Avidyne gets TSO on AXP340 Mode S Transponder

AXP340-3-4-450       Avidyne is pleased to announce that we have received Technical Standard Order (TSO) and European TSO (ETSO) approval for our new AXP340 Mode S Transponder with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out. The AXP340 transmits ADS-B information via Extended Squitter (ES) to appropriately-equipped ground stations and other ADS-B In-equipped aircraft, providing improved airborne surveillance as well as vital information for airport ground surveillance. Equipping with an AXP340 allows general aviation aircraft owners to meet the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) NextGen mandate, as well as international requirements for ADS-B Out. As a slide-in replacement for existing KT76A/KTT78A and KT76C transponders, the AXP340 is designed to easily upgrade existing Mode A/C equipment to Mode S, while adding additional functionality like a Direct-entry Numeric Keypad, Pressure Altitude & GPS Lat/Lon readout, Flight ID entry, one-touch VFR code entry, a Stop Watch Timer,  Flight Timer, and Altitude Alerter.  Some additional wiring and tray replacement are required to add ADS-B functionality.   The AXP340 Mode S Transponder has a ‘Plug & Play’ price of $3,995 and is available now. Connector kit and Mounting Tray are an additional $250.  Antenna is sold separately for installations that need a replacement antenna.
