It was a grand week for the avionics world as AEA2012 took place in early April, 2012. One of the highlights of that event is the annual "New Product Introductions" session whereby dozens of avionics manufacturers and vendors line up for a chance, rapid-fire, to tell the aviation world what great new products they'll be offering for the coming year.
One of the NPI presentations surrounded the latest offerings form Trig Avionics. Andy Davis, Trig CEO took to the stage to launch the Trig TY91 and TY92 radios. Both models are 2 ¼ inch panel mounted, well suited for light and general aviation pilots looking for a compact and certified 25 kHz and 8.33 kHz VHF comms solution. The TY91 has a nominal power output of 6 watts and will suit the majority of general aviation airplanes that have a 14 or 28 volt supply. The TY92 has a nominal power output of 16 watts and is designed for use with a 28 volt power supply. The TY92 is ideal for high performance and high altitude airplanes, either as a primary or back up radio.
Key features of the TY91 and TY92 include; low weight, compact size, simple operation via positive controls (can be used whilst wearing gloves), a crisp display, dual watch function, 9 memory pre-sets, a built in speaker amplifier and a two place intercom as standard.
Davis also noted that Trig’s TT31 and TT22 transponders can be installed in a GA aircraft today -- and with a software update -- will be 2020 ADS-B mandate ready -- offering pilots practical and affordable ADS-B technology. “Only a few weeks ago Trig achieved FAA’s C166b certification for our TT31 and TT22 transponders. Installation of C166b compliant ADS-B transponders in the United States is subject to STC approval. Today I’m pleased to share that by the end of this month we’ll have STC approval of the first ‘mandate ready’ 1090ES ADS-B Out installation in a Part 23 airplane. This is another world first. Next month we’ll begin shipping our C166b transponder software, both in new units and as an upgrade option to existing Trig customers”
