satisfies the FAR that requires both the transponder and ADS-B to use the same pressure encoder. TransMonSPETM is TSO certified and will interface with older transponders eliminating any need to replace the transponder or altitude encoder.
NavWorx ADS-B solutions are also available for certified aircraft offering an affordable solution for operators with a variety of installation requirements. The company also offers pre-built harnesses and coax cables, available on its website store.
