New SkyView COM Radio and Two-Place Stereo Intercom - April 2013
DYNON AVIONICS COMPLETES THE PANEL
Woodinville, WA, April 8th, 2013 - Dynon announces two new products to its leading line of avionics: an innovative integrated COM radio for SkyView, and a full-featured two-place stereo Intercom. Michael Schofield, Dynon Marketing Manager, notes “Dynon’s mission is to deliver innovative avionics at an unparalleled value. With our new Intercom and SkyView COM Radio, Dynon now offers a complete panel of avionics for experimental and light sport aircraft.”
A REVOLUTIONARY INTEGRATED SKYVIEW COM RADIO
The SV-COM-C25 changes the way pilots use their COM radio with a powerful, flexibleinterface that is designed to reduce cockpit workload.
With tight integration to the SkyView system, the SV-COM-C25 allows pilots to tune frequencies by airport and station type – rather than by spinning in a number – at the touch of a button on the dedicated control panel. Pilots can also send frequencies to the radio from SkyView’s airport information pages. Dual concentric knobs let pilots spin in frequencies the old-fashioned way when they are feeling nostalgic (or are following ATC instructions.) SkyView will identify the airport and station type while frequencies are tuned to ensure the pilot is talking to the right radio station.
The SV-COM-C25 consists of a dedicated control panel and a remote-mounted RF module: The control panel is only 3.53" x 1.80" x 1.27" deep and is available in horizontal and vertical versions. Two vertical control panels fit perfectly when mounted next to a 10" SkyView display, while two horizontal panels fit nicely under a 7" SkyView display. Although the SV-COM-C25 will continue to function with the rest of SkyView powered off, it does rely on SkyView for setup. Therefore, the SV-COM-C25 must be installed with a Dynon SkyView system.
Other features include dual watch, fully backlit and auto-dimming controls, one-touch flip-flop with remote trigger ability, transmit and receive indicators (with active/standby receive differentiation), and a stuck mic indicator with transmit time-out.
The SV-COM-C25 is available June 2013 for $1,295. It comes in horizontal and vertical versions; 25 kHz spacing only; Not TSO’d.
SV-INTERCOM-2S: AUDIO PANEL FEATURES AT HALF THE PRICE
Dynon’s new two-place stereo intercom solves the problem of having to choose between an under-featured intercom and an expensive audio panel. The SV-INTERCOM-2S has everything pilots need to connect EFIS systems, stereo music, and other audio devices in their panels.
Ample inputs are provided to handle the audio sources in modern instrument panels. These include: dual muting inputs (one stereo for music), four non-muting inputs (one stereo for capable EFIS systems such as SkyView; the rest mono for radios and other avionics), dual stereo headset connections, and dual radio outputs.
Selectable Auto Mute automatically turns down the music when a radio or other non-muting input (such as an EFIS alert) receives audio. A single knob press toggles whether or not intercom speech mutes music as well. To minimize background noise, the SV-INTERCOM-2S has independent intercom voice activation, so talking on one headset won't open up squelch on the other. Radio broadcasts are isolated so only the person pressing their PTT is heard over the air, with the pilot's transmission receiving priority when both PTTs are pressed. A failsafe connection between the primary radio and the pilot's headset allow radio transmissions in all conditions.
While the SV-INTERCOM-2S integrates seamlessly with Dynon SkyView systems, it can be installed in ANY experimental or light sport aircraft, even those without other Dynon products in the panel.
The SV-INTERCOM-2S is available June 2013 for $295. Horizontal and Vertical faceplates are included, as are headset jacks. Not TSO’d.
