VISTA, Calif., 7 April 2014. Sandel Avionics Inc., a manufacturer of retrofit avionics, has unveiled its first all-digital attitude heading reference system (AHRS), the SG102/D, which is identical to the SG102 (MOD2) without the analog interfaces.
The Sandel SG102/D is lighter in weight, and initializes in one minute—3X faster than the original SG102. It also comes with a selectable low- and high-speed ARINC 429 output, which allows for additional interface options, such as radar systems, satellite communication antennas, and forward-looking infrared (FLIR) stabilization.
The SG102/D AHRS will be available starting May 2014. For more information and its specifications, www.sandel.com/sg102D.
