STX 165 Is A Compact Design With Applications In The GA, UAV Markets
Albuquerque based avionics manufacturer Sandia Aerospace has received FAA TSO certification for its new Mode C Transponder with built-in encoder. The small and light weight STX 165 has a ½ 3ATI front bezel and measures approximately 7” inches behind the panel depth.
The small panel space requirement allows the STX 165 to be mounted outside of the center stack, reserving that space for other avionics. In addition to displaying transponder code, the STX 165 also displays Pressure Altitude, Three timer functions and with the addition of an optional OAT Probe, Outside Air Temperature, Density Altitude and even an icing alert. The STX 165 has an introductory list price of $1700.
Sandia is also introducing a remote version, the STX165R. The STX165R is ideal for interface to onboard Nav Management systems and for use UAV applications. The STX 165 is certified and shipping, and will be on display at AirVenture at bot the Gulf Coast and Pacific Coast booths at the show.
