Installation:

The VT-01 main unit is normally installed using our VT-01 Mounting-Rack

 

Wiring:

The VT-01 requires a wiring harness from steering unit to main unit. Its a standard D-SUB Harness. If you purchase our mounting kit, all required connectors and small parts are included.

 

Besides that you will need a power supply cable. Again its standard D-Sub so you can create your own one or use our finished product VT-0103-2.

 

In addition to the connectors a data cable is required. We offer a certified datacable at reasonable prices, you can select any required length meter-wise (GAV-4709-0005A)

VT-01 Mode-S Transponder Control Head

 

The control-head connects to a VT-01 Mode-S Transponder main unit and has an alticoder included. The VT-01 main-unit is then installed in a special mounting kit and can easily be removed/exchanged without modification of aircraft wiring. This solution is ideal for clubs who want to share one main unit in different aircraft or operators with demand for high availability and easy maintenance.

 

Required items for a full VT-01 two-block installation:

 

    main unit (VT0102)

    control head/steering unit (VT-0101)

    Mounting Rack (VT-0103-1)

    Connection Kit/Power supply cable (VT-0103-2)

    Datacable (GAV-4709-0005A)

 

Typical VT-01 Installation:

- main unit (VT0102)

- control head/steering unit (VT-0101)

- Mounting Rack (VT-0103-1)

- Connection Kit/Power supply cable (VT-0103-2)

- Datacable (GAV-4709-0005A)

AIR Control Display

 

 

The NEW AIR COM 8.33 radio from AIR Avionics is compatible with the VT-01 main unit  to provide a radio and transponder in one 57mm unit.

You are able to pre order the AIR COM installation now by Contacting Us

 

For the first time it is possible to combine the control of a radio and an external MODE-S transponder into a single compact 57mm instrument. To facilitate this, a mode-S transponder (the AIR Avionics VT-01 main unit) can be connected to the AIR Control Display. Panel space is precious, displays get larger, and an ever growing number of instruments needs to fit into shrinking panels. AIR COM comes to rescue. Directly connecting the mode-S transponder to the AIR Control Display means that both instruments together only need a single small 57mm cutout. This is a big step towards more panel space and saves costs.

Compatibility

 

With optional connector adapters AIR COM can easily be retrofitted in existing installations without the need for new cabling. AIR COM will also offer an open protocol for the communication with third-party devices - like navigation systems which can act as remote control for the radio.

Installation

 

AIR Control Display fits into a standard 57mm cutout. AIR COM and AIR Control Display can be installed as one unit with a depth of only 141mm or as two separate blocks with a depth of only 60mm for the AIR Control Display including its cable connectors.
