The newly developed Mode-S Transponder KTX2 incorporates latest technology – resulting in a highly efficient airborne equipment, offering lowest possible power consumption, smallest dimensions and lowest weight.
• Sensational low weight of only 360 grams (0.79lb) – ideal for gliders and microlight aircraft
• Smallest dimensions – for an easy and flexible installation
• Large, high-contrast, durable TFT colour display for best readability even under direct sunlight
• Minimal current consumption – ideal for battery-operation in gliders and balloons
• Intuitive handling – developed from pilots for pilots
• Excellent cost-to-performance ratio
The above features are the argument especially for gliders, ultralight aircraft and balloons, to be equipped with the KTX2. The current consumption of a Mode-S transponder is generally an indication which depends on numerous of parameters. In Mode S operation in busy airspace it can cause some 10,000 queries per minute. In this case, the transponder will respond accordingly and frequently increasing the total energy consumption.
In the technical data we provide to you data you can trust when you designing a battery-operated system.
The KTX2 offers maximum possible safety due to provision of precise position and ID-data for the air traffic control and other air traffic participants. As a result, the KTX2 is a reliable device to prevent collisions.
The transponder can easily be installed in cockpits where there is limited space. The panel cutout is the standard 57mm and body length of 144mm allows room for handling full panels which simplifies installation. The KTX2 has an integrated high precision pressure sensor.
