The technology company TQ-Group, which has established a reputation as a meeting the highest quality in engineering and precision products, is debuting two of their general aviation product ranges for the EAA AirVenture audience this year. One is an ADS-B transponder in the final stages of certification and the other is a VHF Transceiver that has become very popular in Europe.
The KTX2, a new Mode S transponder, meets thee ETSO/TSO requirements and is expected to be certified according to EASA standards by the end of this year. The unit is very light and has low power consumption. It can be installed in either a 6¼" radio stack opening or in a 2¼" round panel hole. The units have bright digital read-outs that are easy to read, even in bright sunlight. TQ-Systems developed the product to give aircraft owners a reasonably priced option for meeting the 2020 ADS-B mandate.
The company has chosen to utilize 1090ES technology, based on modern Mode-S transponders, in their KTX2. Installation of this technology simply requires connecting the KTX2 to an existing antenna and adding an appropriate WAAS GPS source.
The KRT2 VHF transceiver has already been installed in over ten thousand aircraft across Europe. It features an integrated intercom, a dual watch mode (the pilot can monitor two frequencies at the same time) and it has 100 memory slots for preferred frequencies that tie in with airport identifiers. The radio can be updated with new software at any time. Like the transponder, the KRT2 features digital electronics which make it light, compact and reliable.
TQ-Systems will exhibit at the EAA AirVenture Convention in Oshkosh this summer, July 23 to 29. TQ-Systems will be located in Hangar B, Booth 2106/7.
